    I'm sorry, are you complaining Michael posts whatever he wants on his own site?

    I'm sorry I'm raining on everybody's parade. But it is not harmless. In some people dependency will develop in a few years while in others it will take 150 years so they will die much sooner. There is no smart alcohol use. Alcohol dependency does not consider education level, social class, religion, personality or anything else. Indeed, other than genes, it is totally random. But dependency is not the only problem. Alcohol will make it much more probable to someone to be involved in violence, including domestic and vehicle related. Health problems, including those caused by the fat you talk about, are more likely in alcohol users.

    Even water is toxic for human, all depends on dose size. LSD could cause interim psychosis to normal people, but if you do have latent gene that causes schizophrenia it could make you insane permanently.

    Beer is pretty harmless, it makes you fat That reminds me it's friday, I should go and buy some beer(maybe kozel or something more special)...

    judging by my tone? LOL wow I'm shocked about your "Professional" way to check my health status.

    its impossible to hurt your health with GBL source: "↑ NTP Study Reports TR-406 Toxicology and Carcinogenesis Studies of γ-Butyrolactone (CAS No. 96-48-0) in F344/N Rats and B6C3F1 Mice (Gavage Studies) oder Cognitive Enhancement Research Institute Discussion." this source prove you life longer with GBL than without.

    its also impossible to kill you with LSD : http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/LSD#Angaben_zur_Giftigkeit

    "that the ratio of effective dose to lethal dose in humans is approximately 1:1000, that is a thousand times the dose of an effective dose in humans would lead to fatal poisoning (for comparison, alcohol and nicotine, this value is approximately 1:8). Pharmacists assume a therapeutic range from 280th This would be a safe drug LSD. [33]" source: ↑ Zitiert aus: Robert M. Julien: Drogen und Psychopharmaka. Spektrum Verlag, 1997. Quelle: Gable, R.S. (1993): Toward a Comparative Overview of Dependence Potential and Acute Toxity of Psychoactive Substances Used Nonmedically. In: American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse. Bd. 19, S. 263?281.

    you can overdose LSD 999 times and you will not die. this means its a very save drug in medical use.

    also LSD is a proved medicine against alcoholism:
    "Studies in the 1950s, noted in the treatment of alcoholism with LSD, a success rate of 50 percent. [6] [7] The success rate of Alcoholics Anonymous is however only about 10%. [8] However, some LSD studies due to methodological criticized shortcomings and different groups had different results. In a 1998 article published the works were re-examined on the subject. It was concluded that the question of the efficacy of LSD in treating alcoholism is unanswered so far. [9] A 2012 meta-analysis confirmed the original published in the studies noted beneficial effect. [10] [11​​]"

    also its a proved medicine against Cluster headache! "↑ R. Andrew Sewell, John H. Halpern & Harrison G. Pope Jr: Response of cluster headache to psilocybin and LSD. In: Neurology. Bd. 66, 2006, S. 1920?1922, PMID 16801660 (PDF; 239 KB)"

    also its a proved medicine against cancer pain: "↑ Peter Gasser: LSD-unterst?tzte Psychotherapie bei Personen mit Angstsymptomatik in Verbindung mit fortgeschrittenen lebensbedrohenden Erkrankungen"

    and all these studies never ever result in a permanent psychotic episode

    I think the beer articles are quirky, and that they make the site more than just a linux hardware news/benchmark site and inject some personality into it. I enjoy the stream of articles being: review, review, news, benchmark, benchmark, latest mesa changes, random beer I found and enjoyed, review, news, benchmark.

    The ratio of beer-stuff to linux-stuff is very strongly in favour of linux-stuff, and as a widespread and legal drug (though that word has many other connotations), I don't think posting about its occasional consumption is problematic. Similarly, I wouldn't have a problem with posting about different coffees that he has found and enjoyed.

    I started drinking beer in 2007 when I registered this Phoronix account because I thought it was cool, and I wanted to be like my hero, Michael Larabel. But seriously...

    I'm also strongly against drug propaganda.
    Where is the drug propganda? Just posting a picture of the (one) beer you drank/enjoyed or even providing a review is not encouraging anyone to start drinking. I've never seen an alcohol ad or any claim on this site that alcohol is good for you. What do you see as "propaganda" (i.e. citation(s), please)?

    As someone who doesn't drink alcohol, I couldn't care less about Michael's beer pictures.

    maybe only Kakao chose the child instead of the beer ?
