... has been scientifically confirmed. Research on alcohol consumption found that, on average, moderate drinkers outlived heavy drinkers, who outlived non-drinkers.
The headline, "Why Do Heavy Drinkers Outlive Non-Drinkers?" focuses on the difference between the non-drinkers and the heavy drinkers, which, of course, obliges me to quote Animal House: "My advice to you [Flounder] is to start drinking heavily." Bluto's advice is the wrong take away from this research, though. The differences between heavy and non-drinkers are not significant when you compare them to the moderate drinkers.
The real take away, is my dad's wise advice: "Everything in moderation".

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” - Hunter S. Thompson

"We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen. We look at this Son and see God's original purpose in everything created. For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible, rank after rank after rank of angels—everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him."
- Colossians 1:15-16 The Message
I wrote down ... "and finds its purpose in him" from a message at church two weeks ago. I often am puzzled about my purpose. I don't seem to fit right anywhere. I'll never find my purpose by pursuing it or by "finding myself". I can only find it in pursuing Him and asking to be part of his purposes. Everything else is blind alleys and trap doors to terror. Though all paths look promising at the start, it is not so.
