    Milwaukee - Drunkest City in America!


    http://www.forbes.com/entrepreneurs/...0822intro.html

    Milwaukee ranks high for its drinking habits across the board. According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Survey 2004, more than 70% of adult Milwaukeeans reported that they had had at least one alcoholic drink within the past 30 days--the highest percentage on our list. Twenty-two percent of Milwaukee respondents confessed to binge drinking, or having five or more drinks on one occasion--also the highest on our list. And 7.5% of the population were reported as heavy drinkers--adult men that have more than two drinks per day, or adult women who have more than one drink per day.
    Insert joke here.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    The mayor said this morning on the 'Today' in NY Show that he's trying to stop this image by passing tougher drinking/driving laws. Good luck to that with the brewery right in town!

    I'm proud to say that my state capital is #3 on the list.

    I'm not sure what's going on in the great white north of our country, but Columbus, Boston and Austin are crawling with college students and I'm sure that skews the numbers somewhat.

    So, what's the excuse up in WI and MN.
    I assume those GB fans have to drink just because WI is much more easy to tolerate when you're drunk and the fine folks in MN are just trying to take over the top spot on the general principal on not wanting WI to be #1.

    #2??? That's just not good enough people. You people who live in the Twin Cities need to pull your weight; it's unacceptable to ever come in second to WI. Start drinking friends.
