drugs and alcohol

and now that i have your attention, notes on two tv commercials.

the first is that cartoon anti-pot commercial.

the moral of the story is that if you smoke pot, an alien will steal your girlfriend. if there's any good reason to stop smoking up, then i believe it's that. however, whoever came up with that commercial was clearly hopped up on LSD. the moral of that story is if you take hallucinagens, you get cool marketing jobs. pick your poison.

my second point is about the one sexy miller lite commercial whose main premise is that "miller lite has fewer calories ounce by ounce when compared to white wine." DON'T BE FOOLED BY THIS FOOLISH STATEMENT. of course miller lite has fewer calories per ounce of liquid. it also has less alcohol per ounce of liquid. in fact, most of a drink's calories come from the alcohol.

miller lite is 4% alcohol and has 96 calories for a standard 12 oz can.
a dry chardonnay can be 12% alcohol, and offers 230 calories for 12 oz, which is about 3 times the amount a respectable waiter would give you.

so yes, you are getting almost 3 times as many calories if drinking wine, but you're also getting drunk three times faster. if you want to lose weight, miller lite is not necessarily the answer. advice: stop drinking.
