EViLTeW: FTFA: While fewer people may be drinking, those who are drinking are often consuming more.

These fine folks deserve a HERO tag


Some of us here are picking up the slack for the rest of you lackeys

A lot of people in this country pooh-pooh Australian table wines. This is a pity as many fine Australian wines appeal not only to the Australian palate but also to the cognoscenti of Great Britain.

Black Stump Bordeaux is rightly praised as a peppermint flavoured Burgundy, whilst a good Sydney Syrup can rank with any of the world's best sugary wines.

Château Blue, too, has won many prizes; not least for its taste, and its lingering afterburn.

Old Smokey 1968 has been compared favourably to a Welsh claret, whilst the Australian Wino Society thoroughly recommends a 1970 Coq du Rod Laver, which, believe me, has a kick on it like a mule: eight bottles of this and you're really finished. At the opening of the Sydney Bridge Club, they were fishing them out of the main sewers every half an hour.

Of the sparkling wines, the most famous is Perth Pink. This is a bottle with a message in, and the message is 'beware'. This is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding.

Another good fighting wine is Melbourne Old-and-Yellow, which is particularly heavy and should be used only for hand-to-hand combat.

Quite the reverse is true of Château Chunder, which is an appellation contrôlée, specially grown for those keen on regurgitation; a fine wine which really opens up the sluices at both ends.

Real emetic fans will also go for a Hobart Muddy, and a prize winning Cuivre Reserve Château Bottled Nuit San Wogga Wogga, which has a bouquet like an aborigine's armpit.

At first, just being buzzed (whatever the substance) is the entertainment.  After a while, you learn to make it a complement of something else.  Getting high was fun just in itself.  Now, that alone isn't enough, so I pair it with video games.  Kind of like jerking off.  At first, just that was fun.  Now I have to spice it up, like doing it at the mall or into a mail dropbox.

sephjnr: Stimied in a Rut: Getting drunk isn't the entertainment, it's part of the larger activity that is the entertainment. Tailgating before a sports event or concert, hanging with friends at the bar, going to a party, etc.

You must be new to Chavs.

A lot of young Britons are drinking just for its own sake.


And they're on our lawns too. I read it in the Daily Mail.

Tat'dGreaser: You don't drink, good for you. Don't act like you're better than someone else. It's like there is no medium with these people, you either have to drink all the time or not at all. It is possible to drink once in awhile.

Hobart is by no means an alcoholic, but since he first started sneaking the occasional beer with his school friends aged 13, alcohol has been an ever present feature in his life.


Hmmmm
