The wise Ben Franklin said ...

Gentle Reader, we have the witty Mr Peters to thank for this:

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 liter 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 wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of s#*t.

Hello White-san,

Hajimemashite, my name is Yoshi and I am operating http://www.sunnypages.jp , an English website designed for foreign residents and visitors to Tokyo. I was wondering if you could help us improve the quality of Sunnypages so that we can provide better service to foreigners in Tokyo. We really love your blog and would like to talk to you. Best regards, Yoshi
