Drinking, As a Way of Life

I believe there are things in life that are really undervalued. Take drinking for example, most people would think it's just a social activity. Some would even claim it's unhealthy!*cough*blasphemy*cough*. But if you look at it this way:

"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff (Cheers)

This is so right, on so many levels that I can die peacefully now. Thanks Sensei Munqy for showing me the light. I am, again, forever indebted.

...the Purple Wet Monkey level? But this can't be?? There is no record of anyone teaching this level for the last 700 years?!

Oh this is brilliant! Seriously - look I have never drank, never even tried it though we have a mega bar back home... (can you imagine not once the temptation pushed me to TASTE it) But I do understand that it is nice to get out sometimes & have a couple of drinks & feel enlightened & lifted - what I totaly object to is the puking in people's cars, the talking shit you'll regret, people that get violent...etc.

I can not hide the fact, that even though I do not understand the drunk's sense of humour or trail of thoughts, I have had some of the most interesting conversations with good friends in a bar as they drank & I played the attentive listener!

Cool post - & the comments are funnier too - cheers!

Man, puking in people's cars, bathrooms, living rooms or beds is annoying off course. But always remember it can be worse.

*Fesh looks at aku, flashback to Barcelona New Year Eve 2005.

Oh it can get worse, but that's another post :D

...and on a totally different note...
