    Oh Bonny...You made this thread just for me, didnt you?

    Well anyway..I've only been drunk one time in my life, and I did program while I was.

    [ Dumb old boring story ]

    'Twas a saltry day in June.. I had just gotten back from a barn 'party', and had just happened to get drunk. I sat down at my computer, and opened my ancient copy of Dev-C++. I started including dumb headers, defining stupid macros, and using way too much cout. Below is the start of the progam's source code.

    Code:
    #include "eatmyshorts.h"
    #include <iostream.h>
    #include "kickme.h"
    #include <conio.h>
    
    #define beer cout<<"I love beer";
    #define dooby cout<<"I love pot";
    After writing that...I woke up.

    [/ dumb old boring story]

    Anyways folks (and Bonny), I have personally never been drunk, and everything that I wrote above this paragraph is pure bullsh!t.

    From what i've heard, most people who get drunk or are under the influence of drugs cannot remember what they did during that time period...

    I'm not saying that what I just said is correct, it's just what I have heard; from friends, relatives, and police officers. (and dont forget the TV)

    Yeah, because it's so dangerous. You're really living on the edge
    when you write code while drunk. I can imagine the hilarious
    situations that people must have been in while coding under the
    influence of drugs...

    See, Ethic, here's how it is... immature 12 year olds get the biggest kick out of stuff like this. i think it might be because it makes them feel special inside or something. like they have this burning desire to hear people say boobs and penis. now this doesn't apply to all 12 year olds, just the immature ones like Ruflano/Golden Bunny/Alphawhatever...

    No and I can't really see why you would want to program when under the influence.

    Thanks. Some people assume you're no fun, unless you drink large amounts of alcohol. It's good to see that it's not everyone .

    Well, that's basically true. I mean - no one liked me before I started to consume gallons upon gallons of frosty cold grain-based beverages. Sadly, that still holds true. But now, at least I've got my cold mug of brew to talk to!

    Seriously - no one's gonna call you anything for that, rah - there's nothing wrong with it at all. I think there's something more wrong with people who get tanked and try to code. I mean - c'mon - you know you can't concentrate on anything - who are you trying to fool?

    I programmed most of a DOS GUI whilst high. It turned out fine as an executable, but the code was horrible to read and understand. Granted, I coded this when I was a newbie.

    >From what i've heard, most people who get drunk or are under the influence of drugs cannot remember what they did during that time period...<

    Of course this depends entirely apon the drug at hand...

    About 18 years ago, I had a huge problem with alcohol. I would
    drink, probably, 12 beers per day... After my son was born, I
    knew I had to stop. Well, my son is now having a son of his own.
    I'm going to be a grandfather, and now I'm thinking it's time for
    me to give up marijuana. It's time I take responsibility for my life.
