Humans in general have a thing for alcohol. Drinking alcohol has been a part of the human experience for essentially as long as there have been humans. But why do humans like alcohol so much? The answer could go all the way back to evolution and what’s known as the drunken monkey hypothesis.
Medical marijuana is already a fact of life in 25 states and D.C., but why limit pain-relieving ganja to humans? Some pet owners think that their furry companions deserve to get in on the action, too, which led ”The New York Times” to give the latest animal ownership trend a catchy name everyone can get behind: […]
It’s impossible to tell the story of human history without talking about alcohol. Alcohol helped shape America and can be a tribute to the dead.
