Work was a bow and a slog today.  Didn't do anything really, kind of tuckered off into a bit of a lilly.

I call bullshiat.  A hangover only slows me down until noon.  So I do things that require less brain and more brawn until then.

/supervising the FNG as he superceedes the last three CCDs counts as brawn

No matter how much water I drink.

Meh, only if you don't stop for a loaded omlette biscuit or two in the morning.

Not if you're unemployed!

Work productivity or partying productivity?

Seriously... if you're an adult with any more job responsibility than "don't trip over your shovel", you shouldn't be drinking yourself into near brain damage, especially on a work night.  I know, [sgt-hulka-jpg], but seriously... that shiat was "fun" for about a year or so when I was in undergrad, and then I realized how stupid it was to drink until not only was I unable to walk properly or have proper sexual function, but I was also likely to vomit or get in a fight... and to top it all off feel terrible the next day.  Some fun.

Pedialyte could restore our GDP in a heartbeat.

Drink half a pedialyte (or 32 gatorade/powerade) before bed. Drink other half pedialyte or your choice of "are" when you get up. Then consume two spicy chickens from Wendy's. Your day will be full of win.
(This was my tried and true strategy for my Sr. year of college and first two years after when I worked a crappy retail job).

Gorram autocorrect. "ade", not "are".

The answer is no hangovers. Become enough of a hard core drinker and you feel fabulous the next morning...also no DUIs, because your alcohol tolerance is stellar!

Man, fark productivity.  It's not like people in our society see a corresponding rise in wages when productivity increases.

Absolutely this! Unless extra productivity means I am going to get a raise or a promotion by my merits, it is only worth doing a job just enough to not get fired. (thanks Peter Gibbons)

The value of a wage slave is measured in productivity.

Ah, see, I can get utterly blitzed, and never have a problem getting it up. Also, what the hell were you doing that you got into fights? Being a belligerent drunk?

Sounds like many of your problems were your problems and don't affect a lot of us.

When you're unemployed the weekend is meaningless.

Big glass of water and a couple of asprin before bed, double shot of your liquor of choice and chase it with some pedialyte/gatorade/powerade and a couple more asprin, you will make that hangover your biatch

Right there with you... I also get dehydrated extremely easily though so that's probably why. I have to be careful if I'm not doing something else while I drink (like playing Diablo).

Hey now, sometimes you get concentrating on something and don't realize you've had that 1-2 extra that you had in the back of the fridge, or other things come up. I forgot you shouldn't mix NyQuil with alcohol last time I got a cold, took a regular dose of it after a craft beer session on my first day being sick, and paid for it the next morning. Probably doesn't help when the insomnia kicks in and I'm like 'might as well drink' til oh say this time of night.

I'm the obnoxiously talkative drunk, not the belligerent one.  I never got in any fights... but a  lot of other people seem to.
