Ha ha ha! ...*thud* Hee he! That was great. I just hope they don't die of alcohol poisoning...

And for what it's worth, laughing that hard in a swiveling chair is not healthy. (rubs the side of her head)

Ah, but is it anything in life worth experiancing unless it's been turned into a drinking game somewhere? I've been thinking of turning my video game partys into drinking games.

>Drop the flag, take a shot
>Get sniped, take a shot
etc. etc. etc.

Sad thing is, I don't know if game play will improve or not after three bottles. hmmm.......

*giggle* Which button is the one you use to fire? *hic!* *gag*

LOL depends on how many people are playing, and what kind of drinker they are. If you're throwing down with three flyweights, just have 911 written backward on your forehead. :wink:

I'd probably be the first to pass out. I'm about as cheap a date as they get. I think i'd end up just pretending I'm drinking so I can engage in my one of my more enjoyable pasttimes: watching my friends make drunken idiots of themselves. >:)

Where as I have yet to enjoy such a game. Partly for not really having many frinds who drink, and partly for being a mix of 6'5", 240lbs, german, swedish, and scotch-irish. Alchol, water, it's all the same. Which can admittedly become highly amuseing at times.

Jebas....you're the kind of fellah that can take it straight all night and not even wobble. No fair. It doesn't even take half a shot to get me giggly. :-?

Question....

Does that mean that you get drunk on water or that you can drink a bottle of alcohol and not fee the effects? :wink:

If it's any consolation 2 or 3 shots is my limit.

Mmm... Ikea-drinking. The best type. ;)

At least their chairs are relatively easy to put together - screw part A into part B, put the cushion on, collapse into it. And take a shot.

You're not drinking the right stuff then. :)

I have too many friends who like to drink including one who is 6'5" 2-something in weight. He can do stuff that no one else will dare to like everclear and apple juice, but it's a pretty close contest otherwise. I can usually handle upwards of 10 shots before things start to get foggy. I'm 5'10" 150 lbs.

2 or 3 shots? Hell, I think I'm the only one I know that can get a contact buzz off alcohol.

Don't get me started on alchohol please....

BAILEY's IS NOT IRISH CREAM AND IT NEVER WILL BE.....
( i feeel like shooting myself in the head when people call bailey 'traditional irish cream... I cirtainly burst into tears every time people say it )

The only people who know what Irish Cream really is, are those with irish heritage... Trust me on this. Nothing you buy on a store will be even remotely close to the real thing!

oh. and 3 - 5 shots would be my average... Not that I've ever gone above 10.....

Dude, reading PvP is enough to make most of us wish for death even without the alcohol poisoning...

Bailey's is what's called a cream liquire. Basically they made something similar to Vodka, then add some cream. Leave it sit for a while, then flavour with something sweet (such as chocolate)...

Real irish cream is actually fermented buttermilk. (In northern Ireland they used to use goats milk, before they were able to get hold of cows). The fermented buttermilk would then be slightly thinned out, flavoured with malt or vanilla. The thing would then traditionally be served in the stlye of glass now reserved for Irish Coffee (An English invention in truth), and served with the kind of head you expect from a good beer!

And practically the only people who can create traditional Irish Cream are those with strong enough Irish Heratige to have been taught how...

(incidentally, there's a guy in Wales who's created 'Butter Beer' as per the Harry Potter series. The technique is the same as creating Irish cream, only he ferments it with yeast and sugar already in the milk. He then sells the alchoholic versions to adults, and makes a non-alchoholic version for kids)

I guess that's not something that can be created by leaving buttermilk in the refridgerator then.

Fermenting and 'allowing to go off' are ddifferent thigns unforunately. The trick o fermenting is keeping at a temperate high enough to prevent it going off without actually boiling it.. The best association would be to turn your stove on a third (or something like that), and leave a saucer of milk on the stove for roughly three months. Fermenting and 'going off' are nowhere near the same thing, and doing it with milk is harder than with other substances.
