Food is a lazy piece of shit that expects us to do everything.
Shame, shame.

Yeah, Andrew and I were the highest posters there. Though I just consulted the stats spreadsheet and Ian was a very close third to me, and Vazza posted heavily too.

So I'm trying to flesh out the section on drink and drugs (and a couple of other non-sex things work their way in here). Tell me what you think of these questions, and what should be added:

65. smoked tobacco?
66. smoked pot or hashish?
67. abused legal medication?
68. used cocaine or speed?
69. used LSD, PCP, Ecstacy, heroin, or mushrooms?
70 .used four or more recreational drugs in one night?
71. grown or produced illegal substances?
72. been arrested?
73. been convicted of a crime?
74. got a tattoo and/or piercing, excluding standard ear piercings?
75. had an alcoholic drink?
76. tried at least five different kinds of alcoholic drinks?
77. been drunk?
78. … before 5pm?
79. had a hangover?
80. used alcohol to lower an MOS's resistance?
81. lost consciousness due to drinking?
If you need some help comin up with more questions about drinking, well then I might be your man.

Unfortunately, though, a good amount of my drinking experience centers around stereotypical American college drinking activities.

Some questions could be...

taken a shot of alcohol?
drank more than 6 beers in one night?
drank more than 12 beers in one night?
drank beer from a keg?
tapped a keg?
done a keg-stand?
done a beer bong/shotgunned a beer?
played a game of competitive alcohol drinking?
vomited due to alcohol consumption?
vomited in a public place due to alcohol consumption?
passed out in public due to alcohol consumption?

I don't know if these are good at all...just throwin 'em out there.

iTunes started playing Billy Idol's "Dancing With Myself". You know what that song's about, right? Well, if not, I'll give you a hint. Think "Longview". Anyway, the lyrics go something about a "mirror's reflection"...and my random-ass brain...pictured a certain lazy Irish drummer, standing nude in front of a mirror, dancing with himself to the song. Singing along, too.

That was probably oversharing. But my mind cannot be trusted when it doesn't have enough sleep.

I can't decide...whether to laugh my arse off or be scarred for life.

Ooh, some of those are really good. Competitive drinking, vomiting, and passing out in public are absolutely in. Must admit I'm entirely unfamiliar with the meaning of these three, though:

tapped a keg?
done a keg-stand?
done a beer bong/shotgunned a beer?

I'm not so sure if we should do beer-specific questions, though, simply because we could then probably come up with a range of specific questions for all kinds of alcohols (I could do a number of wine snob questions) and overwhelm the test. Things that are general and can be applied to any alcoholic consumption, whether the person is a beer or a wine or a rum or a whatever drinker strike me as preferable.

Incidentally, I've just added this one of my own:

- bought alcohol underage, or been served alcohol at a licenced establishment while underage?

I apologise. Hopefully, that's the only random thing it does this morning.

Oh, no, scaring and scarring Superthreaders is a time-honoured tradition. Though personally, I'd prefer ... not that drum-playing individual to be involved in the process.
