These are pretty compelling reasons to drink, in fact I might just have to take a walk over to the fridge right now.

say what?

>I feel sorry for people who don't drink. Cause

at least i do feel good all day...

>An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.

why is that? sounds like the intelligent man is just antisocial and needs help finding friends...

>A woman drove me to drink and I didn't even have the decency to thank her.

hm....that man just doenst know how to say no to a girl...


>When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave
up reading.

why? reading is great? there are some awesome books out there...

>24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case.
Coincidence? I think not!!

why start in the first place? just because there are 24 beers in the case doesnt mean it has to be drunken...

>When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk,we fall asleep. When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to
heaven!

too bad the drinking is the sin...

>Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

beer is proof that satan wants to cloud our minds and take away are agency to make us sin some more...

>Without question, the greatest invention in the
history of mankind is beer. Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the
wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza.

how could it go well with pizza? ive never tasted it before, but it smells horrible....i am perfectly happy with Sprite with my pizza...

>Beer: "Helping ugly people have sex since 1862!!..."

desperate people....not ugly people...i know many ugly people who dont need to drink...

>Remember "I" before "E", except in Budweiser.

how is that a reason to drink beer?

>To some its a six-pack, to me it's a Support Group

if its a support group...then already your agency has been taken away....

none of those are good reasons to drink.

The first one is supposed to be: "Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about all the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than to be selfish and worry about my liver."

C'mon, david - they're jokes... It's not like we need excuses to drink anyways :)

How can alcohol consumption be evil when the Bible talks about things like Jesus turning water into wine? (I know this thread's going bad places, now, but it had to be asked)

I wonder if Jesus was drunk when he created the Platypus.

Oh Geez, davie - lighten up.

Here's part of my sig at FD:

>>
There are 24 hours in a day, and 24 beers in a case. Coincidence?

Reality is an illusion that occurs due to the lack of alcohol.
<<

>>drunkenness and excess are.

Good thing I'm going for that deathbed repentance thing ;) Kidding! Kidding!! ::stares nervously at sky:: Just kidding, Lord...

I got so drunk a couple weeks ago...I didn't mean to really I didn't. I had .75 liter of whiskey and some smirnoff ice 101. I was so sick the next day, I barfed and missed work...and I'm young still. I think I could've died.
Damn you people who force alcohol on us young people

and when i say i didn't mean to, it was because I can't remember most of the night...

Granted, that's not really keeping with the spirit of the Bible, but hey, sins are for Saturday night and penance is for Sunday morning.

wake up...and drink up!

I dont actually know any religious types who think beer is evil. I thought that kind of weirdness had passed away for the most part. What strain of religion is this?

Guess I'm just an evil guy whos going straight to hell. Ah well, I'll be having fun on the way there. ;)

Fountain, you're drunk again arent you?

>>I barfed and missed work...and I'm young still

And stupid apparently. The two usually go hand in hand but one always has hope.

Well, I'm done stirring the pot for today.

Most religious people I know don't have any problems with drinking as long as it's in moderation.

However, I know this group of church people who condemn drinking. My friends are uncomfortable drinking around them and once they were lectured by this group of people for drinking.

Other than that, I don't see why you would need an excuse for drinking. Oh yeah, drunk drivers suck. Put your own life at risk if you want but don't put others at risk.

Most religious people I know don't have any problems with drinking. Period. I mean think about it, logically. I fail to recognise the evilness of drinking really old fruit juice. ;) Ok, simplification, but you get the idea.

>>Oh yeah, drunk drivers suck. Put your own life at risk if you want but don't put others at risk.

Dito. I think the legal limit should be lowered. I've been under the "limit" and felt I shouldnt drive. Its not a very accurate method to determine capability anyhow. I suppose its the best that can be done.

You can go out and have fun and let loose but draw the line anywhere you're actions begin to hurt/infringe on anyone else.

GOD DAMN....No I am not....The sentance above makes sense to me (+millions of others) and probably makes sense to subdene (senior member)....


ok, for lightatdawn....................

Subdene, If you are online and surfing about AND READ THIS post,

I switched my day off to Friday.

We shall go play pool/snooker and have lots of beers (stella?!)

Sorry man, but my moblie telephonic device battery went below a certain charge level and I am recharging it now.

FINALLY- In the morning I shall text you (with my then FULLY charged moblie telephonic device ((know as a cell phone i think over the water)), to confirm which day this week we are going out on the lash. It will be probably Friday. Sorry about the canadians/Americans-I had to repost this as they seem to have lost the textbooks we left with them after we taught them OUR ENGLISH language.

Oooooh, dont call me drunk again-I always know when I am.

Why not drink?

The bible mentions alcohol the whole time. Sure, you can get drunk but don't do it every day. (you can become an alcoholic)
Dont abuse it!

*Takes an sip of his delicious RED HEART RUM*

And even whiskey is good for your heart! Some people takes a tot of it every day.

anyway, what fun would a braai, nightclub or even a social be withou alcohol? Just think of all th efunny things that can happen...:D

I once asked a priest if it was sin to get drunk. He said "if you drink with the intention of getting drunk, it is a sin, however, if you drink and get drunk but didn't plan to that isn't a sin".

Then he fell down asleep, spilling his beer on the floor :D*











*actually this isn't true, but the first part of my story is :)
