OK, we get it, there's a big storm coming. Sheesh, the Floridians have gotta be wondering what the big deal is by this point...

I had a Hurricane once in N'Awlins, it was like Kool-Aid with cheap strong alcohol. It's fine to get blind drunk on, but I'm not a teenager in college anymore.

Got some beer and white wine for when the power is still on and three bottles of red wines for when the power goes down. We're set.

They're dealing with this storm like a bunch of disinterested hipsters. Don't they know they're supposed to be panicking? I'd like to see how New Yorkers would behave if a real crisis hit manhattan.

I start with puncheon rum; at 75% alc., a hurricane and earthquake could hit and you wouldn't feel much.

If I'm going to be washed or blown away in a storm, the last thing I'll drink is a pink, fruity-tuity mocktail.

Gimmie a Rogue's Dead Guy Ale, man!

Regardless of the hurricane, why bother being sober.

I rode out a hurricane with a girl one year in her apartment getting totally blitzed on Hurricanes and doing a number of naughty things. Hard to think of a better way to spend it...

I already survived Sandy. Was in Jamaica. Had a Hurricane party in the pool. Yes, booze helps fight the boredom immensely. Looks like she has gotten a bit more angry in the past few days though.

Damn , Sandy sank the HMS Bounty.

Random Anonymous Blackmail: Regardless of the hurricane, why bother being sober.


correct. hurricanes can't actually be tolerated sober.

/ survived isaac on bourbon, sazaracs, and last words (gin, lime, chartreuse, and something else)
// once we ran out of ice, it was just bourbon
/// it's fun to be forced to take the time to make a drink by candlelight. the mode of hurricane survival is slow movements. you want everything to take as long as possible, this keeps you cool and helps pass the time.

I was out doing some normal shopping today and I saw people stocking up on liquor and toilet paper.

Are people really expecting it will be so bad they shiat themselves?

Well, yeah. Is this thing even still a hurricane? Last time I checked the Weather Channel, there were still kids and puppies frolicking on the Jersey Shore, and old ladies sitting on benches at the Boardwalk.

This picture reminds me, I found a couple packages of unopened beef jerky in my house that are like two years old. Safe to eat? I couldn't find any kind of expiration date on them, and it still basically looks like beef jerky...

I love watching CNN trying to find images that match their hyperbole. All their calls of impending disaster and it's just turning out to be massive inconvenience.

Riding out a hurricane...if you're not drunk, you're not doing it right

oh yeah, and since y'all are probably unaccustomed to hurricanes fill up the bathtub with water.

this is not for drinking. this is for the toilet. it is common to lose water during a hurricane, which means you lose the ability to flush. however, if you fill the bathtub, you can take the water from the bathtub to fill the reservoir over the toilet so that it can flush.

I prefer hand grenades to hurricanes, but I get lazier the drunker I get. After 5-6 drinks/beers/whatever, I am probably just making a simple drink.

Obvious tag too drunk to show up?
 
2012-10-29 05:25:02 PM  
Drinking said Hurricaine in New Orleans at Patty O'Briens. I was a happy playful drunk. Stumbled back to my hotel and went to bed. Woke up for meeting still drunk. Worst hangover of my life. Threw out the souvenir glass due to the company I was with. Wish I had that glass as a mark of pride now.

If it doesn't smell bad eat a small piece. If it doesn't taste spoiled it should be good to eat.

Toilet paper will be one of the first things to go when society collapses. Sure, you could trade batteries so people can listen to the radio which isn't broadcasting or get another 3 hours of light out of a lamp, but everyone knows that having a storeroom full of triple ply extra soft paper will make sure you are set for life (which will be short because someone will kill you for it).

Sibling #2 lives on the Florida panhandle. When a storm is expected to hit, my call will inevitably disrupt a party.

I once roomed with a group of people that were quicker to steal toilet paper than food. No matter where I tried to hide a few rolls, they hunted them out. Other than stealing my food, stealing my toilet paper, reading my diary aloud and wearing my underwear on their heads, they were pretty decent roommates though.

not the best advice. the bacteria that grows on food that is dangerous (salmonella, e coli, and something that starts with an "L") has no taste or smell. the bacteria that makes food stink is actually not very dangerous (like mold on bread, totally harmless if eaten).

but, beef jerky, I don't think it can go bad.

Pot will get you through times of hurricane better than no hurricane will get you through times of no pot.

Beef jerky is impervious. It's full of salt. Eat it.

Okay, didn't know that. But here is another fun fact: spoiling meat is a host to numerous bacteria, not just the ones especially harmful to humans. Those other bacteria do create a specific odour and taste. Just keep a piece of meat in your fridge for a few days after the "best by" date and smell for yourself. If there aren't enough bacteria on it to make it smell even slightly of, chances are there isn't a significant amount of salmonella or e coli on it either. Unless it was already a hotbed of salmonella or e coli of course, but then you'd be screwed either way.

I didn't know it either. heard it on an npr show a while back. blew my mind. but, didn't really change any of my practices. everything has bacteria on it, most bacteria is harmless. the harmless stuff will stink, but the harmful does not. if something stinks, that means bacteria is having fun, which likely means that the harmful, odorless bacteria is also having fun. 

/ never eat anything that smells/tastes bad. getting food poisoning or something else will probably end up depleting you worse than not eating. maybe. depends on much you are in survival mode.
