Default This is why we should all be drinking beer....

To my friend who enjoys a beer.. . And those who don't. As Ben Franklin said:
In wine there is wisdom ,
In beer there is freedom ,
In water there is bacteria.
In a number of carefully controlled trials ,
Scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day ,
At the end of the year we would have absorbed more than
1 kilo of Escherichia coli , (E. Coli) - bacteria found in feces.
In other words , we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.
However , we do NOT run that risk when
Drinking beer & wine (or tequila , rum , whisky or other liquor) ,
Because alcohol has to go through a purification
Process of boiling , filtering and/or fermenting.
Remember:
Water = Poop , Beer = Health .
Therefore, it's better to drink beer and talk stupid ,
Than to drink water and be full of ****.

Mr. Franklin was a wise man.

The number of quotes falsely attributed to Benjamin Franklin is almost as many as Winston Churchill.
