Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower

It's my cousin's birthday party tonight.

It's cold outside.

I need to take Stepho's advice, and seasonally adjust my drinking.

WHat's the advice? Drink a lot more to feel warm, or avoid drinking because it lowers your body temperature? I vote fro drinking more, but in front of a giant fireplace.

Stepho said...

Kimber, I am for drinking more. If nothing else, merely because hot toddies are awesome.
