How often, Outliers wonders, did 007 slur his name?
James Bond, a man with a habit of repeating himself, drank the equivalent of 31 martinis a week, on average, according to well-read researchers in the light-hearted Christmas edition of the medical journal BMJ.
That amount—four times what an adult male should imbibe—does not include days when Bond was incarcerated or in a hospital. Even after taking those days into account, Bond consumed what would amount to 22 martinis a week. At his worst, in one day he consumed two bottles of wine, three vodka martinis, six pints of beer and a double, neat.
