Ok folks.  Back to the booze.

I personally have been drinking more wine lately.  A good Pinot Noir with a rare steak is awesome.

    Being Mormon, I don't drink.


    That being said... Being Jack Mormon, I prefer dark beers, Amber Bock and Wheat Beers, Ports, Bitters, Stouts, and Guiness.  I've not been drunk since '92 at a certain NCO club and wont do it again.

    A note on alcoholism...

    I've got it on both sides of my family.  My mother used to tell me stories about how she as a little girl would have to pull her mother's head out of her dinner plate.  She was from a rich family, country club alcoholism you would say.  Even today, my grandmother on that side, well it's pointless talking to her after 10 in the morning.   She's politely drunk by that point. Every day.  Alcohol, along with perscription drugs written up for himself (he was a doctor) screwed up her husband. But he's dead now, and that's a good thing. He was not a nice man.

    My father can't handle booze at all. Two cheap beers and he turns into a dumbass.  My great grandfather on my father's side was a raging alcoholic as well.

    I've seen my friends be complete idiots with booze (mixing Redline with Wild Turkey, now that was an interesting night but even funnier day after).  Hell right now I'm talking to my best friend who's down in houston completely s___faced on jim beam and an entire bottle of wine.  Then again, that happens pretty often.   Thankfully he's got a pretty hard gut for booze.

    Let me just say this: even seeing the negative effects of it, I don't care one way or the other if someone drinks.  It's not drinking, but letting something like booze take hold and ruin you as a person that I despise.  But that could be with anything.  I don't mind if you shoot up black tar heroin on occasion, but if it becomes an addiction then it's a bad thing.

    I don't drink much because 1) I only like really expensive stuff and 2) I'd rather spend money on other things.

    If you don't have to work tomorrow, try an Irish Car Bomb- You'll need a large mug and a double shot glass for this one. 

    Fill the mug almost full of a good Irish stout, then mix a shot of Irish cream and Irish whiskey in the shot glass.  Drop the shot glass in the beer, and down the hatch.  Three or four of those should do you for the night......... ;D

    Anyone notice the ads are tailored to the content in the threads?  I'm  :rotfl at the 12 step program ad for substance addiction as I scroll down.  These ads are too smart!

    Looks like this happens with all threads.  But sometimes they are really random and/or weird.

    Ok, firing this one back up after a week or so.

    Mojito's ROCK! If you're ever in Puerto Rico (see "Outbreak's Caribbean Tour 09" thread in General) you have to get a Mojito...at every restaurant or bar you walk in to. They're all different, and they're all amazing. I've been doing a "Super Size Me" style Mojito Tour. I order a Mojito everywhere I go and if they ask "would you like a double," or "would you like a frozen Mojito" or any question like that, I say yes. Only I haven't come close to death like the guy in "Super Size Me." I am loving every sip of it.

    Mojitos are good.  Unfortunately though, they're real easy for a bartender to screw up.

    Did Outbreak actually do something there?  Or did he just go for the hell of it?  Maybe only King Barack's tax evading High Court should foot the bill.

    That's just a boilermaker with Irish cream.

    Traditional boilermaker:

    Pint of lager, drop in a shot of whiskey in the glass.

    Me personally, i can't stand American booze.  Makes me choke.  (note, i have not tried Sam Adams yet :D )   OTOH, i go to germany and the rest of europe ever few years, to visit family, and i have obtained a taste for certain German and French wines.  And German/English beer.  (yum yum)    Europien drinking laws rock for us minors. O0  I do not have any intention to get drunk though, there is no point, and i have too many guns around for it to be safe.

    My favorite beer is Dos Equis Amber.  German beer from Mexico.  Mmmmm.

    I absolutely hate the green-bottled lager however.
