I did not know this…
When you drink vodka over ice, it can give you kidney failure.

When you drink whiskey over ice, it can give you heart problems.

“Look, I’m not going to start criticising Ed Miliband. I won’t say a word against him. In fact, I admire him. Say what you like about his screamingly obvious failings both as a politician and as a man, but the fact remains that he did everything he could to overcome his absolutely monumental personal shortcomings, and for that I salute him. And anyway, it’s hardly his fault he looks and talks like that. It’s probably genetic or something, and it’s unkind to draw attention to it.
“In hard times for the party, it’s vital that we rise above any temptation to stab people in the back, however colossally hopeless they may be. We need to show loyalty, even to comically inept losers who have put us out of power for a generation. That’s why you’ll never hear me badmouthing the incompetent twit.”
On September 30, the Munich Agreement had been signed. Britain’s Prime Minister, Neville Chamberlain, had presented the agreement as “Peace for our time” — in exchange for allowing Germany to help itself to the German-speaking part of Czechoslovakia, later known as Sudetenland. Chamberlain and France’s Prime Minister, Édouard Daladier, had accepted Hitler’s conditions without even mentioning the fate of the Jews.
While stopping short of fully endorsing the Arab Peace Initiative, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that he welcomed the general idea behind it — a regional agreement between Israel and the moderate Arab states.
The Arab Peace Initiative, originally proposed by Saudi Arabia in 2002, has many problematic aspects to it, the prime minister said, such as its call for an Israeli withdrawal from the Golan Heights and the return of Palestinians refuges to Israel. “There are positive aspects and negative aspects to it,” he told Israeli diplomatic correspondents at a rare on-record briefing. “This initiative is 13 years old, and the situation in the Middle East has changed since it was first proposed. But the general idea — to try and reach understandings with leading Arab countries — is a good idea.”
“This is the first time in history that a foreign army has killed civilian Turks in peacetime!”
This is how government-friendly media justified Turkey’s reaction to Israel when, in May 2010, the Israel Defense Forces raided the “Mavi Marmara,” a ship in a Turkish-led flotilla off the Gazan coast, and killed nine pro-Palestine activists aboard.
Any reader could be tempted to believe that Turkey was preparing to go to war with Israel.
Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, then foreign minister, insisted that “This is Turkey’s own 9/11.”
