Everyone has heard of “whiskey muscles”. It is that sensation of invincibility that comes when one drinks a bunch of alcohol. It is why men always fight when they drink. It is also why many men get their asses kicked. They think they are tougher or stronger than they really are. Maybe it has something to do with the loss of inhibition in the frontal lobe. Who knows? The term has been thrown around all my life but as far as I know, has never been proven…until now. In England, Chris Bailey, 28, decided to go for a workout Saturday after going out drinking with his landlord until 3 a.m. Landlord Oliver Steel, on the other hand, went to bed. The next day he found Chris on the bench with the bar across his chest. It was too late. He was dead.
All this proves that not only does Whiskey Muscle Syndrome does exist but also that having it almost always gets you hurt.
