    it says that even moderate drinking can effect the auditory nervs and slow reaction time, I wonder what the people that drink a little wine while listening to their system have to say.

    Hon, could you get me another glass?

    Unfortunately, she drinks too, so it all falls on deaf ears.

    Sorry guys, it's not the alcohol that does it. Scientists just always need a complicated answer for everything. It's not the alcohol, it's the loud bars we go to...[​IMG]

    Does this mean a deaf person can have all the drinks he or she wants?

    People had told me that I should stop drinking sooner, but I wouldn't hear of it.

    Everything kills you, everything hurts you in some way. This stuff changes every other week. One week it prevents heart attacks, the next week it makes you deaf, soon they'll probably say it makes you better in bed.

    Screw it all and enjoy your life and have a beer.

    Was it Tom Waits who used to say - I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy?

    Anyway, WC Fields said, after hearing of a man drowned in a vat of whiskey - Death, where is thy sting?

    I see "evidence" in this thread that spelling ability may be implicated in something [​IMG]
