No one's ever died from drinking beer. Prove me wrong.

Sadly, my good friend from Norway died from drinking beer. He was in his early forties and he loved his beer which he started drinking at sunrise until sunset. He would spend 6 months in the Philippines and 6 months in Norway, I don't think he drank much while in Norway but as soon as he hit the Philippines he would go on a binge. One day he felt bad, went to the doctor, diagnosed with liver and renal failure, died within a week or so.

I really miss him, he was a great buddy. Gentle giant.
There is no known medical cure for stupidity!

Oof. Sorry to hear about your friend. Makes me glad I don't have a strong enough constitution to drink or smoke a crazy amount.
Does your wife submit to you?

My old watchmate... retired at 65 and died at 66. Direct result of drinking beer, and only beer... every waking hour, for most of his adult life.
My father was a chain smoker for 61 years, from his teen start to his near 77th bday death from lung cancer. He could not sit through a 2-hour movie at a theater without two trips to the "restroom".

For someone to have died of something they've done for half a century isn't much of a tragedy.

Help others, especially animals. Say what you think, be considerate of others. Appreciate more than deprecate. Teach well, jump on teachable moments. Enjoy Korea as it is, without changing it. Dwell! Yet, at times, change your life for the better. "The most important [thing] is to have a good day."
