    Everclear...Sweet Jesus. *shudders at the memories*
    I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.

    Windows XP consists of 32 bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company, that can't stand 1 bit of competition.

    When I was at uni doing Microbiology/Molecular biology we bred a form of brewing yeast that could survive alchol at over 25%. (normal is around 14-17%)

    Made 'swampland lager' at 23%.

    Just don't EVER mix a substantial amount of beer and alcohol together, they don't go together really nice. TRUST ME. I don't really know why though. But it will make you feel really bad.

    "Beer before liquor, you'll never be sicker;
    Liquor before beer, have no fear"

    Duh.


    anyhow, I'm agreeing with l@d here. In moderation, in moderation, in moderation. I mean, I've been really f'ed in the past, but I could always figure out when I really needed to stop before I killed myself, and I could always keep myself under enough control to keep myself out of trouble (and out of cuffs )

    If you know that theres a possibility that drinking could harm you....

    Why even drink? Isnt that kind of stupid?
    And drinking in "moderation", if you have to be soo careful as too how much you drink... HELLO PPL.

    No one HAS to drink, i mean if they dont get addicted.

    great . . . now we got a "i got so drunk dude" thread going.

    No offence, but its harmless in moderation.
    i'm not doubting this, i only wish 200 proof was not lauded to the kiddies as a good time. in all honesty, i'd push cocain before everclear and the like; at least with the harder drugs ther's a gradual progression toward trouble and in all liklyhood there would be someone experienced with you to "guide", so to speak. alcohol comes in a bottle, anyone can overdose, but how many 13-year-olds know how to correctly prick a vein?

    just skip the everclear and grab some lady bombay instead . . . another useless minute spent ranting

    i never drink, btw, i think that alcohol is a rather unfrienly tasting substance... i don't drink it because of that.

    I use logic and reasoning where others do it just to be a rebel, go fig(newton).

    Thumbs down

    the taste improves with every glassss...it still sux. takes away your inhibitions; makes you do and say things you wouldn't normally do under sober circumstances...i'm one of those whose personality changes when i'm drunk...i become kind of psychotic in a way...i don't miss it at all. i quit cold turkey...and it isn't difficult to get others to do the same...i could go into it sometime...as usual, i'm not in the mood right now. basically though...to quit it...you need to disassociate yourself from your drunkard friends until you get it together. find hobbies e.g. amateur astronomy, take up a movie downtown once every week...drink only on weekends, then make it only once every month...then only on holidays. once it's out of your system, you'll begin to realize that it isn't the non-drinking world that's out of touch...and corny...etc...it was YOU...because you were chemically addicted and you didn't realize it. if you get started back up once you've quit...only drink for a solid month...if that fails, make it two months, increments of one month; that way you can look back after you quit again and say to yourself...i took it back up for e.g. 3 months back in 2002...and i haven't touched it since....it's psychological...and yes, i learned this in the twilight zone...i.e. from within.....my own method.




    seriously.

    I'm only 15, but believe it or not I have drinken...oh what a surprise lol. I started to drink about 2 years ago and as time went on i started to drink a little more frequently but still not that often at all and then sometime in last november i got stupid. i drank 3 beers and 10 shots of rum in about a 2 and a half hour span...I'm not sure if this sounds like much to some of you but it was for me. i got so incredibly messed up. after that i said i would never drink again which i didn't...until a few weekends ago when i started to drink. actually enough, though, i took about one or two drinks and i became so repulsed from it. everytime i think about alcohol since that night i get grossed out. even more so now i have no desire to drink. so i guess in all reality getting messed up that night actually had an upside...i don't have any desire to drink.

    well that wasnt aimed at you tech, just evry body in general.
    I have never touched a beer or anything and dont plan too.
    It just seems stupid to drink some thing that could harm you in such a way.
