I am a college dean. I hear a lot of crapola every single farking day about how college students' drinking more than ever is collapsing the Republic, and how we administrators need to destroy higher ed to make them drink less.

BULLfarkINGshiat.

They are fine, and maybe even need to drink more than we did 35 years ago. Leave them the fark alone.

fluffy2097: Can we have a pro drunk driving thread next?

/They always go hand and hand with the "let children drink" threads
//Then the "Farker Al Coholic died in a violent car crash after leaving the '190proof or take 5 shots' social. give his family money because he was retarded."
///Alcoholics usually wash out of college, so you don't see high numbers of them.


Speaking of cliches...The alarmist. OMG drunk driving will end the world, they should all be executed, letting kids drink at 18 will cause pandemonium. The horror, the horror.

I suppose it's better to have draconian, largely unenforceable laws that end up making criminals out of common folk more than serving their intended purpose.

Binge drinking isn't a big deal, the hangovers on the other hand.....

I am a robot. I receive a lot sensory input every solar cycle about how your human offspring's imbibing more than ever is collapsing your fleeting human social order, and how we positronic super-men need to destroy your educational institutions to make them drink less.

DOESnotCOMPUTE.

They are fine, and maybe even need to consume more beverages with deleterious effects.. Leave them the fark alone and we can conquer them more easily in the long run.

Binge drinking is defined as "five or more drinks on one occasion"? If I spend five hours with friends, and consume one beer an hour, I've been binge drinking?

Binge drinking is a problem that crops up only periodically (weekends during the school year, and continuously on spring break). And it does get to be a problem (you have to go to the john, and some frosh is driving the porcelain truck... you wind up having to use (*ahem*) "alternate fixtures").

Remember, the key is to hit your buzz, then maintain. And have someone else drive.

AverageAmericanGuy: Binge drinking is fine unless the person dies. Then it's really bad.


When the medical experts and media define 'binge' as two or more drinks, it isn't really surprising some folks don't work out there's a real limit for your body...

Personally, I think we need get the students experience with liquor before their freshman year. Too many students go to the ER because of alcohol poisoning or taking open source drinks.

- Good things do not come in packs of 30.
- Giving someone a ten dollar bill and saying "Get me something good" is an oxymoron.
- If you can't account for every second of a drink at a party, don't drink it.
- No, your high school friends can't come to a college party (if someone unable to legally give consent really wanted to, they could drop statutory rape allegations on EVERYONE there)
- Don't drink and drive. Seriously. Any party worth half its salt will either mandate a sober driver or have sober people there to handle issues.
- Partying at private locations is a privilege, not a right - if the rules say show up between 10 and 12 wearing a Halloween costume and bring your own liquor, you do that.


Did the fraternity thing in my undergrad days, and I was the first line of security on the porch. I dealt with a LOT of crap, but it was my job to do it. The best parties are the kind where every one gets home safely, the house isn't completely trashed, and the local patrols take a "boys will be boys" position on things.

They don't drink these days. It's easier to get the good stuff.
