the image they put into the article makes me laugh, including the caption: "Man in bar with a beer."
Oh, is THAT what that is?

Is this shiat being written by some kind of ArticleTron 2000?

Whatever is being done, it certainly makes for some compelling reading.

The obvious tag is standing outside the thread, in a puddle of it's own puke, yelling at the link and asking why we don't love it anymore.

CSB time:

About five years ago, on a Friday afternoon, before I had any drinks, I ended up in the emergency room because I had a mild case of jaundice( I didn't notice it, but my friends did). One of the first things they ask you, when in the emergency room, is how much do you drink? I made the mistake of telling the truth and I said l normally drink four or five beers on Fridays when I go out with my friends. That apparently classified me as a binge drinker. I got a bunch of pamphlets on the effects of binge drinking and one for AA and was sent home with a lecture on no more drinking or I will die. It turns out I had pancreatitis and ended up back in the hospital the following Monday. I ended up staying there for three days.

My point? Lie when they ask. It may save you thousands of dollars.

Oxotoxo: Drinking alone is a lonely and habit forming alternative than to be with people.  We are a social species, if you cannot tolerate people then drink alone or play wow, smoke dope, write, work, worship, or wack off.  What's so bad about people?


There are two kinds of people in this world, and I don't like them.

Billy West, of cartoon fame, has the greatest drinking story I've ever heard.

His Irish Catholic uncles were, back in the day, Irish Catholics. That pretty much says it all right there about their love of the brew. So what they'd do when they were drinkin' hard is head back to their factory and sleep in the doorway so they wouldn't be late the next day.
