James Bond is an Alcoholic
According to a new British study, James Bond is an alcoholic.
Researchers read all 14 of Ian Fleming’s Bond novels, and figured out that Bond drank an average of 92 drinks each week – or more than 13 each day – when he wasn’t incarcerated or hospitalized.
He drank the most in You Only Live Twice, downing nearly 226 drinks over the course of the novel – and the least in The Man with the Golden Gun, with just 41.5 drinks over the course of three days.
Considering the amount of alcohol Bond drank on a regular basis, he should not have had the ability to accurately fire a gun, defuse a bomb, or take care of his ladies in the bedroom.
He also should have been dead by the age of 56.
