And she morphs into Colin Firth when she's round my way, clever gin soaked lassie that she is, more power to her elbow I say.

Gonorrhea Rates Fall but Other STDs Rise
By MIKE STOBBE, Associated Press Writer


ATLANTA - Gonorrhea has fallen to the lowest level on record in the United States, while the rates of other sexually transmitted diseases — syphilis and chlamydia — are on the rise, federal health officials said Tuesday.


The seemingly paradoxical findings can be explained by the cyclical nature of syphilis outbreaks and a rise in risky sexual behavior among gay men, researchers said.

Practice safer sex vaucluse (with your gay partners), you might as well be next.

My, my bangladeshi-moron - you do have a hard-on for me, haven't you? Sorry to tell you that there are parts of my body that are virginal and will always stay so - if you follow the path to be a chocolate soldier then more power to you . . . (you do realise you must clean the Hulk Hogan poster over your bed from time to time :lol:

Let's see - what's a nice description aside from supercillious git????

BW - to answer your original question alcohol lowers inhibitions.

Like all things, in moderation it is ok but taken to extremes it can be dangerous. Fundamentally drinking relaxes you & encourages conversation. It also promotes appetite (hence - aperitif).

After too much, things that are mundane seem funny & ugly people seem beautiful. You are also in danger of repeating things you say if you can say them at all.

There are also health benefits to moderate drinking - glass of red wine a day is supposed to be good for your heart. And if you believe everything you read in the gents at Brewerks then beer makes you clever too. More of a moot point but one better discussed over a drink.

Howard Marks once said all drugs depend on self, substance & surroundings to determine the outcome. Cheers
