I don't get it. What's the point of drinking if you're just going to torture yourself in immature games like this?

Participants can get revenge on judges at the end (often by urinating on them).

/Hey dude, want to judge a drinking contest?

Did someone say Oktoberfest? I'll start

Please note that they disgusted the Germans. Not all Germans, but still.

GROSS

"But German Nils Honerla, who studied in New Zealand in 2002, said the Kiwis' behaviour was "animal-like". The event was disgusting and typical of New Zealand drinking culture, he said. "I have never seen something comparable here"

This from a country where it's legal to have sex with animals

"Hey, let's start a fun drinking trip!"
"Yeah!"
"You have to drink 35 mL of beer every minute for 100 minute!"
"Yeah!!"
"And you can't wear any underwear!"
"Um, sure!"
"And if you puke or piss, you have to collect it in an old boot and drink it!"
"......."

Sounds like most of the quarters games we used to play back in the day.

I find it amusing that the Germans, world reknown for hardcore scat and fetish porn would have a problem with this...
 
2010-10-10 01:48:14 AM
Never understood the idea of drinking until you puke. It's just wasting good alcohol. And in a group? So now a bunch of people are wasting a lot of good alcohol. Well, when your gene pool has more than it's fair share of Arapawas in the mix, I guess this is to be expected

If a player vomits or urinates they have to drink it, or get someone else to, through a funnel or muddy gumboot.

Um, translation, please?

Wow, this is just... GAHHHH, it's horrible.

"Typical of New Zealand drinking culture," ouch.

Muddy gumboot can hardly help, whatever it is.
 
2010-10-10 01:53:50 AM
Wait, hang on, that's 3500ml or equivalent to 10 tinnies in just over an hour and a half.

...or 'a good start' as they would call it in NZ.

Since the participants are habitual overdrinkers I really doubt that much booze has much of an impact on any of them. At the very least they're unlikely to be puking and pissing themselves after that much.

As someone who lived in New Zealand, I totally understand why the Germans would be disgusted. Kiwis and Australians are the worst drunks in the world. They drink to emphasize quantity, not quality.

Gumboot = tall rubber boot. For mud.

Pfff. Everything is quality after 15 of them.

Dude...you drink over three liters of liquid, you're going to have to piss like crazy. That's not even taking into account the diuretic properties of alcohol.

sunbird: Sounds like Courtney Place on a usual Friday or Saturday night.

I've never seen any piss drinking on Courtney Place, unless you count Tui. That being said, this story wasn't surprising. I especially liked the rulebook they conveniently provided. "Meth is a dangerous problem, and btw, here's a recipe..."

Especially when you consider that their "boot" is our "trunk." Lots of levels, there.

Ive done 100oz of beer in 100 min before. Didnt have to drink piss tho, and nobody vomited. Its not that much... 8 beers in a little over an hour and a half. Hell, i think we did that for pregame a few times.
 
2010-10-10 02:07:58 AM
Sounds like a few people being ridiculous at Oktoberfest.

In the meantime, the New Zealanders have perfected a serious white wine that I think is exalting (new window).

And urine.


The urine goes inside (helps fight tinea), the mud outside. It's one of the few distinctions the sort of person who wears gumboots makes. Even then it's just a vague guideline.

Tim Russell, of Napier, who has been involved in Van Tour and 100 Club for the past three years, said it was an unorganised drinking trip around Europe for three months which ended at the beer festival.

"It involves drinking every night with a bit of sight-seeing thrown in during the day," he said.


That part sounds awesome.

Diarrhea Anne Frank: The urine goes inside (helps fight tinea), the mud outside. It's one of the few distinctions the sort of person who wears gumboots makes. Even then it's just a vague guideline.

Is it like a layer of urine? Right now what I'm seeing is a plastic bag lining the inside that one could seal, thus locking in the urine with the intention of distributing its effects evenly about the foot, ankle and lower calf. Or maybe that would just be a feature of more upscale muddy gumboots.

Then again, perhaps I am overthinking this.

I'm a New Zealander, so I'm really getting a kick out of these replies throwing up in a gumboot so I can have a drink later.

The fact is we are pretty immature when it comes to drinking - much like the rest of the Anglophone world, for some reason. I'm 31 and I managed to survive my 20s without throwing up, passing out or pissing myself due to drinking too much. Apparently I'm a rarity and some think I wasted my youth.

Not really much of a surprise when this (new window) is considered an iconic Kiwi tune

I would call it more of a miasma of urine. At the end of the day you tip it out on one of your favourite sheep, and then you keep your gumboots by your bed for the night. Which is convenient.

And yeah, new high-tech variants have all sorts of pee-distribution features. The main thing is that 24 hours of piss = healthy feet, healthy mind.

As a side benefit, they'd also have a complex, pungent aromatic texture, the kind of scent you'd look for in your bedroom if you were a fall-down drunk thoroughly at home being saturated in your own motley secretions.

The behaviour happened during Oktoberfest in Munich, which finished this week.

They make it sound like it was some kind of discrete incident; "the behavior", like "the accident" or "the sex act." Do they mean there was some kind of "contest", or was there a whole set of people all doing the same thing at the same time, sort of some Kiwi chorus line of urine drinking?

Well, that's true. You have cut through my pukey boot and gotten to the sensitive sole within :(

I immediately imagined a urinating kickline.

I really need to lay off the drink myself.

I've heard that the gumboots are really for facilitating easy coitus with sheep by inserting the sheep's hind legs into the boots along with your feet to keep them from easily escaping.

Makes perfect sense to me.

I used to be pretty hardcore with my drinking and I'd let people know it; but these guys are in a league of their own.....yet still, despite clearly being outclassed, I don't really feel the need to hang my head in shame over this one.

It's cool. I'm not a teetotaller. There's a social aspect to drinking I enjoy, but I don't really see the point of going that far. I have had some wicked hangovers, but in general I've managed to pace myself well enough in my drinking behaviour,
