    dcdoesnt this mean more like "_if_ that's true, then..." - ie based on preceding item.
    so your ex #4748 would be:
    If thats true, then we dont have time for a drink.
    bamboo4彼女らを should be 彼女らと. Also, "to drink a beer" should be "to drink beer." 
    ninja_kdc - I defer to native speakers on that one... in the book I got, the meaning was: Based on the preceding information, a new topic is brought forth. Which leads into the english of that means... cleaned things up a bit / fixed #4748... 
    jmadsena slightly different sense than dc's example,

    "if you follow those directions, then you will see it on your right"
