LIQUID DIPLOMACY

According to the World Health Organization, the world drank the equivalent of 6.1 litres of pure alcohol per person in 2005. At least there's one thing wherein I'm above average.

But like the difference between your sister-in-law Stacy and your third-cousin Earl, everyone has a different pace. Russia and most of Europe can drink most North Africans under the table. According to The Economist, "Moldovans are the most bibulous, getting through 18.2 litres each, nearly 2 litres more than the Czechs in second place. Over 10 litres of a Moldovan's annual intake is reckoned to be 'unrecorded' home-brewed liquor, making it particularly harmful to health."

Wow, we Americans need to step up our game.
