  • Answer: Unless you have a medical condition that makes drinking alcohol ill advised then 1-2 drinks per day for men and 1 drink per day for women is beneficial (particularly for the heart) and is actually recommended by many medical societies (but not the US gov/ CDC - they just say it is acceptable if done in moderation).

    Many people assume that this benefit is due to anti-oxidants in wine and so recommend only wine while looking down on beer and liquor. Studies have shown no difference in benefit between the different types of alcohol and so it is probably the alcohol itself that is beneficial and not other components.

  • Answer: Human beings are naturally social creatures and much of what we consider to be life affirming comes through social interaction. Alcohol, in limited quantities, tends to dis-inhibit behaviors through the mechanism of anesthesia in the frontal cortex of our brains. This can have mixed effects on behavior, and the social tendency is that we adhere to the old adage that birds of a feather flock together. In other words, you will find yourself hanging out with people who have a similar relationship with beverage alcohol that you do.

    As alcohol intake is increased, and the duration of usage increases, months, weeks, and years, there is a more pronounced effect on some users. That same anxiety that made alcohol such an effective social lubricant becomes an anesthetic for anxieties resulting from the activities of daily living. Some users drink to the point of becoming asocial, preferring to spend much of their time in autistic fantasy rather than actually engaging in social activities. Others spend time in social activities but with people who drink like they do. A sampling of bar patrons will reveal that ninety percent of the alcohol consumed is consumed by about 10 percent of the habitual patrons. The contents of the communications will reveal that the patrons are also spending their time in autistic fantasy land, but in the company of other similarly disengaged individuals.

    The effect over time for those who are susceptible to becoming chemically dependent is that they become increasingly withdrawn from meaningful social interaction, increasingly alienated from the general reality of those around them, and increasingly isolated because of their inability to respond appropriately to others.

  • Answer: If bullying is severe enough it completely destroys anyrelationships that already existed and eliminates any possibilityof ever forming any new ones. You decide that peer friendshipscannot exist as nobody in your group can ever be trusted as theyall will betray you eventually. You decide that everyone attemptingto be nice to you or help you is only doing so to get informationabout you so it can be used later in someway that will harm youmore than anyone has ever harmed you before. You rebuff allattempts by others to become friends as you know that ultimatelythey only want to hurt you and that being totally aloneforever (or as close to this as is possible and still be ableto live) is the only way to have any safety or stability in life.

    I know this as I was bullied for all 12 years of school and until Iwas 38 completely and totally believed all of what I wrote above,as that was all I had ever experienced from my peers since aboutage 10. I now do have a very small group of friends, but those havetaken time to find.
  • Answer: If the barometric pressure drops suddenly, as it does often before a storm, and your sinus passageway is blocked, the higher pressure in the sinus will press on the bones surrounding it to cause a horrible headache. When your nose is stuffy, the inner linings of your nose are swollen, and the same swelling can shut the sinus passageway, preventing air pressure inside your sinus from changing to balance the pressure outside, and you can develop a sinus headache.
