On the other hand, I don't really care: I don't like wine.

Right now, I'm drinking cider.
I'm also watching a re-run of "E.R.", which gives me a good list of what can kill you in the USA. Blizzards in Chicago are on my list.

The MANCOLD is currently kicking my ass pretty good.  It is feeling like it may be fatal at this point.

Yes, and they were important for Zinfandel wines too.
I like a good Zinfandel.

One's girlfriend?

(1) After a 51-year-old man was found dead in Everett, Wash., in January with his heavier girlfriend (192 pounds) lying face down on top of him, sheriff's deputies attributed cause of death as his having been smothered by the 50-year-old woman's breasts. Neighbors said they had heard the man screaming for the woman to get off of him.

Haha.  I remember a CSI episode like that from many years ago.  I think that the woman left the scene because she was too embarassed or something like that.

Although at least one earwitness said it sounded like, "Brrrr-rrrrr-rrrrr-..."

If I die prematurely, it will probably be behind the wheel of a car.  People drive with careless abandon these days.

Crap.  Well, forget visiting my friend in Atlanta then.



Nah you're good, cities don't count as "real south" amirite!?
Cept 'narlins, but that place is its own country.

Well, obviously there are some decent Californian wines.

Nah, we DO have a frighteningly large number of crazies here in the US, but they just are an annoyance and source of embarrassment. Little death causing though.

Our biggest killers are indeed cars, booze (esp when mixed) ciggs and fast food.
And I hear more places are getting obese by the day, as McD's grows in consumption. We're exporting our fat!!! Suck it.
