Drinking Goals?

Post by Oggar »

Do you guys still remember when you had drinking goals? Like I'm going to drink a whole bottle/case in one day type of stuff. Does anybody still have any drinking goal they've yet to accomplish?

Generally, I still try to keep goals. Proper motivation is the key:

1) Try to drink as often as possible.
2) Since the wife isn't crazy about me drinking by myself, either sneak one in or try and get her to join me.
3) Get blind drunk at least once a month (meeting nights = free beer), more if I can afford it.

I used to have single-night goals, but my bachelor party was the last such time. But now I must think of the broader picture. One of my newer goals is to run the gamut of drinks in my cocktail books and papers. That'll be pricey as many drinks call for at least one ingredient I do not have. Although this clashes with my other goal of growing my good whisk(e)y collection. Decisions, decisions...

My drinking goals are always the same:

Get the most fucked up for the least amount of money possible.
Still be alive in the morning.

in college there was a shitty pond with a bridge, goal was allways to puke off it. For some reason it only happened a few times. I mustve gotten distracted.

Pissing in the great rivers.
I have micturated into the Danube, the Rhine, the Loire, the Thames, the Don and the Dnieper. I also managed to urinate copiously into the Nile on an Egyptian holiday. Alas, the Amazon has, so far, escaped me.
It is important to have goals.

I used to keep an Excel spreadsheet and tap in whatever i'd boozed the night before. it's then tell me my average drinking for a tuesday, or my average pints per day or whatever. i kept it up for about 8 months. at the time i was putting an average 5.12 pints down a day...

No you wouldn't. You would have spent it on drinks.

Tsk, tsk. Never the goal, merely the end of the journey.

to drink at McSorley's. (thanks MDM)

to find a wife who always tries to keep up, even if she can't.

to drink ferociously, live to a ripe old age, and make those doctors eat crow.

to have bourbon in Kentucky, grappa in Italy, Scotch in Scotland, sake in Japan, sweet wine in Spain... etc.

on that topic, anyone from outside the states that can suggest native booze from countries around the world?

as a young buck, most of my drinking goals weren't that magnanimous. The trifector - three 40s in a night, has been pulled off with ease. Tha 2 211's Challenge, 2 40s of Steel Reserve 211 drank within 2 hours and 11 minutes, is another one that's been tackled. However, Steel Reserve is like fighting fuel in a bottle. After taking on tha 2 211's Challenge, my one friend Marc started to chide my other friend Boyle about his hot Irish aunt who they had stayed with in England last summer on a European vacation. Boyle had to be restrained from cracking Marc's head open with one of the empty Steel Reserve bottles.

Looking back, the real challenge of Tha 2 211's Challenge isn't the comsumption of 2 40s of Steel Reserve, 8.2% alcohol, since that much ABV is absolutely doable by most experienced drunkards. Although just handling the malt liquor taste of 2 Steel's is still a challenge for some, I think that the real difficutly of this task stems in not getting into a brawl, because anyone who has experience with Steel Reserve can tell you that it is fighting fuel, or at the very least will cause you to get very rowdy.

Surely can. And most of us have. But to refresh, Unicum - a bitter digestif with mildly hallucenogenic properties, Palinka (from which I take my moniker) - Clear fruit brandy, the good stuff is home made and 70% to 80% ABV. And then there's Absinthe :twisted:
