Alcohol is causing 2.8 Million deaths a year and Judge Kavanaugh according to his own testimony likes his beer. Is he in denial about his heavy alcohol use in his college years or a whole civilization refusing to fully acknowledge the great harm in alcohol?
A recent CNN report suggested that if you’re one of the third of all humankind who drinks alcohol, take note: There’s no amount of liquor, wine or beer that is safe for your overall health, according to a new analysis of 2016 global alcohol consumption and disease risk.
Kavanaugh’s confirmation process to the Supreme Court in USA has divided the country into two camps, which are debating if or not he drank excessively to the point of black outs? What is he saying and what are his Yale classmates saying? Did he lie under oath about his alcohol use? How would drunkenness affect his memory of the allegations made by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford?
Drunk and disorderly conduct is coming from the sky in Gilbert, Minnesota.
According to TwinCities.com, numerous birds have started to act erratically in the Midwest town, causing concerned citizens to call the police and report the animals, which have been flying into buildings and cars.
All this bad bird behavior is due to accidental drunkenness.
“The reason behind this occurrence is certain berries we have in the area have fermented earlier than usual due to an early frost, which in turn has expedited the fermenting process,” Gilbert police chief Ty Techar wrote in a press release about the reported incidents.
So how do you deal with a problem like drunken birds? Wait it out.
“There is no need to call law enforcement about these birds as they should sober up within in a short period of time,” Techar added.
The laws of nature don’t distinguish between different species and alcohol makes both birds and humans drunk, alike.
All the national news channel have been covering the issue of Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation round the clock in USA. But, none have brought up the perspective that adherence to one simple principle of Islam would have avoided the very issue of sexual assault under influence and the intense debate for the last several weeks in the US Senate.
