For those in the Queens,NYC area from what I understand this bar Remi is having a Freestyle Flashback night tonight and they have an open bar 8-10pm with no cover so lets see if we can get that .7% up!

This deserves a "Sad" tag.

Sadly, many of those included in this study were kittens who slowly drank themselves to death.

· Dustin Phillips holds the record for ketchup drinking. He drank a 14-ounce bottle of tomato ketchup through a straw in 33 seconds on September 23, 1999.

wow, he deserves a medal.

Saw this in Maxim a few months ago.
2003-03-13 04:18:40 PM  
...and just think of those children from Third-world nations, why they have to get drunk on less than a dollar a day!

"On average, 150 couples get married in Las Vegas each day."
And right there, folks, are some of the people who are drunk each day.

Gotta figure 1/3 of us are sleeping at any given point...percentage of the world's population can't afford or do not have access to alcohol...some folks don't drink, some are too young...

Still looking at 60 million or so drunks at any given moment. I'm damn well doing my share.
2003-03-13 04:23:45 PM  
I think I am going to go drink some Witches Brew right now!
2003-03-13 04:25:43 PM  
I wonder what the stat is for the western world? It's gotta be higher than that.
2003-03-13 04:26:09 PM  
I'll be doing my part to raise that percentage here shortly...
2003-03-13 04:27:57 PM  
Maybe I'm biased but as a recovering alcoholic I would have to say that number would easily be closer to 5% maybe even 10% there are alot of folks who just don't make it well known how much they drink.
2003-03-13 04:28:41 PM  
Someone help me out. I've been trying to figure out what PSA stands for for about 5 months now. Anyone got any help?
2003-03-13 04:30:18 PM  
Sounds like bullshiat to me.
2003-03-13 04:31:13 PM  
God knows I do my fair share for the average.
2003-03-13 04:31:40 PM  
I will be drunk very soon. Dam clock go faster damn you!!!!
2003-03-13 04:33:43 PM  
It's a Fark thing:

At any given moment, 0.7% of world's population is drunk.

Considering that a majority of the world at that time is either asleep, underage or religiously abstaining, I conclude that a lot of people (mostly farkers) are indeed, legally intoxicated.
2003-03-13 04:34:58 PM  
I'm already gettin drunk! My contribution has been made to the 0.7% already!

"The world's widest road is the Monumental Axis in Brazil, where 160 cars can drive side by side."

Really kills the chances of a last second exit, doesn't it?

2003-03-13 04:38:13 PM  
VinegarJones, I would grant that maybe 5% of the US pop is drunk, but 0.7% is really high for world pop.

2003-03-13 04:44:45 PM  
thanks milkbone
2003-03-13 04:44:50 PM  
I'm really glad that I was already drunk when I read this. Otherwise, I would have had to go on some sort of insane eight-day guilt bender.

I can tell you, waking up in Singapore without knowing how you got there twice in one year before April bodes ill for the remainder.

OMG i spilled my shot fark it where is the bottle
2003-03-13 04:55:21 PM  
For some reason I think it might be more than just 0.7%..I'm about 5 seconds away from doing my part!
2003-03-13 05:05:54 PM  
I wasn't aware that Ireland made up 0.7% of the world's population.

"We're not trying hard enough"

Right, we could use some more spousal/child abuse, fistfights, and car crashes. And probably a couple plane crashes as well. Not to mention unwanted children. And vomitting. You can never have too much vomitting.

How exactly does this qualify as a PSA?
2003-03-13 05:33:14 PM  
I'm trying, I'm trying!!! on #4 right now!
2003-03-13 05:34:00 PM  
What about on St. Patty's day, Mardi Gras, or weekends? And all those russian holidays where everyone goes on a bender and wakes up on an iceflow? Also, the last I heard those Japs are doing thier share for this stat every day...

"Be always drunken. Nothing else matters: that is the only question. If you would not feel the horrible burden of Time weighing on your shoulders and crushing you to the earth, be drunken continually. Drunken with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you will. But be drunken. And if sometimes, on the stairs of a palace, or on the green side of a ditch, or in the dreary solitude of your own room, you should awaken and the drunkenness be half or wholly slipped away from you, ask of the wind, or of the wave, or of the star, or of the bird, or of the clock, of whatever flies, or sighs, or rocks, or sings, or speaks, ask what hour it is; and the wind, wave, star, bird, clock, will answer you: 'It is the hour to be drunken continually! With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you will.'"

I assume you're new to Fark.
2003-03-13 06:09:52 PM  
All patrons of fark temporarily loose all responsibility, thus allowing them to say what they WANT to say, despite what their wife (or husband), government, girlfriend (or Boy friend), or Religion might or might not say. in otherwords, go nuts. (Right now i wish i had a pic of the squirrel nuts that so frequent the photoshop contests)
2003-03-13 06:16:45 PM  

That was my Boobies, but I've been reading Fark for about 8 or 9 months. So yes, I am aware of that the average Farkers is overwhelmingly pro-drunkenness. I simply disagree.
2003-03-13 06:18:38 PM  
Why is "Boobies" filtered to "Boobies?"

Why is [image from pitt.edu too old to be available] censored?
2003-03-13 06:27:39 PM  
You're all "newbies" unless you have an account made before mine. Nyah!
2003-03-13 06:30:38 PM  
Well...I guess I'd better get to it then....

Gotta agree with you there. As an active alcoholic, I frequently hide the actual number of beers I drink a day.
2003-03-13 06:47:59 PM  
everyone who has a date stamp in their account info is a newbie, no matter how long they've been around.
