"The University of Toronto team found head injury patients who had drunk low amounts were 24% less likely to die than those who had not had any alcohol.

They said alcohol might one day be used as part of emergency treatment for some head injury patients. "

so before you take a fall , remember to take a drink first !
it seems to be in line with the suggestion that "a small amount of alcohol" is usually good for us .
just don't drink so much that you fall off the ladder - that's not the way to interpret this !

"unser schatz" would mean that we are sharing it (the drink) - i'd rather have my own drink without having to share , but don't mind sharing a bottle Laughing .

Make mine a whiskey sour, hamburger. I finally learned to extract a cork from a bottle of wine, and it wasn't even a cork. It was plastic.

Saluta, osso.
Prosit, hbg

Now I don't have to worry that my mom dropped me on my head. Razz

Of course they neglected to say that many of the head injuries were the end result of drinking...

On the other hand, a person who drinks alot gets more health troubles.

Isn't that right?
