SoT is dead right, especially where hard liquor is concerned. From my own experience, I've found that the buzz from drinking beer occurs in almost equal increments with each beer consumed, while the buzz from consuming hard liquor tends to hit all at once. I can feel the slight effect a single beer has on me, but feel nothing after a single shot of vodka, whiskey, rum, or whatever.

Most of the parties I've attended offered only kegs of beer, and I've always managed to limit my consumption at these parties to a level at which I am still quite capable of walking about, getting home, drinking several cups of water, and clambering into my top bunk.

At the parties which offered liquor, however, the story has been rather different on occasion. Jungle Juice, a blend of everclear (190 proof stuff), kool-aid and water, has in particular been my bane on several occasions. As the stuff is mixed up by the hosts in an unknown proportion, and sweetened up extensively with the kool-aid, it becomes damn near impossible to tell how much you've had after a while. I'd advise all of you to religiously avoid drinking Jungle Juice at parties at which it is offered. Stick with beer, or have liquor by the shot (keeping tally of each shot) and you'll have a much safer, and better night.

Here (UK) it's:
16 for sex and smoking (and driving a small tractor :P ),
17 for driving,
18 for everything else eg. drinking, voting, etc. Drinking is a bit hazy though because you can buy drinks with a meal at 16 and parents can give 5+ children drinks if they want, iirc.

I'm 17. I need to learn to drive.

I've found that, no matter what I'm drinking, the safest thing to do (aside from not drinking at all) is to drink slowly. When you start chugging, knocking down shots, etc., things can get very bad, very fast - before you know it.

Also, never drink champagne out of a solo cup.

You are right. You can drink much more without getting drunk if you drink slowly and put some food in your stomach.
ps. Happy Birthday Anand, it’s your 21st birthday so yes, try not to get intoxicated, but still drink and have fun.

Perhaps they were just making sure that I would receive their messages of congratulations while still in a sentient enough state to comprehend them. :P Thanks, guys.

Happy Birthday

by Wierd Al Yankovic

~Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.
Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.

Well, It's time to celebrate your birthday,
It happens every year,
Eat a lot of broccoli and drink a lot of beer,
You should be good and happy that there's something you can eat,
A million people every day are starving in the street!
Your daddy's in the gutter with the wrched and the poor,
Your momma's in the kitchen with a can of Cycle 4,
There's garbage in the water,
There's poision in the sky,
I guess it won't be long before we're all gonna die!

Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.
Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.

Well, What's the matter, little friend?
You think this party is the pits?
Enjoy it while you can,
We'll soon be blown to bits!
The monkeys in the pentagon are gonna cook our goose,
Their finger's on the button all they need is an excuse!
It doen't take a military genius too see,
We'll all be crispy critters after World War 3!
There's no where you can run to,
No where you can hide,
When they drop the big one,
We all get fried!

Come on, boys and girls, sing along, OK!?

Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.
Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.

Well, there's a punk in the alley and he's lookin' for a fight,
There's an Arab on the corner buyin' everything in sight,
There's a mother in the ghetto with another mouth to feed,
She said, everywhere you look today there's misery and greed,
I guess you know the Earth is gonna crash into the sun,
But that's no reason why we shouldn't have a little fun,
So if you think it's scary,
If it's more than you can take,
Then blow out the candles, and have a piece of cake!

Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.
Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.
Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.
Happy Birthday.
Happy Birthday, to you.~

And a pinch to grow an inch!
For Kel and Stug. Hope you had a good one.

P.S. As for my age... someone who didn't know me has recently said that I look like I'm 15. Meh, close enough. :P

Happy Birthday to Kelandon and Stughalf. :)

Be careful with a word, as you would with a sword,
For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,

I am 14, 15 in Spetember, even though people tell me I sound older than I am. nd considering I'm around 6 feet, they have good reason to.

Anyway,

Happy Birthday Kel, and the other one whose name I've already forgotten.

I wonder how Stug pulled up after the other nights festivites. Hopefully his arm is ok, unlike last time.

Kel, you deserve a big cake. Remember, your name is now Kylie. IMAGE(http://icechef.com/images/Food%20Pictures/9-26-04%20Birthday%20Cake%202.JPG)

You already gave them a cake and said farther up you didn't want to make another one. Change of mind for the good of the taste buds? :P
