Liver damage. . .

A BMI within range is supposed to be connected with a long life. Do weightlifters live longer than average? Rock stars don't regardless of their BMI.

Yeah, that crew is beating the odds.

But Ms. Winehouse has fallen victim to "the 27 club" and the Talkstats site showed that this club really exists.
There is a spike in fatalities at 27 for rockers, for a variety of reasons and
there is a spike in fatalities at 85 for everyone because that is supposed to be our built-in lifespan.

So I just checked the weight of beer, so lets say on a busy night I drink 12 beer that are 12floz, thats pretty close to 10lbs. Of course it all comes out as quick as it goes in. So that would equate for the lose of weight over night
A fluid ounce is a measure of volume, not weight

Re: 16oz Of Beer Equals A Pound


A gallon (128 fluid ounces) of water weighs 8.345404 lbs. We can simply divide 128 by 8.345404 to get the number of fluid ounces in a single pound.

The answer is then:

15.33778353 fluid ounces of water weighs one pound.

I haven't seen the graph, but IHIOGA (I have it on good authority) that the physical work output that men over 40 are capable of sharply declines.

Could be due to sarcopenia & other bad things.

Well I figured that the alcohol portion of the beverage was lighter then the water portion of it and all in all balanced out to darn near 1fl oz = 1 oz in this case. Hops be damned

Re: 16oz Of Beer Equals A Pound


I don't think that is the beers you drink. It could have something to do with the chips, dips, nachos and pizzas that are used to wash them down while you wait to eat and star all over again.
