    Just out of curiosity, why is it that people like to drink so much? I can understand in some specific cases, but I've never quite understood why people would generally want to.

    I like the taste, I like bars, and it's a nice way to unwind.

    Hmm... I think I wrote the question wrong. Its not so much a "why would anyone ever consume such $%^#?" as I agree that the taste (at least in some cases) is rather enjoyable, and it is a good way to unwind (though, such can easily be done without drinking in excess). What I don't understand is why people like to get completely smashed.

    Note, I'm not criticizing anyone's choices or anything, I am honestly curious.

    Cheers

    Ah, I see now. I don't really have a good answer for that. Sometimes it's nice to not have worry about controlling yourself. My New Years was a good example about that. I don't do that very often - once every few months or so.

    edit: Although I have no idea why someone would want to drink this "Instant Death" drink - sounds terrible.

    With a name like that, how can I resist!

    (Everclear's illegal in this state AFAIK, and I really don't like liquor, so I'll just pass, thanks)

    Even though it does sound pretty nasty, I will try it as well

    >>Everclear's illegal in this state AFAIK<<

    I'm not sure if its illegal here, but if I need it I get SPIRYTUS - same strength

    >>What I don't understand is why people like to get completely smashed.<<

    what can I say, sometimes it just happens I don't understand people who get completely drunk, puke, pass out and then lay in bed for the next two days - now thats just stupid thankfully I don't have any of those side effects (well, maybe passing out)...

    This reminds me... has anyone ever used those pills (forgot what they are called) you are suppossed to be able to take before you go out drinking? You know, the ones that prevent any hangover effects the next day. I was just curious to know if they worked.

    I tried them once, but the night I took them I didn't drink much.

    Didn't have a hangover the next day, though!

    Yes, that sounds like what I remember them being called on some radio/TV commercial. I never get drunk enough to really have bad hangovers, but I was wondering for people that do go out and get completely wasted/smashed if they had tried this and it helped them. So what's the deal, you take them a couple hours before going out drinking and then no problems the next morning?
