Ah, I would have thought we'd slipped a few spots in the rankings since I quit drinking about 7 months ago. I was definitely pushing up the averages which around here is saying something.

Global survey my ass. The survey covers Western European nations and Anglo-American nations, pretty much wherever the researchers could find someone speaking English. South Korea drinks far more than the Aussies and get rip roaringly drunk on a more frequent basis. Soju is the most popular spirit in the world not because it enjoys worldwide renown, but because Koreans drink it like water.

Now Aussies can still drink me under the table, but they have never tried to kill me like my Korean counterparts from their Air Combat Command ops team. Kill me with those sweet alluring delicious green bottles of Soju. Mmmm, Soju.

It would be more interesting to do things like this by breaking the US into actual states

Someone apparently hasn't been watching Russian dashcam videos. I'm pretty sure 99% of Rooskies are drunk 99% of the time.

Does subby know that Austria and Australia are different places?

At least we didn't give the world Hitler.

We gave you Rupert Murdoch instead. Sorry. We were drunk.

I lived in Perth in the mid-60s.  Not old enough to drink then but very aware of the drinking culture.  There was a beer truck drivers strike and they had to
implement rationing, a six pack per person per day.  There were riots over this.

I think they mixed it up in the article too.  they were drunk when they wrote this article.  much like the sources for the Steele Dossier.

You've been here 13 years and this is the first time you're seeing this meme?

I hope you don't own any slatted chairs.

I have a slatted chair which I rarely use, I wonder if I would get any offers if I put it up on the Fark garage sale thing.

Austria doesn't have great beers. You're thinking of Czechia next door.

Australia the drunkest? Absolutely. They're a combination of the UK and Texas.

It's a long-running Fark meme. I would have thought you'd need to be as blind as Anne Frank to have not noticed it here before.

I wouldn't blame them, every video looks like someone turned a failing rust belt city up to eleven.

How do people still not know this meme?

Also I'm not surprised. The aussies I've met can drink (and really love their cocain).

That's what I thought. Is this a self-reporting survey? "Yeah, I get drunk on New Year's Day and never really sober up all year long, so I'm going to report "once a year".

I needed logs from a server in Australia, called the POC, requested the logs.
"Oh, that's Tim's server; it's 5:30 on a Friday here, you will be lucky to get the logs by Tuesday".

Trans, non-binary and Intersex Australians were the largest contributors to the trend, getting drunk just over 35 times a year on average, followed by cis men (29.6) and cis women (20.9).

So, does being trans drive one to drink, or does being a drunk make becoming trans sound like a good idea?
 
2021-12-04 11:13:06 AM  
Australians would have less reason to be drunk if Australia were to do as Barbados recently did.
