    I have a theory (ha ha) about alcoholism.

    You start with a social notion that alcohol is cool. You go out and drink your ass off. Horribly drunk, you spend the night vomiting into the toilet, swearing that you will never touch a drop of alcohol again and pass out. The next morning you remember nothing and conclude that if that's the case, yesterday must've been AWESOME! WOO WOO LETS DO IT AGAIN!!

    Ah, but at least in my case (and that of the people I know), we tend to be around other people when that happens...people who call us the next day and fill us in on what we've forgotten.

    You obviously don't come from Ireland where that sort of drunkenness is commonplace and is making it awfully difficult for me to type on a keyboard, dude... we need to learn pool or socialising without beer or something... probably option b cause the Irish are still pretty good at pool when we're drunk.

    Apparently I don't seem to grasp the edit function so apologies for the double post.

    Most of them appear to think that drinking beer and Smirnoffs make them cool.

    Nope, I'm primarily Russian...born and raised in America, though.

    But why without beer? Pool would probably be more entertaining here with alcohol.

    Ah... Well you see the question you nasked is complicated and as many facets... not really, I'm just tryin' to sound intelligent.

    To start, the main Irish Pub game is pool. A lot of us get good at a young age (Well, not a whole pile, just the ones who don't want to get twisted while doin nothin but talkin shite... we want to test our limits). So, the plateau for good pool playing is about 4 to 5 pints. anything more or less and you look like Naruto tryin' to do something cool which enevitably doesn't pay off. On a good night you're superman and can win money from all comers and no matter how many pints you've had, you still look like Itachi owning Sasugay. It's a question of indurance!

    I don't think that the punishment fit the crime like most other ppl have said. Honestly though, I don't really care either way about drinking. It has its evils and virtues.

    And now you've got trouble! Right here in RIVER CITY! That's trouble with a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for POOL!!
