^^^ maybe so... but that has nothing to do with what they have as much as what is lacking in their lives..or perhaps they simply have a genetic disposition that prevents them from being happy or causes them to be depressed. Nobody truly believes a Mercedes will bring happiness to a person.

Or maybe they enjoy their life of drinking and drugging, like Bourdain. It eventually catches up with them, but they feel they're getting the most out of life by hard living. That's a choice.

^^^ why do I get the feeling you are trying to rile somebody up? Anyway, everything has its tradeoffs...if you enjoy getting stoned or drunk and you do it knowing your health is at risk... and you are likely shortening your life expectancy....well that's your choice. Perhaps dying before old age but living a vibrant life is the way some people want to go out.

Also many are misled by what they read...for example wine drinking has been touted as "healthy"...but as stated in a very recent NY times article, those studies were corrupted by money. The truth is a drink a day is carcinogenic and very likely to shorten your life by years...if you get Liver Cancer due to the constant toxins of alcohol drinking...you could die decades before you should.

Just saying.

I don't know who would be riled, but what I said is exactly what you said. They enjoy their lifestyle knowing the risks. We all do, for however we lead our lives, which could include other risk taking behaviors unrelated to drugs and alcohol.

You have to look at who is doling out that info, as slanted results can be given by 3rd party companies to hide who is really doing the funding of that reported research. I laugh when I hear a certain amount of "alcohol" is good for you. You can find whatever good benefits are by consuming other products that don't contain alcohol.

“Where else could I find nonsensical thinking trash such as yourself Sandby....nobody I know in real life i would say some of the stupid things I have seen you say...”
True. I use about .1% of my time, brain and abilities when addressing the children on here. That’s all they deserve out of me.

^^^^ I have to give you credit for being able to so consistently use just .1% of your capacity. Most people use significantly more than that just to breath......you must have lots of practice.

Sure...it makes sense that ingesting a "toxin" that has to be cleared out by the Liver is good for you. Why would anyone think this was not true?

You know, I am enjoying this... seeing what profiles I created after the fact...now I am 97 years old from Hell somewhere... thank you POF for giving me an opportunity for being anybody I want to be.

Not surprisingly, I didn't get any interest from any 97 year old women out there for this particular profile. And people say age is only in your head. You only are as old as you feel. Ha. Tell that to all of the 97 year old women out there whom I would be perfect for.

Remember, my internal quota is only five profiles per day..... that is opportune....I created five last night watching ten minutes of CNN... so I am willing to sacrifice five today. So long as I stay fifteen profiles ahead of the game, I'm happy. just sayin. :-)
