This would make sense! I once saw a wino perform surgery on himself after he woke up and he had slept on broken shards of glass.

Lol drinking alcohol kills braincells = brainworkout for the highly educated.


Merlot tastes like crap sorry! It might have health benefits but serously people cant be this dense.

I have tried every wine possible and they all taste like puke. Seriously.. rotten grape puke. I want to use my wine glasses... and all I can put in them is Dr Pepper. If I put my pinky up I feel special.

Yummy Chambord.. wonder if that would do...

If you can get a hold of it where you are try some Duplin muscadine or their scuppernong. Some of their wines tastes exactly like your out in the woods and ran across a muscadine vine. A few taste just like muscadines , very tasty.

Ive tried mid and high.. and a few very high.. and its all pukey tasting. I mean Im not being funny... it has this acidic rotten fruit vomit quality that really turns me off. I like sweeeeet stuff. I get a fountain soda of Dr Pepper and put even more cherry syrup in it. LOL! Im a bourbon and whiskey lover... and its the sweet in those I love... and the musk of the barrel.

Season... I even tried wines from Italy when we were IN Itly.. gag.

Wow..thanks for that info! Might explain why my favorite moments for creating ATS threads is after the nightly glass or 2 of Merlot.

I dont drink as a rule.. I get, erm, ROWDY. I want to fight and drive.. and cant do either when Im drinking. So, I imagine me posting drunk would be a complete disaster that involves a ban and a tip to DHS cybercrimes division ...

You are not a wine person, and that is OK. I like Merlot, but it isn't love at first sip. Like beer, it is an acquired taste.

Yes we can pontificate the origins of man while 1/2 in the bag, I do not touchy the keyboardy at any time after 2 real glasses of wine.

Dont like beer either.

Im going to try what was suggested earlier. Seriously, I dont think I was born with whatever tastebuds wine drinkers have that tells them its yummy. Ive sure tried.. I mean Im not a young kid.. and Ive tried for years to find one. Even wine tasting trips with a few friends. Felt like I might as well be sipping mad dog 20/20.

I don't think Merlot was good at first. I first started with zinfandel, then moved to merlot. I really don't super like beer, it is an offensive taste to me. But if I was to try, I imagine I could develop a taste for it.

I have seen many an Einstein recite very difficult equations while in the middle of a "brain stimulation" at bars. It is truly impressive.
