Nope. I called you a btoborg. A btoborg is one who follows the ideology and leadership of the "great" btoborg1, also known as Bronson Toborg. He's
a sheisty one, for sure.
...anway, no, i dont think alcohol in general should be illegal. I'm talking about the high ratio of caffiene to alcohol in drinks that kids have no
idea is bad for you, should be banned.
Why? It's no different than having a few beers and then drinking a cup of coffee, or a couple Mountain Dews. Alcohol itself is really bad for you.
Kids shouldn't be drinking it anyway! But, alas, they do... banning Four Loko will not change anything in regard to kids achieving the level of
I don't know where you interpreted my argument as implying teens are going to stop drinkin alcohol.
Well, it's a good thing you weren't using that argument, then, because it's a very illogical one. What exactly will banning this substance do to
create a safer underage drinking environment
That's not the issue here, the issue is the combination of alcohol and caffiene that is extremely dangerous considering most teens don't stop at one
Really? I'm not a teen, and I don't stop at one drink either. However, I can tell you that alcohol itself can be extremely dangerous, as well as the
fact that adding caffeine to the cocktail does not really make it any more dangerous. How do I know this? I do it every single time I drink, and so
does everyone I know that drinks. I do not find that it increases the danger-level of the intoxication, and nor does anyone I know.
Kids understand what alcohol is, how it effects you, much more than they understand these drinks.
I think kids understand it pretty well, my teen friend. Alcohol gets you drunk, and caffeine makes you feel more alert. Considering alcohol makes you
less alert, what should we do? Oh, I have an idea... let's mix the two, and we can be drunk AND be more alert! Guy, alcohol alone is potentially very
dangerous. You cannot dabble in alcohol without adding a level of danger. I think you'll get over it. Nobody is going to stop for you.
And that's exactly why their targeted at teens, because they have no idea how dangerous it is. I'm sure that your gonna suggest i meant alcohol
should be banned though.
I believe that most teenagers knows how dangerous alcohol is. You are really blowing this Four Loko drink way out of proportion, as if it's some kind
of completely different substance which kills tons of people and is somehow different and more dangerous than alcohol. Its biggest contributing factor
to the intoxication IS the alcohol. Seriously, man. Sheesh.
BTW I am 19 so I can tell you from my experiecne, people think this drink is no different than regular alcohol, which is far from the truth. I can
also tell you that most my age have no understanding of the scientific basis behind this ban.
Yo, bro. I can tell you from my *extensive experience* that it is not that much different than "regular" alcohol. People have different tolerances
to different types of liquors and brews, at times. The caffeine is not
the *main contributing factor to the intoxication*: Alcohol is the main
contributing factor, my friend. So, what I think you are really against is teen drinking in general. I don't see how you could be against teens
drinking Four Loko alone due to its "danger! danger! level" without being against teens drinking alcohol in general.
Fangula, okay are you bronson okay buy?
