It seems there has been a study in Britain by some medical researchers that James Bond 007, the British Secret Intelligence Agent is a lush. That his alcohol consumption is so huge that it would make him an alcoholic. Three researchers have deduced this after reading 12 novels of Ian Fleming's famous agent, saying that he drinks double the recommended British National Health Service's daily limits for alcohol consumption. They have even gone as far as to say that he should be dead from the amount he consumes daily.
Now this is all being reported in the British Medical Journals Christmas issue which has been known as being the issue of wacky news. Unfortunately, the researchers are actually taking this seriously. As they looked through their detailed notes on the books they discovered that in actual grams Bond is really killing his liver and other organs with his consumption of alcohol. They also looked at the way he is having his drinks made shaken not stirred. It seems the proper way to make a good martini is to be done with a wooden spoon and stirred not shaken. That it is possible that Bond has a tremor due to his drinking and that is why he shakes his martini's.
The researchers also noted that Bond's drinking increases around day three of his missions. They are saying that he is drinking possibly 14 vodka martini's in a 24 hour period.
Now all this is fine and dandy but Bond has been at his job for over 50 plus years. Each time he comes out on film he is always working at above average standards. Now anyone who has followed Bond over the years knows that some of his missions have been extreme to say the least. So some alcohol consumption would be recommended.
The last observation that really hits below the belt is that with all this alcohol consumption would come a certain amount of impotence. Now this is something that could not happen to 007. His prowess in the bedroom is legendary. So if this finding is true then it means the Bond must drink less and continue to stay in good physical shape. We cannot have anything happen to his bedroom activities. Some of the information for this article has come from a piece in the LA Times.
