    English - drinking Germany DRY!

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/tm_obje...name_page.html

    ENGLAND's massive army of World Cup fans is drinking Germany dry, it emerged yesterday. Breweries warned beer could run out before the final because of huge demand from our supporters.

    In Nuremberg, organisers revealed 70,000 England fans who flooded the city drank 1.2 MILLION pints of beer - an average of 17 pints each. Astonished bar keeper Herrmann Murr said: "Never have I seen so many drink so much in such little time."

    Out of topic, but why do we feel like peeing so much after a pint or two of beer?

    Asprin sales are probably soaring though.

    drink two pints of water just as quickly as you did that beer.

    you'll have to pee then too.

    It dehydrates your whole body. Not only because alcohol is a diuretic which means it causes the kidneys to produce more urine, which in turn takes water out of your system, but the real reason it dehydrates you so much is that the liver uses large amounts of water to break down the alcohol. That's why you get a headache when you're hung over, your liver pulls water from your muscles and organs, including your brain.

    - Alcohol causes free radicals to be released in the body which require antioxidants to get rid of them.

    Alcohol slows fat burning - the body uses fat for energy. Alcohol blocks this ability to burn fat for energy, resulting in 30% less energy coming from fat. We certainly don't want unnecessary delays in burning the fat in our bodies.

    - If you consume more than just a couple drinks before bed, you will not get quality sleep. You will not go into REM.


    DRINK UP!

    Yeah it does work out at 17 pints since they've been there - not per day!

    How disappointing!
