Emob78: I certainly wouldn't want to operate heavy machinery... like a frigate or man-o-war.

Crackpot.756: I'm actually always kind of glad I don't have access to any heavy machinery (or firearms) when drunk. Guess the rest of the world should be as well - or at least people who live close to me.

On an unrelated note, I recently found out that AA has online meetings. How progressive is that!
Not that I condone it, but from my own experiences booze and guns aren't that big of a deal. Booze and automobiles are a totally different story. I don't know what the stats are, but I would pin my money on drinking and driving accidents and deaths far outweighing all of the 'have whiskey and gun, will travel' types.

Anyone drunk and acting foolish with a gun is going to find himself quickly disarmed, one way or another. A drunk behind the wheel can somehow convince totally sober people that he's capable of operating a vehicle. One would think that would be a deal breaker, but there's a great many sober people who are killed from being driven around by drunks. I'm not sure the same could be said for gun enthusiasts.

Er, I'd be more worried about shooting myself in the face or something. I don't go out much.
Also, guns aren't that common 'round these parts, last time I checked; I'm not sure how quickly someone would be disarmed. Although, with slower reflexes, maybe drunk people are easier to disarm. o_°

A gun is nothing more than a piece of machinery. The machine's operator is the key. In keeping with the topic of this thread, a gun is not all that different than booze. Some people can drink a fifth of whiskey and be just fine, while other people might drink one beer and get liquored up enough to try and start a fight with a police officer. All depends on the operator.

That baffles me more than anything. I don't feel bad for needing half a bottle to get drunk anymore.

(Also, I had to google "a fifth". The word "fifth" has stopped making sense in the process, which, as I have learned just recently, is called "Semantic Saturation". Yay for learning things!)

We Americans don't understand metrics. A 'fifth' to us is just an arbitrary concept to describe a metaphorical saturation point for alcohol consumption. a 'fifth' in reality for many could be anywhere between a pint or half a gallon - depending on various factors such as body mass, base intelligence, mood, or amount of midichlorians in the blood.
This thread is getting really neglected.

3 new flavors to try this weekend.

Leinenkugel grapefruit shandy, Czech Urquell Pilsner, Spaten Lager.
