So if you take a picture of yourself with a Panasonic, people rate you good-looking?

Or are they rating the camera as good-looking?

Or it has to do with the socioeconomic class of those who purchase that model.

The micro is the sorta camera that could get me back into photography, especially if the yanked all the bells and whistles of a more Leica approach.

By that age you can pretty much tell who drank and who didn't. It shows on people's faces.

You can verify the truth of that assertion:

1. on yourself (not advisable - though I imagine everyone must have at least a rough idea about what "enough alcohol" means for himself; moreover, your memory might be impaired).

2. on other people (there's plenty of oportunity: for instance, last winter there was a drunk gentleman sleeping in a bus station; he could hardly be convinced to save his life - it took a struggle to get him on a bus, since it was freezing).

I'd argue that there are bigger problems with gentlemen freezing in bus stations, of which excessive drinking is merely a symptom or a palliative.
Anyways, as long as it doesn't make someone unable to function socially, no problem.

Excessive drinking is a big problem for people of all social extractions.
