    A Brooklyn woman whose mother suffered a heart attack and died after the two feuded over a pet feline can barely remember the fight, she told the Daily News on Wednesday. “I had one drink, and then I don’t know what happened,” Chandra Sutton, 50, said during a sitdown at Rikers Island.
  • National Bourbon Day June 14

    06/14/2017 10:59:43 AM PDT · by heterosupremacist · 39 replies
    In 1964, a Congressional Resolution designated Bourbon as America’s native spirit. Since then, there is nowhere else in the world that can make a whiskey and call it Bourbon. Like Scotch, Cognac and some other spirits that must meet certain standards as well as be produced in a particular geographical region, Bourbon is a whiskey which is only so named if distilled in the United States. To legally be a considered Bourbon, it must be 51 percent corn, stored in new (not aged) charred-oak barrels and distilled no more than 160 proof and barreled at 125 proof. This particular whiskey...

    Heavy drinking can lead to a number of serious health problems, including increased risk of cancer, heart disease, and dementia, but consuming even moderate levels of alcohol could be dangerous, as well, new research suggests. The study, published in The BMJ, finds that moderate drinkers were three times more likely to experience a decline in mental skills than people who drank no alcohol at all. For the study, researchers analyzed data on weekly alcohol intake in 550 healthy British men and women over a period of 30 years. The participants had an average age of 43 at the start of...

    Do they sell grain alcohol in Minnesota? I looked up the laws for the state and it says no alcohols over 80% ABV. Everclear sells a version of their grain that is 75.5% so it is possible. I live in Spain but have neighbors visiting the Bloomington area who I could ask to bring some back when they return. I want to make some infused liqueurs and the strongest non-flavored alcohol they sell here is 40% Vodka. Perhaps some Minnesota Freeper can answer this question?

    Many of us are all too familiar with the "beer goggles" effect: friends and strangers alike become more attractive after a drink or two. Undoubtedly, drinking alcohol lowers our inhibitions and makes us more open to experimentation with the same sex. In a new study, published in The Journal of Social Psychology, straight men were found to be more physically attracted to other men after a few drinks. "Most notably, alcohol intake was related to increased sexual willingness of men with a same-sex partner, suggesting a potential shift in normative casual sexual behavior among heterosexual men," wrote the authors in...

It's the second time in recent weeks such an error has been...

    During a port visit by the Blue Ridge to Manila in May 2008, for example, five of the Navy officers attended a “raging multi-day party, with a rotating carousel of prostitutes,” at the Shangri-La Hotel, according to the indictment.

On another port visit by the Blue Ridge to Manila in February 2007, Francis allegedly hosted another sex party for officers in the MacArthur Suite of the Manila hotel. During the party, “historical memorabilia related to General Douglas...

In October, Jeffny Pally died after being run over by a campus fire SUV. Police said Pally had an alcohol level more than three times the legal limit and had been sitting against the fire dept garage doors when they opened for the vehicle. Authorities said Pally had...

    Earlier this week, Wegmans became the latest company to face a backlash for carrying Trump-owned products. The supermarket chain sells five different Trump Winery wines at its ten stores in Virginia, where the vineyard is located, and a local chapter of the National Organization for Women called on its notoriously loyal fanbase to boycott Wegmans unless it agreed to remove the products from stores statewide. The company responded that it bases inventory “solely on how well [a product] sells,” and welcomed shoppers to “demonstrate their convictions.” Seeing that as an encouraging sign, a group called Stop Trump Wine materialized with...

The woman apparently asked the taco truck worker to heat up the taco, but when he refused, the woman became irate and pulled a gun on the worker. At that point, the woman’s boyfriend asked her to calm down, but she instead pulled the trigger, striking her boyfriend. Authorities...
