Hmm. I guess I'm not "normal" after all. I drink more than about 70% of Americans.

The normal American basically doesn't drink.

I had to look at that chart for a minute because it looked like it was saying: "people who drink more than other people drink more than the people who drink less than them."

Today I learned what "decile" means.

Jeez, I have one glass of wine every two months and I'm nearly at the 50th percentile? Baloney. Unless they're counting children, I suspect the question was phrased poorly. Ask me how many drinks I have per week, and my instinctive answer is zero. But in reality it's .12 drinks per week.

I think this is how you show deciles on a bar chart:

Americans are pretty big liars as well.

I don't know about that, half the people I know rarely drink unless there's a party, and a couple never drink. Some weeks I'll have a drink every evening (just 1 but 3 oz 190 proof), but some weeks nothing at all.

Nonsense, it's yummy. You can't drink it straight, not you shouldn't, you can't because your throat will slam shut. PA State Liquor stores only have the 150, I have to go to Jersey for the 190. Also in Jersey they have Clear Spring 190 in plastic bottles which are much easier to handle than the glass Everclears.
The calories are a surprise, maybe that's why I've gained 20 lbs in 2 months, I thought I was getting ready to hibernate.

So how would I know I have a hangover if things seem normal?

There are very few stories that haven't been told, in one form or another.
