21 is really way too late to begin teaching people about responsible drinking. I am sure this contributes to a lot of deaths due to alcohol poisoning. I don't think any of the kids I went to school with knew that you could die from drinking too much.

If they're like most 18 year olds they probably thought they were immune

hahaha i am and will always be laughing at the amricans and their laws. no booze till you 21? give me a break. i should be allowed to get farked up whenever the hell i please (well in reason). as long as people are taught early about how to do it resposible i see no problem with drinking at earlier ages. as it stands now they dont tell you anything about the dangers and make you wait until the old age of 21 but allow you to got to war at 18 to die for your country! hahaha. stupid americans.

If anyone wants to study me getting farked up I can do it for a lot less cash.
2001-07-19 09:28:53 AM  
I am available for doing research.
2001-07-19 09:38:11 AM

Go to any college and you can study this for free

That is a creepy B-Day card.

Man I am glad pot is still illegal, it was so much easier to get drugs than alcohol before I was 21. Come to think of it it still is.
I was part of a DEA student briefing as an intern in DC, these idiots kept harping about the evils of drugs. Then one of the students asked them what their opinion of alcohol and tobacco was. They responded like Frat guys on spring break with hoots and laughter "tastes great!" "less filling" was actually started by a few. I was embarrased for them. Binge drinking makes you stupid, pot just makes you sleepy. I'd rather nap then puke and die.

What's wrong with the youth of today? In my day we could handle our drugs.
2001-07-19 10:53:26 AM  
MrMe- laf, that was my same thought about the card. Yikes!

BTW- Are farkers now submitting articles under misleading headlines because they want to grab attention, or are they just too lazy to read the article before submitting? This is not a study on binge drinking, but on the effectivness of the anti-binge drinking campaign. Some of the commentors here clearly didn't read it either. C'mon people!

You tell 'em FM!

Let me start by stating that I haven't read the article yet but find the discussion amusing. Personally, I think young people should learn how to handle their drink and what happens when you overindulge under guidance of reliable adults. I was 11½ when I first had wine with dinner (one small glass, after that plains grape juice) and I know how much I can drink (too much) and what the effects are for just about any reasonable amount of any strength. Net result: I don't get drunk (is no fun) and I never have a hangover.

Yeah...stupid Americans that have a country that houses every freaking foreigner and their 8 kids and supports them and allows free speach and has cool stuff like FARK and is the place you want to live and....

Stupid us.


Stupid #1 country on the planet with the biggest baddest mother F-ers who you don't want none of. Period.

Fricken midget.

As for drinking? Just close one eye and put it on cruise control to hold your speed... oh...and keep your beer down low in your lap so that nobody can see it...and only take sips when no cars are around.

If you like hard liquor...I suggest a McDonalds type Pepsi cup with 1/2 Rum and 1/2 Coke. Nobody will ever know the truth.

....and is home to 'evil' corps like microsoft and is the country who's president is BUSH and also has more senseless laws than one can count(excluding afghanistan :P).....

need i say more? im sure there are a lot of people who would rather want to live in the USA rather than their country and that is fine by me. just dont go saying that 'America is the greatest blah blah blah...' because it sure as hell isnt.
2001-07-19 12:14:15 PM  
/me kicks self in ass

sorry guys.

You know, it's funny, I got into one of these stupid America sucks/America could kick your ass arguments a couple of weeks ago on fark, and it seems just as stupid now as it did when I was involved in it.

Something I've figured out - America, to an outsider looking in, sucks. And it sucks really big donkey balls. The reason? Because of moron Americans like Nutdip who constantly proclaim that America is number 1, and we don't want any of those badass american motherfarkers, yadda yadda yadda.

Something else I've noticed. Americans are intesely proud of their country, and take great offense when someone shiats on their way of life, mush as the asinine little Blah_ did. America happens to be one of the greatest places on this Earth to live - if you disagree with that fact, then you obviously haven't noticed that million upon millions of foreigners try to immigrate their each year. Flapping your gums about Bush is pointless - and jus tout of curiosity, who's the leader of your country? You don't have your home in your profile, but chances are the jackass you elected (if you elected him, and it's entirely possible you didn't) is no better than Bush, or Clinton, or any other American President. You're just bitter cause America is a hell of a lot more powerful than wherever you're from.

So for the love of God, would both sides just shut-the-hell up? Nobody wants to hear this idiotic crap anymore.

Again with the bullshiat headline!

You conveniently left out this part: "the effectiveness of its campaign against" binge drinking...

Get it farking right, will ya?
2001-07-19 01:03:11 PM  
Quite a comment from someone disinterested Matty. I can still kick your ass.
2001-07-19 01:03:43 PM  
This article is a farce. I know this because I've witnessed many a 21st birthday. My logic:

They're all too damn drunk to count to 24.
2001-07-19 01:05:01 PM  

Just come here, have fun...and shut up. Take a look at the planet from the moon. You will suddenly notice that there is one part you stand on, and another part you float in. Period.


2001-07-19 01:05:44 PM  
Now can we get back to drinking?
2001-07-19 01:45:15 PM  
are you saying that drinking can fix all our problems??

hehe just joking around. ok i have had enough of fighting off you americans, so let us all just be happy for the time being...

/me hands nutdip a beer
2001-07-19 02:44:08 PM  
Nutdip - what are you, 6 years old or something? "I can still kick your ass".

yeah, you're a farking genius. Enjoy life, you sad little person.

and thank god that most Americans aren't like you.
2001-07-19 02:51:12 PM  
hahaha---matty, there are far too many americans exactly like the character nutdip is portraying.
2001-07-19 03:40:21 PM  

The Trib's article's title reads "Grant awarded to study binge drinking". How is this misleading? I realize the article is about trying to prevent binge drinking, but the article is titled exactly the same as it is on the Fark title line.
2001-07-19 05:11:01 PM  
I think there are far too many pussys who don't put up a photo or where they are from in here. All talk.

Matty... I am not 6, but I bet I could have kicked your ass when I was 6 as well.
2001-07-20 10:52:13 AM  
I cannot BELIEVE that no-one here linked to the onion article that they have based this study on, you should be *ashamed*!
