As for Guiness, how dare you! lol. There is a way to get drunk off it if you drink it right. 2 pints of Guiness, followed by a pint of larger, i dont know why or how, but it works, must be the bubbles as they say.edit on 1-8-2011 by Trolloks because: no one must slander the black nectar!

And while I'm having some fun, here's a famous British Isles pint from the Emarld Isle.
Looks a thousands dollars, but tastes like utter kak. You can down 15 pints of this and still put an IKEA flatpack together. What a waste of money!

Um do you read english? Or just have a problem with American english?
Or is this brits only dialog - if so, so, so terribly sorry . . .
What is the problem that I think Guinness is fantastic?
That I have asked about genetics and seasonal depression?
Do we need a translator?
By the way you are welcome to come to Disney World with your black sox and pasty skin.
Then I can splain it to you southern American style!
Snob much? Gee, share the Love.
Out of here now I'll leave to the Brits only to discuss their alcohol problem.edit on 1-8-2011 by LittleBirdSaid because: (no reason given)

I have a rather large *ahem* capacity for booze and guilty of consuming well above my recommended levels.
Thankfully though, you'll never find me barfing / stooping for a wee in the street or fighting like a wild women. I like a drink, I socialise like an adult and go home without drama. Unfortunately it seem's folks like me are in the minority.
Why I have no idea..
Let's face it we've always had old dears propping up bars sozzled in their cloth caps after a hard days graft, with their big bulbous noses and red booze busted capillaries in the days when they could enjoy a woodbine in a nicotine soaked haven. Now it's not so straight forward, those people and those places have gone and have been replaced by out of control young adults. Mind you, I don't mean to damn all the young - We've all been there at some point, we've all thought we could drink our peers under the table it's part of being young. However...
Booze isn't cheap unless you get the own brand tins of gnats pish in supermarkets (And you couldn't get drunk on that if you tried) - I'd like to blame the economic downturns, the jobless depression but I can't. I can't blame the majority of publicans - The main problem of our drinking / fighting weekend culture is the bloody idiots that run these pub cum nightclub filth and every local councellor who took backhanders to allow their license are a shocking drain on the police every damn time they open. Unlike the majority of pubs these offer the cheap shots, the horse trough of cocktails in an environment that resembles & feels like a battery farm. I'm not suprised they end up rucking.
Even in remote places, the country villages folks notoriously have drinking problems - I noted on the Isle of Lewis most folks got constantly #faced in the home likely through boredom.
Apart from the problems that arise in towns, perhaps things haven't really gotten any worse than they have always been, it's just reported more. We have always been a nation of drinkers and likely always will be whatever they do to try cut it down.
Way I see it is if you don't have enough self discipline to limit your alcohol intake than you fit right in there with the heroin, meth and coc aine heads. A worthless piece of trash
