    My great aunt made it to 96 - cigarette in one hand, bourbon in the other.

    I don't drink beer, but when I do...

    Actually, no - beer is good when ice cold on a Summer day.

    My daily is Scotch, Oban to be specific.

    That's no comparison unless she pressed something heavy overhead. Strict press takes up lots of things.

    I believe my great aunt lived near 90 years participating in parties until dawn break.

    True, but Hackenschmidt lived the life of the affluent gentleman-academic-athlete, while Saxon was severely wounded in WW I, suffered from malnutrition and contracted pneumonia because he had to put on nightly strength shows (which were his livelihood) even in this weakened state.

    One could say that there were quite a few factors in play other than his beer drinking.

    Saxon did drink beer but probably nowhere near the quantities he claimed; he was receiving sponsorship from breweries and had to inflate his beer-drinking numbers considerably.

    I think the whole beer thing comes down to genetics. I've seen guys who hardly ever train and slam brewski's and chicken wings and they look good and are pretty strong. Though it always catches up to them as they get older. Other guys train hard and a few beers make them start getting basketball gut.

    Personally, a beer or two a year is enough for me. Never really saw the big thing with drinking beer. Though I do like a thick, dark Russian beer they serve at BJ's every once in a blue moon. If someone knows of a good Russian beer available here in the US, please share. A six pack would last me a year or more.

    Most beers taste very watered down to me. Rather have a shot of whiskey.

    A lot of my friends drank beer and played basketball. Every time I saw them, no matter what they were doing they had a beer in the hand. Standing around talking like big men. Drove me nuts to hear them talking about how tough they were or how this happened at work and they did this or said that. Found that most guys after just a few beers were intolerable to be around. Probably because I wasn't drinking too! No wonder their wife's told them to go outside, ha ha! They were way more apt to challenge me to something after they got a few beers in their gut.

    We'd go to a sports type bar occasionally and they would have dancing or karaoke there also. I remember one time a bunch of guys came in and started acting like fools. The waiter mentioned to our table they could be trouble and one of my friends said they would help if the loud-mouths got out of hand. I had to laugh to myself, as all my other friends agreed to fight if needed. All of them were a little more than loopy. I was the only one sitting there with my wits about me.

    I had already finished a sandwich, fries and a large glass of milk with a shot of whiskey in it, so I quietly paid my bill and walked out.

    To me, if a guy can't go without a drink for several months, he's got a problem. If you just gotta have a beer at a certain time of day always after a workout or hard days work to unwind, relax, etc, and get irritated if you can't, that should tell you something.

    I always like the feeling of being sober, alert and aware. Never liked that buzzed loopy feeling of a little too much alcohol. Friends I use to have would go camping with me years ago. They would always bring a bunch of beer and drink it the entire time we were camping out. They'd just sit around drinking and yakking. Cans, bottles laying around cluttering up the camp. I quit camping with them a long time ago.

    I never went through the whole binge drinking thing. Didn't need too.

    Drink a beer after a workout? Never. Rather have some more water, maybe some iced tea, take a shower and then go eat a good steak with my wife.

    Guess I never did figure out the "beer makes me a man" connection. But, hey, that's just me, don't take it personally. Beer almost always makes me feel bloated and slow and just does not taste all that good to me, so maybe that's part of it. Never acquired a taste for it. Plus, having an alcoholic relative who died from it and always reeked of beer maybe had an affect on me.

    I'd rather everyone eat garlic than drink beer.

    If I ever ran into someone who wanted to buy me a beer, please, make mine a nice juicy steak.
