"Americans have spent an estimated $30.43 billion on these spontaneous drunk purchases, or about $447.57 per person. ..."

Ha! I only managed to spend $160 on drunk purchases last year.

Of course, that was all on a single beer, which I haven't even opened yet.

I hear ya, Headless.  Intoxicating just to look at.

/Still a drunk, and all of which that entails, but Utopias is my Stanley Cup.

You laugh now but my limited edition Skymall Easter Island Head is the best investment I ever made.

What the hell is a $160 beer?  Is like like a $20 bomber that comes with a really nice $140 handjob, or do you consider a whole keg "a single beer"?

It beats going to Walmart at 3AM after the bars close and wandering around drunk for 2 hours if only because I can shop online in my underwear and no one complains... Walmart on the other hand...they have standards.  They may be low, but they are standards.

My brother once bought exactly 6 episodes of Scooby-Doo after getting a bunch of margaritas at a Mexican restaurant. How do I know? I was DD. He wanted a whole season; but wouldn't listen to me.

/ it was really funny

I'm so glad I don't drink anymore. I've got enough things in life bending me over a barrel, derp drunkenness I can't afford anymore.

Man, I don't think you can find a Utopias for less than $300 right now. What I bought was a highly regarded bomber of a BA stout from the west coast. It's quite the surprise when FedEx shows up at your door and you don't remember ordering anything.

Millennials are twice as likely as Gen Xers and baby boomers combined to enjoy a glass of moonshine or other liquor.

I hope the article is referring to store bought moonshine and not real moonshine.

Or the signed left shoe of Marcus Georges-Hunt. But it was a one-off design for Flip Saunders' memorial that went to charity so, you know. Worth it.

It was a BA stout made by Bottle Logic. I have no idea what the base price was, but I was drunk, alright? I'm trying to justify the purchase by saving it for a special occasion.

FARK.COM might profit from that information, using Drunken Online Shopping to sell TotalFark, etc.

Advertize directly to the booze hounds.

It's a thought. I am very abstemious myself but never without an opinion on booze.

Put Fark ads on bottles of artisanal or home-made beer? I am sure that it could be arranged by some Farker or other.

Never going to what?

a) never going to get laid?
b) never going to drink/drunk shop again? (hey, I said that in UK and US)
c) never going to leave his Mother's basement as long as Fark.com exists?

I could go on, but that is part of the fun for other people. Me not going on and on and on and on and ....

I am a regular little Energizer Bunny when you get me started, aren't I?

*puts on, adjusts pedant hat*

You can't buy moonshine at the store, because moonshine is untaxed liquor.

Classics or the 2011 stuff? That's available through any Cartoon Network streaming, and Velma is most definitely trying to bang Shaggy.

I only sponsor while drunk.

The only thing I buy while drunk are Steam games. Sometimes I'll be looking through my catalog and go "What the hell is that??"

$447 per person?

I probably did that at least three times between Dec. 1st and 20th last year. Folks need to step up their game.

/ I'll try to be more responsible this year and do that before Thanksgiving
 
2018-03-08 11:53:57 PM  
That is a crap study. It assumes all purchases made by someone who admits shopping while drunk are made while drunk. Utterly stupid assumption.

That said, I bought a CD 3 weeks ago which I already owned. Alcohol was involved. I should have just paid myself but no, that did not occur to me.

I got a Stefon Diggs jersey from China. 
Ordered a 3XL men's. I believe I got a women's medium. 
Arrived a day before the Superbowl.

I had two friends from home. We all went to college but after grad came home. So one night we're playing beer pong at an apartment. We start talking bout traveling the world and what to do next and the game gets longer, deeper, more drunker, shots happen. I ended up on the floor. It was a good time and a lot of persons blacked out. Thumbs up for sure.

Wake up the next day, its like 1030, Im still blitzed, and Anthony is freaking out and yelling a bunch. In their drunken, blacked out haze, he convinced another guy to buy two one way tickets to Rome..... that day. Plane takes off in 8 hours. They call the airline but they are declaring "non-refundable on day of." So they did the next best thing: They packed.

Their drunk-selves sent their sober-selves on a euro vacation for a week.

My drunken friend bought one of these while drunk.
