Case In A Day - My daily remembered record is 36 beers, 4 shots, two mixed drinks, and 6 glasses of wine before having to stumble home, stupid sunrise.

Run The Taps At A Bar... Yup, couple a bars, couple a times. The best was Victorias in Salida CO. I was the last person to leave because I was in the third person and thought I was being left behind.

Century Club - Twice consecutively, while on shrooms, and a couple of other times.

Brew Your Own Beer - And it was amazing.

Pub Crawl-Or as I like to call it, friday

Go To An AA Meeting - only by court order

Learn Something About Wine - brewed it, go to the wineries across the street all the damn time

Black Out Before Noon - My current record is 4 blackouts in one day. Mathematically, two of them were before noon.

Oktoberfest in Germany - Negatory, although I would love to.

Scotch - mmmm Scotch.

\Tomorrow is my 22nd birthday!

redmid17:

When I drink a lot, I tend to stay out drinking very late...like 4 AM kind of late. When you have to be at work at 8, that doesn't cut it. I'd prefer not to get a DUI on the way to work during rush hour.


Sorry 4 AM is only very late when you have to go to work at 8 AM. should have written that better

I have to beg to differ with the author on that one.

Case In A Day - check. Xmas 2001. Case of Stroghs.

Run The Taps At A Bar... - Never thought of it. I'm trying this..

Century Club - Can you do 10 shots real fast every 9 mins?

Brew Your Own Beer - check

Pub Crawl - Not a frat boy, never was.

Go To An AA Meeting - Work closely with an AA attendee. Close enough.

Learn Something About Wine - Been to many vineyards. Makes no difference. Indiana is as good as Napa valley, just not as prolific.

Black Out Before Noon - Only a few times.

Oktoberfest in Germany - Why the hell would I want some German girl puking in my mouth?

Scotch - I'm partial to Talisker 17 year..

Mauvais Voisin: The FULL century club should have been on there -- 100 beers in 100 hours. That takes some planning to accomplish, especially if you actually have a job.

Edward 40-Hands using Steel Reserve was a pretty big challenge too. The hardest part? You can't take either bottle off until they're both finished. Makes using the restroom real challenging.


I did 100 beers in 3 days this April and have the receipts to prove it. Hooray E-days. I will admit I was purty FUBARed the whole time though.

Edward 40hands though... I remember waking up in a pile of vomit, covered in duct tape and broken glass, and going to the zoo. At 7:00am. Not my finest hour.

I have done 37 out of 40. Managed to stay out of the drunk tank. Didn't get drunk with Dad (he had quit drinking by that point) and haven't gotten plaster in the land of my forefathers.

I used to win bar bets with Everclear. The trick is make sure you have eaten before you get to the bar. That slows the alcohol enough to survive.

I recommend intense but short bursts of drinking... like coming home and having three gin & tonics and two margaritas. Then having dinner an hour later. It works pretty well.

My group of friends also did a triple shot of Jack at midnight on your 30th birthday. Had to do it in one shot, too, no sipping. I thought it would be a piece of cake until I drank it. Oh, the burn. Also forgot to pace myself earlier in anticipation. I functioned for about 45 minutes, that was it.

I never understood drinking games like Quarters. The object of the game is to make OTHER people drink? Meanwhile, my cupfull of beer is just sitting there getting warm?
I always just bounced the quarter off onto the floor and drank up.
I came to drink, not watch you drink.

I completed that entire list before I was 24. He seems to have left out any of the challenging negative achievements, including:

1) Go to work still drunk and don't get fired.
2) Take liquid poops for a week and still refuse to eat solid food.
3) Rupture a sinus from vomiting.
4) Get arrested for DUI but not convicted because it was the morning after and the BAC wasn't high enough.
5) Get an AIDS/HIV test because you cannot remember which of the 4 sleeping naked skanks you were amorous with the night before. You must test clean for this task to count.
6) Successfully negotiate "period sex" with a woman.
7) Drunk knock a door repeatedly while insisting that the woman who is in the apartment is your ex-girlfriend. Bonus points if you are pantsless when the police come.
8) Wreck a bicycle into a Starbucks/CVS/other establishment while riding your "safe" ride home.
9) Get a credit card statement with 80% of the charges unremembered by you, your friends, or the bartender.
10) Get invited to keep drinking while the bartender cleans up after the bar is closed.

I wouldn't give this list too much weight, anyway. A case in a day is easily attainable if you start early and work at it, and the Century Club only trips up people who don't like beer or swallow too much air while doing shots. In my day, the biggest challenge for the Century Club was the stipulation that you couldn't pee until you finished. Most people could actually drink the beer but they couldn't wait out the 100 minutes.

Why?

Because if I failed, I'd have to dump the rest on my head.


Son, I've probably been more shiathoused more severely and more times than you in my life, but even at my worst I was capable of understanding that pouring puke on my head is infinitely better than drinking it.
 
2008-06-19 11:55:05 PM
The hardest part of Century Club is all the foam. Make sure to get a good belch between each shot and you'll be fine. You will, however, get pretty thoroughly hammered.

The case in a day seems more intriguing to me. I'll pencil it in for Sunday.

Case In A Day - floating down the Guadalupe river check.... And Chilifest...check....And because my buddy and I decided to.....check.

Run The Taps At A Bar- No, but I'll change that next week. (though I'm doing the beer tour at a local bar. About 75 different beers, mark off a little card with every beer you've had. Very few American beers on there still working on it)

Century Club - A Double power hour before a party. 120 shots. That was PAIN.

Brew Your Own Beer - Not yet

Pub Crawl - 21st birthday. Northgate in CS. And then every other weekend since. Check, Check, sideways eight check.

Go To An AA Meeting - check

Learn Something About Wine - Nope. Hate wine.

Black Out Before Noon - check

Oktoberfest in Germany - Does going when you're 14 and can't drink count?

Tillmaster: Good grief - there are far better ways to enjoy alcohol.

1. Visit an scruffy little independent English pub, and drink a pint of Real Ale (preferably Mild)
2. Drink a pint of Heavy in a Glasgow dive
3. Compare an Islay malt with one from Speyside. Take your time - no hurry
4. Quaff a nice glass of Douro, in its native surroundings.
5. Try a glass of Mersault - pre 2000
6. Sip a glass of 1976 Riesling, preferably Beerenauslese or better. Goes well with pudding.
7. Sample virtually any 2005 French or German vintage, then store away as many cases as you can afford, for the unlikely event that you live long enough to enjoy them. Try to wait long enough.

Wine and beer - sublime.
Excess - stupidity

Century Club - done it a couple of time, but wouldn't recommend

Brew Your Own Beer - yes

Pub Crawl - i've got about 6 of these t-shirts, but it's pretty much a given when I go out and home with the buddies.

Go To An AA Meeting - not had this one yet

Learn Something About Wine - did a couple of wine tours in france sober. Would have been more fun drunk

Black Out Before Noon - At IU, this is what people do before the football games. We don't even go in, just tailgate.

Oktoberfest in Germany - I've lived 7 months in Germany drinking most of the time and gotten hammered in Munich, just the wrong time of year.

Scotch Bourbon - check (really not a scotch fan, but how many 22 year olds are?)

From the Top 40 list:

1.) Open and close a bar - pretty fun, standard
2.) Go on a bender - once again standard
3.) Drink a fifth of hard liquor, by yourself, in one day - can do it, but haven't in awhile
5.) Spend a night in the drunk tank - NOT WORTH IT
8.) Embark on an impromptu road trip - WORTH IT
10.) Extravagantly overtip a bartender - WORTH IT AT THE TIME
15.) Get carried home by your drinking buddies - been there and helped buddies home too
17.) Fight a good fight - worth it if you can get away
18.) Visit the source of your favorite beer, wine or liquor - mmm jim beam and guinness (not together)
19.) Drunkenly watch the sun come up with your best boozing buddies and a bottle - worth it
22.) Try at least one hundred different drinks - if I haven't, I'd be surprised
23.) Get loaded in the land of your forefathers - The Great part about being american, we're all mutts. I've hit up France, Germany, Ireland, and England!
26.) Give a hobo twenty bucks - 20 bucks worth of Taco Bell, but that was probably against the Geneva convention
32.) Learn at least one traditional drinking song - Du, Du liegst mir im Herzen...
33.) Steal some booze - duh
36.) Try absinthe - exaggerated effects, but it will get you d-runk

Ron Paul Revere: I liked your profile. I really like people who take care of abandoned animals.

Thanks. I have to update it. Coont cat has been gone for months and I doubt she's coming back.

We have a 10 year old cat coming this weekend because someone dumped him at the local vet over a bill for an eye infection. We are friends with the vet and she asked us to take the cat because it's otherwise healthy. What I don't get is that the bill was $105. Who dumps a pet of 10 years for $105? The vet even offered a payment plan, but the owner wouldn't hear of it. He wanted to put the cat to sleep. When he found out it would cost $75 to put the cat down, he just left.

I don't live in an area where people worship their pets, but I do figure if you go to the trouble of taking your pet to the vet that you have some vested interest or at the very least you would expect to spend some money.

Anyway, we're going to foster this one and get him on the local adoption circuit once the eye thing clears up. If there are no takers, then he gets to roam around with the rest of them. It's not a bad life for a cat. The cat/mouse ratio around here is still 15:1 in favor of the mice and the cats are getting lazy because it's summer and it's hot. I can tell because the kill pile has a lot of snakes - the snakes seek out cool areas to rest. So do the cats.

Considering I go to an in-state school, took out my own loans, and have worked damn near every moment since I graduated high school, go suck a long one my friend. The only time I didn't work was when I was in Germany, and that was because I couldn't get a job. Not that I tried too hard to work because I had enough money saved up.

Fortunately, I don't think most people at that party caught on to what happened. Besides, there was a great deal of peer pressure not to wuss out and dump the beer on my head if I didn't finish it.

BTW...great profile. We recently lost our family cat of 15 years to thyroid cancer. She had to be put down earlier this month when she took a turn for the worse. :-(

I must be missing something about what is so difficult about drinking a case in a day. That only averages out to 1 beer/hour, which is barely enough to give you a buzz (assuming you stick to that pace). The hardest thing about that would just be staying awake for 24 consecutive hours. Hell, even 24 beers in 12 hours isn't that tough.

36.) Try absinthe - exaggerated effects, but it will get you d-runk

/I'm only 22 and in college
//not an alcoholic yet

you forgot rich & spoiled

Considering I go to an in-state school, took out my own loans, and have worked damn near every moment since I graduated high school, go suck a long one my friend. The only time I didn't work was when I was in Germany, and that was because I couldn't get a job. Not that I tried too hard to work because I had enough money saved up.


Sure, sure, but I like doing things first and you've made it clear the sucking long ones is all yours.

Pissa!

AModicumGeeky: I need a good blend and a good single malt (scotches) to drink so I can evaluate the differences.

I second the Talisker-Very harsh and smokey. Great whisky.

For a blend-Son, if you get started on the single malt, all the blends start to taste like rotgut swill after a biatchivas, Walker...cutty sark's all right, and a bit cheaper.

Single malts: Pick a good one from each distillery area, if you can find it.

Speyside: The Glenlivit, Glenfiddich are the biggest ones from here. Aberlour is also excellent, as is The Macallan.

Highland (My favorites) An Cnoc is excellent. (I actually had this my very first time in the Highlands. We stopped just past the official border for the highlands, went into a peat bog near the road and passed a bottle of this around for a few swigs each.) Old Pultney is the Northernmost mainland distillery in Scotland, and very good.

Island (Subset of highland)Talisker, Arran...any of them, there aren't many.

Islay (Different from Island) Ardbeg, Laphroaig (Peatiest whisky I think I've ever had.)

Lowlands: I think that what there is there is mostly used in blends. I don't know of any single malts.

Campbeltown: Springbank Single Malt.

Don't get anything below ten years old, but get at least one ten to contrast. Unless you like your whisky with a distinct taste of wood, don't go above 15. Try the with a wee drop of water, or without. WHATEVER you do, do NOT EVER mix it with anything but spring water. A friend of mine tried to order a Glenfiddich with coke at this little pub in the highlands, and they refused to serve him. They take it realllllly seriously up there)

After that (sorry this is dragging on) just try different ones. Whisky varies widely from place to place.
