Jack Daniels: Not Your Perfect China Love Match

Do not fall in love with Jack Daniels. Read this to learn why!

I got a big kick out of this image. While living in China after my first breakup with a Chinese woman I too was introduced to Jack Daniels and got to know him pretty well. I don't recommend Jack as a life mate, be you male or female, and here's why:

1. I never saw Jack out and about anywhere that he wasn't cozying up to everyone in the room that would give him a moment of their time. Sure, you could bring him home for a quiet evening alone, and enjoy a few warm nips together, but meet up in a bar with him and you quickly discovered he was just as intimate with dozens of other people as he was with you. Jack's a bit of a slut and definitely not a "one person kind of guy".

2. One day you spend the night out with Jack, and the entire evening is a raging success, with Jack's good company bringing out the very best in you and making you the life of the party. But the next night out he is just as likely to turn on you behind your back, and push you into making a complete ass of yourself. Jack can be a bit of a psycho that way, and if you're not careful he'll turn you into one too.

3. Jack makes a terrible guide, and over the course of a night in his company, you can become quite befuddled about where you are and even who you are with. Jack is constantly getting lost, and as a result on some occasions you will find yourself waking up in stange places, and often with company you might not normally keep.

4. Once you get to know Jack very well, he may occasionally have his moments, but he is actually quite a bore and rarely offers any new and enlightening insights. It all just becomes the same old same old. He never wants to do anything new, just hunker down and listen to himself talk.

Because of the above, I do not recommend Jack as a life companion, and if you choose to enjoy his company as a social aquaintance I suggest you do so on relatively rare occasions and in small doses.

On the other hand, having once started to date my now Chinese wife, who is a great life partner, I was quickly able to see through Jack and all his flaws. So I do recommend that you do spend some quality alone time on where you can meet and date a great Chinese woman if you're a guy, or a terrific Western guy if you're a woman of China, and you can kiss Jack Daniels goodbye.

Hi John,
I'm really glad you brought this up because many Chinese women don't understand completely.
I believe you are correct in not marrying Jackie D. or any alcoholic beverage.
Still, this little fellow, and his companions, can be a positive ally.
I suggest to All the old Chilo quote (via Aristotle, Terence ?) inscribed on the temple at Delphi, "Nothing in excess".
More recently "'Too much of anything is bad, but too much whiskey is just enough.''
Mark Twain. :D

Really, I don't know the source but, has been around for a long time.
This has proven well in my life.
I don't know about others but for me, a small shot (one ounce neat) can help to break through the wall of something that needs to be done.
Especially when you really don't want to do it,... weed whacking, yard mowing, tree trimming, whatever...
I have found two allies that are helpful in certain situations.
1. Glenlivet, 18 year old, single malt (one batch) scotch and,...
2. 100% blue agave tequila (silver).
#1 is good for special occasions.
#2 is good for daily activities. This is just what I have found.
Anyway, whatever it takes to keep you rolling,... do it !!
We All appreciate your efforts. :)
Later, most respected "Elfin Ears", :D

Well spoken, Gongji.

If the truth be known, in many ways I'm similar to you. I also have two liquid refreshments as follows that help me through certain challenges in life.

1. Full cream milk

2. Low fat milk.

When I'm feeling particularly decadent or rebellious, I tend to go for the full cream stuff. To hell with the atherosclerosis and fatty build-ups in my body!

But when I inevitably collapse down from my momentary highs to my normal mild-mannered self, then the low fat milk variety reigns supreme, as watery and insipid as it inherently tends to unfortunately be.

To summarise and perhaps give a guide to others as far as indulging the natural white fluid is concerned, let me say the following.

#1 full fat milk should be used for outrageous parties and special celebrations only. Maybe sneak a tiffle of it occasionally also when your partner isn't watching.

#2 low fat milk should be used for all other times. Life is often flavorless and boring, so why shouldn't your main drink be similarly likewise! (rofl)(coffee)(coffee)(coffee)(rofl)

@YinTingYu - I just want you to know I agreed with everything you said. Cheers mate (d)

@Barry1 - I just want you to know I don't agree with anything you said, but I laughed my ass off that you said it. Great stuff and solid proof that we may all differ, but it is only to a degree. (rofl)

@ JohnAbbot
Hi John,
Thanks for having agreement with me,.... sincere brother.

Hi B.
I liked your comparison.
Want to offer suggestion regarding dairy products.
Please be careful about these because, they may lower testosterone levels for a male.
I think a little bit from time to time is OK but, steady use may have some effects you might not want. Check into it.
Still, who doesn't like a little bit of good, rich, homemade ice cream on occasion?
The "triple European" butter has been (if any) my "downfall".
These simple things are what gives some pleasure to this life.

Nice of you both to return a comment.
Peace to All,...

"I just want you to know I don't agree with anything you said..."

No big surprises here, John.

If I had a dollar for every time you'd agreed with what I'd written, I'd be a lonely pauper. ;(

Conversely, if I had a buck for every time you'd DISAGREED with me, I'd be a mighty rich and happy dancing dude! 8)(beer)(dance)

"Want to offer suggestion regarding dairy products. Please be careful about these because, they may lower testosterone levels for a male."

Thanks for the info re milk and hormone levels, Gongji. This intrigued me a little, so perusal through a few websites discussing milk in particular proved interesting.

Some sites suggested milk was good for aiding the building of muscle mass. Yet other sites suggested milk had potentially more subtle yet important effects on adults.

Here's an excerpt from one of the sites:

"The adult male participants had significantly increased blood levels of all female hormones including estrogen and progesterone as well a sharp decline in serum testosterone. All the adults in the study as well as the children had increased levels of estrogen and progesterone and a suppression of their body’s own hormonal regulation of these same hormones.

According to the researchers, the levels of hormones could be especially problematic for children by delaying sexual maturation in young boys and increasing it in young girls. In addition, as discussed by the researchers, adults could theoretically see increased risk for hormone sensitive cancers including breast and prostate cancer. The lowered testosterone seen in men in this study raises a counterargument to the common belief that milk helps increase testosterone and improve body composition.

The integrative medical community has had questions about milk intake for sometime. Milk is no longer processed the same way it once was. Selective breeding of dairy cattle, the use of drugs and hormones to generate greater milk yield per cow, issues with pasteurization and others have altered the quality of milk and raise questions about how healthy it really is for human consumption."

Food for thought, for sure. Modern day milk isn't the same good ol' stuff as it once was, it seems. What a shame.

I may switch from dairy milk to skim milk powder. Hopefully this'll resolve many of the issues currently swirling around the drinking of fresh milk. At least I hope so!

Thanks again for the heads up on this interesting issue, Gongji. (y)

@Barry1 - Barry, Barry, Barry, what can I say? You constantly tell us how you never feel insulted by any comment because you've achieved your goal by getting someone interested enough to comment. Now you are in almost in tears because I disagree with you here? I am shocked.

Why it is almost... dare I say it? It is almost like... Damnit Barry, it is almost like crying over a little spilled milk! (rofl)

Really though, I am lactose intolerant and don't really like milk, so how could I agree with you? Am I supposed to agree even when I don't agree?

I think that if you went through all the comments I have made on your blogs or any other places over the course of your time with us, you would find that the times I agree with you outweigh the times I disagree close to 10 to 1. Pretty much the same as with anybody else.

You're just stung this time because you love your milk so much and you can't stand anyone offending her. It must be awful to have to be told by Gongji or @YinTingYu that your beloved milk is secretly and slowly turning you into a girl. (doh) I don't understand why you aren't upset with him more so than me.

Thank you for your most amusing comments, John. You really did put a smile on my face. I've always known you had a great sense of humour and you've proved this yet again - bravo, I say! (beer):D
