DailyDirt: Uses For Wine (Besides Drinking It)

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Drinking wine on special occasions is a popular tradition all over the world, but it seems like more people would like some other excuses for drinking wine, too. Red wine had gotten a lot of publicity for various health benefits, but if you want to drink some wine, maybe you should be asking yourself why you need so many different reasons. Here are just a few interesting links about wine to go with your favorite beverage. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    a 150lb human would have to drink 700 4-ounce glasses of red wine a day


    700 x 4 ouces = 2,800 ounces
    2,800 ounces = 82805.9 mL
    The average bottle of wine is 750mL, so your talking about 110 1/2 bottles of wine, or about a 1/2 barrel of aged wine.

    I see your challenge...

    My personal wine discovery

    I don't care much for wine, but since I acquired a slow cooker, I've found a reason to have Bordeaux:

    Fry up some bacon then cubes of beef. Put 'em in the crock pot. Add a good bit of wine, some mustard, pepper, garlic cloves (more is better) and lots of fresh mushrooms. Some carrot and tiny onions would be good, too. Cook it all for eight hours on low heat. Indescribably delicious.

    So, can you still eat the wine dress?

    Resveratrol

    Since it’s only found in red wine, not white, it must come from the grape skins.

    So why not just get it by eating grapes? They’re cheaper than wine, and dare I say it, tastier, too.

    A cop stops a car and finds the driver is a Catholic priest. After seeing the priest's license he asks, "What have you had to drink today, Father?"
    The priest replies, "Just water".
    The cop says, "Then why do I smell wine on your breath?".
    "Well, son-of-a-gun!", the priest exclaims. "He's done it again!".
