placebo effect?

Post by stepheybaby »

I personally have seen people drunk off non-alcoholic beverages. I'm just interested/bored to know if this has happened anywhere else where people have been fooled by their scences.

I call them idiots.

I never trust a person that can't booze it. Something about what they are hiding, what they are afraid to unleash - the aforementioned nonalcoholic drinkers - their deepest desires, their demons, their monkey, is asking to be released - but they forbid it. Shame, shame on those that oppose their monkey! Never trust them!
Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.

It will hurt less if you don't struggle.

I think this is a form of self-hypnosis and an act not to be disparaged. Is it the ingestion of alcohol that singularly releases my inhibitions? No. The very act of drinking is an expression of my desire to free myself from the restrains of social conformity. In actively seeking inebriation I willingly succumb to my own desires and intent. Is that wrong?

Rumor has it that after about five rums or scotches, certain bars will use a scothc glass that has been sitting rim down in a shallow tray of scotch or cheap hooch, and just be filled with coke.

I can always taste the scotch, I usually have doubles (if the bartender isn't scared by potential lawsuits under nazi-ass anti drinking laws in NSW, where doubles make the bartender more cuplable for your irresponsible actions)

Some Bourbon Street bars have been known to sneak vodka in the beer to loosen the purse strings of unsuspecting potential big spenders... :roll:

Little Joe, shrink your damn avatar or pick another one.

I read about a study re: drinking non-alcoholic brew and getting drunk, but I can't remember what magazine it was in.

"Oops there goes another year - there goes another pint of beer."
"I drank one and it turned to four. On the floor and I drank more. Now I'm never seeing you again!"

its called drowning, that euphoric feeling you gewt just before you die.

i had a friend who was getting a little out of control at the bar one night, and not in an entertaining way, and when i suggested he slow down before he goes home wearing handcuffs, he got all beligerant and screamed, "get me a fucking beer!" so i went to the bar and ordered myself a beer and ordered him an o'doul's which i asked the bartender to pour in a glass. he never knew the difference and it actually calmed him down. never in my wildest dreams would i have ever thought that o'doul's would have been good fpor anything.
are you insane officer, of course that beer can's empty

I have a newfound respect for vegetarians. With all the good enjoyable things they cut out of their diets, they still leave in alcohol.

Non-alcoholic beers make not a Drunkard

Yeah, drinking too much water is NOT good. You can die from an electrolyte imbalance, much in the same way that you can die from dehydration. It's just the other end of the spectrum.

Joe:] "Yeah."
[M2:] "Well, it's probably this beer.
This beer I'm drinking, man. I must be drunk off it or something.
Ya know, I had about eighteen of them, man."
[Joe:] "Whoa, oh really!?"
[M2:] "I'm just..wasted off 'em."
[Joe:] "That's a lot of beer for a man to drink."
[M2:] "Man, I gotta pea pretty soon, man."
[Joe:] "You didn't dump 'em out in the woods, didja?"
[M2:] "No..no..no.. I drank all of them."
[Joe:] "Right, yeah. I saw you..that's good. Hey didja eat today?"
[M2:]"No, I'm on an empty stomach."
[Joe:] "Whoa, you must be ..yea.. extra buzz for you."
[M2:] "..And that's why I'm so wasted off it man, it's like I'm seeing things, man."
[Joe:] "Yeah, you can hardly stand, man."
[M2:] "You should take my car keys, cuz I can't drive, man."
[Joe:] "Right, right."
[M2:] "I can barely walk."
[Joe:] "Hey man, you better open those eyes up, they're half shut."
[M2:] "There's two of you, man. I can't see anymore, man, I'm blind!"
[Joe:] "Right.. I got the beers, huh? I'm the man, right?"
[M2:] "Yeah, you are the man."
[Joe:] "Say it. Say I'm the man."
[M2:] "Yer da man!!"
[Joe:] "Okay, well that beer.."
[M2:] "Yeah?"
[Joe:] "There was no alcohol in that beer."
[Pause]
[Joe:] "That was non-alcoholic.
So..uhh..again, I'm gonna have to bust you on this one.
You're lying."
