Whiskey saves lives

Now I  know what you’re thinking…”I already knew that whiskey is a life saver.” But this time I’m not talking about drinking yourself silly so you pass out and don’t kill yourself because your girlfriend broke up with you.

To Beer or not to Beer?

Pint of beerWe don’t really know where this came from, but we assume that people who drink beer for water could be asking ‘How long can one live solely on beer’? Well, the answer is definitely not that simple. Conducting a research experiment on this, by feeding individuals simply beer, would be extremely unethical. However, we’re sure some of you would do that for free, but please, don’t!

There are a few facts though that could give us all a hint on whether or not this might be possible. Rather, how long it would take before you start throwing up parts of your liver. The story goes back to the Seven Years War of 1756-63, where physician to the English fleet, John Clephane, conducted this sort of clinical trial. Read the rest of this entry »

Councilman’s Form of Relief

Jersey City councilman Steven Lipski was arrested this weekend for reportedly urinating on a crowd of concertgoers in a Washington, D.C., nightclub during a concert by a Grateful Dead tribute band – Now that’s what I call relief!

He told The New York Daily News he won’t touch alcohol again, calling the incident “deeply humiliating” and “troubling.”

Jersey City Councilwoman Willie Flood told The Jersey Journal that Lipski is saying it was a spilled drink that fell on other Grateful Dead fans. 

Seems to be some controversy over what really happened… Did anyone happen to be at this concert over the weekend?

And The Winner Is…

He would like to remain anonymous… So I won’t reveal his name, but here is his story:

“This was a few years ago.  I had graduated, was unemployed, and spent many a weekend visiting my alumnus (Penn State).  Obviously this meant LOTS of drinking and debauchery.  This happened every weekend, but one PARTICULAR weekend sticks out…

I had come up on a Thursday for a long weekend… Well mainly because Thursday night was Long Island Ice Tea night ($2 teas) for 2 hours at this place called Cafe 210.  3 of these things and you were feeling pretty good… I had 5!  The special ended at 8 PM and I was already borderlined blackout.  From there we went to another bar, all of which is a blur, but according to the people I was with I was far from good shape. 

Now you see, I had this problem in college.  If I got separated from the group post blackout something bad always happened.  From hooking up with fat chicks to waking up in random stairwells.  This time however it was far worse…

Don’t Drink and Shoot

Here’s something I have not YET managed to do while drunk… And am pretty sure I never will (I hate guns!):

“A drinking spree ended on a bloody note after a junior policeman accidentally shot self while showing off his service firearm, a radio report said Tuesday.”

The man suffered a gunshot wound in the left temple, after accidentally pulling the trigger of his service firearm during a drinking spree along P. Burgos St., Guadalupe Nuevo in Makati City (Philippines).

His drinking buddies and bystanders rushed him to the Makati Medical Center for treatment.

Now if this story was submitted to me for the contest it would surely win!  Think of it as something to “aspire” to (No, not seriously).

Only In Australia

An Australian man, Michael Leary, convicted of his seventh drunk-driving charge was spending about A$1,000 ($972) a week on beer (How was he not broke?).

He was heartbroken after a break-up (FROM 5 YEARS AGO!!!) and drowning his sorrows in alcohol (Apparently in this case it did not alleviate his depression well enough – Click Here For Previous Story).

He was not jailed as the judge noted Leary had quit drinking since his latest arrest (right), but he banned Leary from buying or even holding a beer for 12 months (This seems like the ultimate punishment for a man with this addiction!).

The judge even went so far as to poke fun at Leary’s favorite beer, Melbourne Bitter, in a part of the country where drinkers can be as loyal to beer brands as they are to football teams. 

The judge was quoted saying, “(That is) poor judgment on two counts there — drinking that much and drinking Melbourne Bitter.”

Now I take a few things away from this.  One, this man has a serious drinking problem, anyone who spends what was probably his entire weekly salary if not more on beer needs help.  I’m not sure simply “banning” him from holding a beer will do the trick.  That said, the judge took this case way too lightly.  He treated it like a joke. At least thats what the sentencing sounds like to me. In the US this guy would have almost certainly been jailed, or at least sent to rehab!

‘I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell’

… Is the title of the movie that will take the infamous best-selling memoir of Tucker Max to the big screen (This movie better be rated “R”).

Matt Czuchry, Jesse Bradford and Geoff Stults have all signed on for the project.  Czuchry will play Tucker Max, while Bradford and Stults will play Max’s best friends.

For those of you who do not know who Tucker Max is (If you are reading my website you really should) check out his website www.TuckerMax.com for some of his stories or better yet buy the book.

How NOT To Piss Off Your Ex

I was in Philadelphia this weekend visiting friends from college which of course means a LOT of drinking… And as we all know one of the side effects of drinking is “bad decisions…”

The first bad decision of the weekend was actually a sober one that set up the dominoes. The alcohol was just the finger that pushed that first one and got it all going:

In order of occurrence:

Bad Decision #1 – Inviting an “EX” in town for the weekend (any “EX”), in conjunction with inviting your good college buddies in town.

World’s Strongest Cocktail

Well, this one definitely requires more research, so please if you find something about the drink’s history, please let us know! It’s name is Aunt Roberta.

With eight and a half shots of liquor this cocktail seems to be #1. It still tastes good, apparently because of the flavored liquor in it. Read the rest of this entry »
