This Is the Worst Alcoholic Drink for Your Body, Say Experts

So, you plan to knock back a few drinks as you say "goodbye" to 2020?  Well, if you're looking to do the least amount of damage to your body, and even reduce the likelihood of a major hangover, health experts say you should stay away from mixed drinks.


Leslie Bonci, the sports dietician for the Kansas City Chiefs said, "Mixed drink are more problematic. They have more alcohol in them, the mixers will drive up the calories, and... we know that the new guidelines are one drink-a-day for women and two for men. Several mixed drinks contain the equivalent of five shots of alcohol, which is the equivalent of five drinks."


The absolute worst mixed drink to avoid?  The Pina Colada. To put it in perspective; a Pina Colada has around 650 calories.  A McDonald's Big Mac has less than that at only 576 calories!  One eight-ounce serving has 40 grams of sugar!


Two other mixed drinks high in calories and sugars?  The margarita and the Long Island iced tea.

EDDIE VAN HALEN Honored With 'Lifetime Achievement Award' By 'The National Guitar Museum'

This seems like a pretty easy choice.


The National Guitar Museum picked Eddie Van Halen as the recipient of its "Lifetime Achievement Award".


Normally, it's given to a living guitarist who has contributed to the legacy of guitar -- but this year they made an exception for Van Halen, who passed away in October.


The National Guitar Museum said, "It is perhaps fitting that we don't need to explain why Eddie is deserving of such an honor. Everyone who has ever heard his guitar playing knows."


Rolling Stone magazine ranked Eddie Van Halen No. 8 on its list of the 100 greatest guitarists of all-time.

Christopher Walken has Never Owned A Cellphone or Computer

Christopher Walken has been in plenty of viral videos, but the actor admitted to Stephen Colbert that he's never owned a cellphone or a computer.


In order to come onto The Late Show via Zoom, Walken confessed: "Somebody had to come and set this up because I don't have a cellphone or a computer."


When Colbert asked the actor if he had a moral objection to technology, Walken replied: "No, no.  I just got to it too late. I think I'm right at a certain age where it just passed me by. And I never got involved in it because it would be strange to have any 10-year-old be much better at it than I am."


Walken added that a phone is provided to him when he's making a film, but it's mainly, "so they can find me."
