There is way more than 18 shots in a bottle of whiskey.

Ironically, excessive beer consumption on the part of females has been found to increase the likelihood of pregnancy.

Fond memories of doing physical exams at the VA hospital in med school. Every last patient I ever saw, with only one exception, was in for disease related to either alcohol or tobacco, or both. You could easily pick out the alcoholics just on the genital exam: soft, small, squishy testicles. Sickening to feel. Made me a believer!

"Also, it's known that alcoholic men can develop signs of low testosterone, including shrunken testicles and enlarged breasts."

This ex[plains Ted Kennedy.

Good one! He's like the poster child for their research...

Teddy Kennedy, we found your problem! (just don't post the picture of him on the dock, Pleeeeeese)

Then you'll want to avoid looking directly at post #20, just as you would want to avoid looking directly at Teddy in person!

What a load of crap. My Dad was the town drunk and my Mom had 9 NINE living children, 1 misscarriage and twins that died died because they were premature (l944). If the twins were born today, they would probably have lived with the medical technology we have today.


DO NOT BELIEVE THIS BUNCH OF DO-DO. By the way, I do not drink at all and do not recommend it.

There is way more than 18 shots in a bottle of whiskey.

Eighteen holes did not become the standard until the early 1900s, but from 1764 onward, more courses copied the St. Andrews model.

*****

Then, on the other hand there is another explanation:

When asked why golf consists of 18 holes, a man jokingly says that it's from 18 shots being in a bottle of whiskey and that when done drinking that many (while playing the game), he reckons the round was then considered done.

****

Big Surprise

Opioids also cause hypogonadism and low testosterone levels.
