Exactly! Alcohol ONLY hurts the people who use it and has no effect whatsoever on family members and/or complete strangers. Well, unless those people drink that booze and then climb behind the wheel of their SUV and mow down your entire family as you walk down the street. Or, I suppose, if they get drunk and violent and stab you in the face for eyeballin' their woman. Or if your parent/spouse/whoever likes to get hammered and then use you as a punching bag. Other than that though, alcohol abuse is pretty much victimless, unlike those scary guns that constantly thirst for the blood of the innocent.

Small's Gin, freezer temperature, no ice.  Good on it's own, but I make it more interesting by chucking a piece of fruit in.  It just gives a little juice to the gin, then at the end I get a gin-infused treat.  Tonight was pineapple, which worked better than I expected.

Assault is illegal even if you aren't under the influence of alcohol.  Drunk driving is alcohol related, sure, but it's also illegal, and the police can legally set up checkpoints to check for drunk drivers, or pull people over if they suspect they are driving drunk.

The closest gun equivalent to drunk driving would be concealed and open carry.  It takes the risk of gun ownership and brings it into the public, just like drunk driving takes the risk of alcohol consumption and brings it into the public.  The big difference is that we believe people have the constitutional right to carry guns around.  The police can't set up checkpoints to see if people are carrying legally or illegally, and they can't pull people over based on the suspicious of a gun in the vehicle.

Outlawing something doesn't make it go away, but we as a country are pretty damn harsh on drunk drivers.

Angry Orchard Traditional Dry hard cider

/I drink my apple a day
//ok... several apples

It's weird to see so many hard ciders popping up, especially out of what I'd been accustomed to considering the cider seasons, fall and winter, but apparently they are really earning their spots on the shelf just like the craft brews. I've never drank hard cider from a store, I bet they hit the spot on a cold day. But right now, a cold day would hit the spot even more.

Having just arrived in England and seen the ample selection and variety of ciders here its amazing that they havent caught on more in the states. I would say the average ABV on the ciders here is somewhere around 7-8% so theyre no joke when you start having more than a few at a time. Ive had a couple up near the 12% line and theyre just as smooth as their weaker siblings.


When I was there and didn't know such things existed, I bought a bottle of what I thought was sparkling apple juice. Had some in the morning with breakfast. About halfway through the glass I realized I was gonna report for duty half pissed.

/they only warned us about the OTC cough syrup!

I can keep going. I can think of many many ways in which liquor is regulated in the USA with the purpose of minimizing the harm alcohol does to society. Similar measures with regards to guns are decried as draconian gun-grabbing anti-constitutional totalitarianism by the NRA crowd.

I'll just add to the cider discussion. My wife hates beer, but really likes cider, especially when I brew a batch for her at home. She hasn't ever been a huge fan of Smirnoff type of stuff and cider is a nice alternative to wine.

As for hoppy craft brews, I will say that I even though love IPAs, I really try to avoid them when I hit up BevMo and such. Some of our local breweries here in SoCal (Hangar 24 for example) are turning out really good styles that aren't IPAs. Heck, even Stone makes a vanilla porter that is killer and they've never said no to adding more hops (love Stone alot, but I think they should get the lion's share of the blame for hop bombs being the norm)

All fun n games until you get your liver yanked out due to it being covered in gang green.
Buddy would not listen to anyone, he knew it all.. drank EVERY SINGLE DAY. Drank 45 beers in a day when there was a derecho forecast (this was after we had been hit by one and had no power for weeks and his excuse was, he didn't want to drink  it HOT like last time... yes, I meant to input the number 45!!!!).
I enjoy a good drink but very picky on beer - it has to have a very strong, full flavor; stuff like Bud Light just doesn't cut it anymore. And, that muddy water, thick shiat - good way to start a fight by handing me that crap.
I prefer good whiskey / scotch.  Have a $100+ bottle of Chivas Regal waiting to be cracked once some friends are all free at the same time (lol even bought a case of bar glass JUST to drink it with - case was 36 in number, not 24 for some reason. Plus a matching, large glass ice bucket.. then stumbled across a mirror in same search, so bought it, too.... Had just sold a few computers and made multiple repairs, so went a little overboard). Crown, Bean, even Seagram's... ONLY one I have a dislike for is Jack - after drinking a bottle at 15, and being sick for 3 days, just the smell pisses me off (and started a bar fight when a smart ass tried to make me smell a shot of it and splashed it in my nose).

But, in all seriousness... I wish I had known of something to do for my long time friend to MAKE him slow down or stop! )no, I do not drink much... I still have MOST of a case left from TWO birthdays ago when I was given 2 cases and multple 40oz of my fav beer as gifts from friends).  I TRIED to talk him into AA meetings, church meetings, involving his family, suggesting getting the drug where if you drink on it, it would make u sick...  I tried everything I could think of; he wound up in THREE hospitals in 2 states then recovery for a grand total of over a month to heal up.
Honestly, now that he stopped drinking (they say if he drinks as little as one alcoholic beverage, it could actually kill him), he is the most boring person on the planet. His GF can't hardly even get him to go to a store (if he wasn;t fishing out money for a new house... I'd lay $1,000 cash he wouldn't have that GF).
Anyhow.. if in my same spot with a friend drinking too much.. SEE if you can try something more.. I just have no idea what more there can be done.

/yeah yeah CSB BS.. just tossing that out there for anyone who has a friend of... well, since 8th grade so 33 years being friends.  Really bums your shiat not to go out for a cold one with best bud anymore because wouldn't listen.  MAYBE telling this story could help just one person? Convince them.

What do you consider a minor?  You can't drink until you're 21, but you can bartend when you're 18 (in PA, at least).  I'm pretty sure that if, for example, a contestant on Masterchef Junior needed to use sherry for a recipe, they'd be allowed to.  I see what you're saying, and there are plenty of idiots who say "Instead of banning guns, why don't we ban cars, since the mass shooter used one to get to his destination?" and those people can't be punched hard enough, but I think it's worth bringing up.

Stone Smoked Porter is one of the few porters/stouts that I really like.  As far as CA beers go, I really have a hard time thinking of anything better than Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.  Sure, it stretches the limits of what can be considered craft beer, but on the plus side it's available pretty much everywhere.  It's just the perfect balance of flavor, hoppyness, bitterness, and drinkability, plus it has some really nice citrus notes.

I think a lot of people write it off like Sam Adams as a mega brew masquerading as a craft brew because they're so big, but it really is a quality product.

Bullshiat. Whether a state allows open-carry and/or concealed-carry, there are plenty of rules and laws that determine who, what, when, where, why, and how one can or cannot carry a firearm in public.

/but keep farking that chicken, tute

fusillade762: Hey, don't get all smug, Australia:

List of countries by alcohol consumption


Surprised Australia came in so low. I thought their main export was alcoholics.

TheMega: Honestly, now that he stopped drinking (they say if he drinks as little as one alcoholic beverage, it could actually kill him), he is the most boring person on the planet.


Was he NOT boring before he stopped drinking? Or were you just too buzzed to notice?

It's pretty obvious that alcohol use is just compensation for your small penis.

Giltric: TuteTibiImperes: I don't have to worry about a guy on the street trying to rob me with a bottle of schnapps.   If a kid finds his dad case of Coors he isn't going to kill himself or his friend with it.  A maniac can't use a fifth of rum to kill dozens of unsuspecting people.

No the car they get into will. Or they will get into an argument depending upon what personality manifests when they drink and maybe get all stabby over which way the toilet paper goes on the rack.


Is that really a thing, or is it just something some comedian made up as a pretend stupid argument drunks get into?

Bill_Wick's_Friend: There are warning labels on liquor in the USA.

You can't carry an open beer around in the USA.

Minors, even under supervision, are prohibited from using liquor in the USA.

I can keep going. I can think of many many ways in which liquor is regulated in the USA with the purpose of minimizing the harm alcohol does to society. Similar measures with regards to guns are decried as draconian gun-grabbing anti-constitutional totalitarianism by the NRA crowd.


Yes and no one breaks any of these laws, right?

FTA: Nearly one in 10 of the deaths that befell working-age adults was traceable to alcohol.

Therefore over nine in 10 of the deaths were traceable to other than alcohol, or not alcohol, to simplify matters.
Therefore not drinking is nine times more deadly than drinking. So keep a steady drip going all day, just to be safe.

I don't have a penis unless I borrow one if you know what I mean and I think you do.
