Well since they locked my last thread I guess I'll just make a new one about drinking. What is your favorite drink? I'm a coke and rum person myself. I tried some apple flavored vodka my roommate had a couple nights ago and it sucked. I think the flavoring they use has lots of sugar in it and the combination of lots of sugar and alcohol is not a good mix. I'm not a big fan of those flavored drinks anyway. I prefer straight vodka if I'm going to drink it at all because I don't drink alcohol for the taste, I drink it to get drunk and get drunk fast.

One drink I'd like to try is called hubai saki, I think I spelled that right, it's a Japanese drink. You've probably heard of saki, well hubai saki is when they put a venomous snake in the jar of saki and shake it up. The shaking makes the snake angry of course and it will start striking at the inside of the jar, releasing its venom into the jar and it mixes with the saki. No it won't kill you unless you drink lots of it because the alcohol dilutes the venom. Anyway from what I've heard if you take just one or two shots of this stuff you'll be good for the whole night. So I've got to try some of this before I leave Japan, perhaps this weekend if possible.

Normally I just drink beer. Carlsberg if there's any. Actual drinks, I like a malibu (dunno if it's called so in English) and sprite. Also a drink of vodka, orange juice and red soda. You can use 50 60 % vodka and not taste it. It's great.

That's actually a filthy lie. Firstly American beer is like sex next to a river...it's fucking close to water. You can't really class that as proper beer. PROPER beer has a decent amount of alcohol.

Now it's true, Vodka contains a higher %age of alcohol. But do you drink Vodka by the pint? No, I didn't think so. The actual amount of alcohol consumed by a beer drinker and a vodka drinker in the same space of time is actually likely to favour the beer drinker.

you can't change the amount of alcohol in a beer.
you can change the amount of alcohol in a cocktail you make yourself.
3 oz 80 proof vodka and 4 oz of cranberry = a hell of a lot more alcohol than any beer.

You can also use the edit button. You've been here long enough.

Glad to hear you don't drink American beer. It's shit.

However...you're wrong. You can't change the amount of alcohol in a beer. But as I pointed out, you don't drink Vodka by the pint.

1 pint of beer=16 fluid oz. Which is two and a half of your drinks.

Guinness is 7.5%, Vodka is 40%. So a pint of beer contains 1.2 fluid ounces of alcohol, your cocktail about 2.8. That's not a HELL of a lot, that simply means I drink two pints to your cocktail and I'm sorted.

Given how expensive Vodka is compared to beer...I'd say you'd run out of money long before I did and thus I'd end up drinking more alcohol.

Plus most non-alcoholics go OUT to drink. You can't change the amount of alcohol a BAR serves you and trust me, your measures are a LOT smaller in a bar.

Anyway, I have all of you beat. I drink tequila shooters which are 80 proof and NO mixer. And I slam a LOT of those down because there's so little to drink and it's gone in a second. And I drink scotch dry as well and that's a minimum 80 proof, ranging up to 120 proof. And it's not gay like cocktails.

getting a 16oz import beer over here is about the same as a cocktail (granted, its only 2oz of vodka/gin, not the 3oz that i make when at home). both will run you about $4 or 5, depending on what beer/vodka/gin you get.

and calm down haz, you don't want to appear so manly all at once. you may hurt yourself.

The crucial words are "over here". A pint of Guinness in a bar is about £2.20. A DOUBLE Vodka and cranberry (which would make your 3 fluid oz) would set you back about £4.60. That's more than double.

Not manly...alcoholic. I confess to it though.

These are London prices, in the city. However New York prices, which I can compare them to, are ridiculously more expensive.

A single JD and coke cost me $11. Yes, ELEVEN. Even with the exchange rate that's still more expensive!

Anyway, we get ripped off royally.

Even if we drunk at home I'd be able to drink more for £15 than you could over here. A bottle of Vodka would set you back about £11-12, a couple of cartons of cranberry juice and you're set. For that I could get 15 Guinnesses. Out of that bottle you could make about 8 of those cocktails of yours. So I'd drink the exact same amount of alcohol, roughly, as you.

I just hate people saying Vodka has a LOT more alcohol than beer. It does, but only if you drink as much of it as the beer drinkers drink beer. And most people can't handle that much Vodka.

Now me...I used to drink it out of the bottle neat...but then I had a problem :p

My favorite drink is the raped virgin bloody mary.

You start with a virgin bloody mary...but then you hire the bartender to pick someone in the bar to smash a bottle of vodka over your head, most of the splash going into the glass. You fight whoever hit you with the alcohol until either you or him are on the verge of unconciousness. Then you stop and finish your drink.

Here's an observation for you: I didn't make fun out of your socialisation with the opposite sex retard. Read what I said. I was mocking your inability to take a joke. Which you've clearly demonstrated AGAIN.

And I could mention the words pot kettle and black. Given that in that little scenario you were the first guy on here to fall foul, remember?

The incident was also over a year ago. Get over it already. I have. Oh, and since then my socialisation with the opposite sex has been more than satisfactory, but thanks for your concern.

i can take jokes fine haz, but when someone like yourself keeps on beating the same dead horse of a 'joke', there comes a time when its nothing more than annoying and needs to be put to rest.

if you feel so inadequate in your own sexuality that you have to preach about drinking beer and shots of 80+ proof liquor and wear nothing but jet black steel toed workers boots in order to feel more like a male, then that is your problem, but please, let it go after a while...

Lol. Defensive? So what was your post then? Clearly anything but defensive, right? :err: Or are personal attacks just part of your "witty" repertoire now?

Of course I'm bound to be defensive when you choose to respond to a joke (which wasn't even about your sexual socialisations with the opposite sex) with personal comments.

Lol. Try reading the thread again. My last joke was that you couldn't take a joke, and my previous one was to point out that you didn't get what Jake was insinuating. I haven't called you gay since the last page!

Oh, and my sexuality's just fine mate. Unlike you I don't take the word "gay" as an attack, if someone called me gay I'd smile and shrug it off. I'll confess I got defensive because your last post hit a nerve...so I wonder...is your defensive nature because my comments hit a raw nerve for you?

haz, you get worked up so easily. i'd hate to see you under any real pressure. i am not defending anything in my posts. i remarked that you probably weren't the best person to have started the joke that you did and that your quest to convince everyone that you're a manly man out doing manly things is a bit over the top. stop explaining everything and trying to one-up everyone.

Hazzle
21-05-2006, 07:52 PM
Oh, and why's that? The joke I started was that you were gay. So unless you have any evidence to suggest I am, I'm not quite sure why I'm not well-placed to make that joke.

One-up everyone? No mate, I think it's you who's trying to do that. What, can't take a joke so you get personal?

Mate, I'm not worked up. If I was, you'd know about it, trust me. The people who've been around here a lot longer than you know what my temper's like when it's unleashed...it's not pretty.

Incidentally, it's not a quest to prove anything. I don't need to prove manliness, and if I did, this wouldn't be the way or the place to do it. I also don't happen to think that anything I've said is "manly"...it's called sarcasm.
