: : : : Why are drinking sprees called benders? Thanks!

: : : From the act of bending ones arm to down drinks?

: : From the perception that time bends and loses its linear nature after drinking for days at a time. It's life Jim, but not as we know it.

: Oxmyx: Nobody helps nobody but himself.
: Spock: Sir, you are employing a double negative.
