Re: Hypothetically would you fight god to save your soulmate

Kinda What Dreams May Come -ish. Yahweh's sense of ethics is extremely fucked up, so I'm more concerned with what my soul mate did with respect to my ethics. If it's all good, then, sure, I'll fight.

Ah. Well, 1-2 glasses a day (for men)(red wine) is recommended. So, while I occasionally drink more, there's a bit of space between "healthy amount" and "so much that it's causing you problems".
