come on the loser thing was like a highschool level joke lol.


kinda thought we could all get a laugh being older and thinking about how redic it was to be considered a "loser" because you weren't self destructive.

Oh, I wasn't actually bothered by it... just pointing out it doesn't really make you a loser if you don't drink.

Besides, you know I am the anti-joke chicken around here half the time... :P

Those who don't get drunk, it's not a negative, but not a positive either.


Sounds like they aren't drinking enough, then. It doesn't apply to everybody, but there can definitely be a benefit.

A definite benefit to becoming drunk? Yeah, you're full of s*** on that one. Medically, socially, physically mentally/psychologically... no benefit. Excessive drinking has repeatedly been shown to cause (or worsen) depression, it damages your liver and other organs, it impairs clear thought, it makes you unpleasant to be around, it makes you extremely dangerous on the road, you're more likely to have accidents due to loss of coordination...

Even just from a medical perspective alone, acute alcohol poisoning can kill you if you drink too much. But not even just that - too much "social" drinking can really f*** you up. Several months ago, I worked the bloodiest CPR call I have ever run. The patient was unconscious on the floor, no pulse or breathing. We started doing CPR, and immediately we started getting fountains of blood shooting out of her mouth with every compression. There was blood *everywhere* - 5+ foot radius around her on the floor, spattered on the counters, walls, etc.

Turns out she had esophageal varices. That's lesions that form in the throat, which cause loads of extra blood vessels to form, and when one of these rupture, it can fill your lungs so you literally drown in your own blood, in addition to continuously bleeding out and losing more blood volume than your body can handle. This condition is a result of drinking too much alcohol over time. She wasn't a "drunk"... just a social drinker, and she stuck primarily to wine, which is supposedly the "healthy" type of alcohol. She didn't make it.

Maybe you can explain to her husband how she just wasn't drinking enough for it to have benefits for her.

alcohol changes the chemicals of your brain and makes you depressed.

Y'all remind me of one of my roommates at my first college. Guy had an ulcer from drinking before he was 18, and while he was at DeVry he cheated on his girlfriend from back home with two other girls. At the same time. They were roommates, also at DeVry. -_-

Trumpkins continue to embarrass themselves; news at 11. My favorite part was when that idiot confused current trend polling with projection polling - always cracks me up!
