And since this was in issue so recently close to my heart, I would just like to say, that if it wasn't such a freakin big deal, and they didn't make us wait so freakin long, maybe alcohol wouldn't cause so many problems with young adults in America.

it sounds kind of odd though

"thank you mod"

See, my point exactly. American college students only want to get trashed and make fools of themselves because they have been under the illusion that drinking is a privilege. If they had been drinking their whole lives like Europeans, it wouldn't be such a big deal. I haven't been drunk since a rather memorable Christmas party and an incident with a karaoke machine...

there are many levels of intoxication

typsy- you feel pretty good but have most of your faculties
drunk- your body isnt doing anything bad yet, like throwing up or ******* itself, but you've succesfully removed any barriers to behavior
obliterated- crazy berzerk black out puking everywhere need to get carried home type of night

Number 1 on my pet peeves list.

People younger than 21 who show-off by telling others how many illegal drinks they can drink. Getting drunk and blacking-out isn't very safe.. maybe one day, before you die.. you'll get arrested.. I can only hope that.

that's absolutely right, binge drinking is the product of a societies over-restrictive views of alcohol

i did karoke on my 19th birthday at a sake bar...that was really fun

Your absolutely right, when I was in euro I never got carded. And I look youngand good, ;) . I think of drinking as a good casual thing and a good stress reliever. Especially if theres a really hott girl and the nervousness just about kills you, :lol:

And I think if drinking would be casual we wouldnt see all that fuss about it. Thats just my opinion

Alcohol testicles must be included, too...No; not literally!:doh

When I was 21, I was challenged...put down 15 shots of Jack in less than an hour...I am saying this because I am NOT proud of it...

Went to go to the bathroom...didn't make it to the jukebox...

Had one shot of it since...in 14 years...

And than I look over to the adds on the right and they say:

"Drinking Alcohol
Learn How To Treat Alcohol Drinking Problems. End Alcoholism Today."


"Alcoholism Treatment
Help Yourself or Someone You Love Learn Ways to Overcome Addiction
Drug-Rehab-101.com"

Are they watching us? :shock:
