One of my British mates asked me the other day,"Jake, you drink a lot. Why do I get blackouts everytime I drink?" I told him, "Who cares, just enjoy them and make up a fun story for what you did during that time." I like to say I was in the Middle East carrying out a secret assasination for the CIA.

Scarily though, after his last drinking binge he woke up the next morning without any money but with a bag of cocaine in his pocket. Remember children, narcotics dealers and drinking binges do NOT mix. If you absolutely have to buy some coke do it before the bender. Your much less likely to trade your sister for an 8 ball that way.

Hitchhiking home with your buddy because neither one of you can remember where her car is (uhm, I think we parked it on a street somewhere, or something) is not fun. Parking on a severe downgrade and then having to force your car to reverse up it to get to the street is not fun, especially when you discover (several blocks away) that the reason the car balked was because you had the freaking emergency brake on. I do not do these things anymore. I make undrunk people drive me about.

Ah the classic missing vehicle DPAW. Reminds me of one of my favorites. I woke up on my living room floor surrounded by empty bottles of cider and a wide open liquor cabinet, nothing so unusual.

I'm supposed to go to a movie with a friend around 4pm. I make the phone call to make sure we're still on. So I walk out to the driveway and strangely my car is missing. This strikes me as somewhat odd as at this time I live 5 miles from a bar (the farthest I have
ever lived)... So I call back and inform him he will need to pick me up. "Why," he asks.
"My cars not here."
"Where is it?" he asks.
"It not in front of your house?" I say with confusion.
"No..."

I discovered to my astonishment that I had not been drinking with said friend the previous night, that was 2 nights ago he reminds me. Instead I had met up with several other people after leaving the radio staion with some bands I was partying with. I begin to think perhaps I had left my car at the radio station. I was wrong. We check a couple bar parking lots before locating it. Apparently after I left them at the first bar I met up with a girl I knew and some of her friends and they had given me a ride home. I had declared there would be a "party at my house" but I don't remember it... I was just happy my car hadn't been impounded.

From this week's Onion:

Woman Assures Friend She Has Blackouts From Drinking All The Time
COLUMBUS, OH—When Yolanda Franks expressed concern that friend Becky O'Neill couldn't remember the second half of an apartment-warming party Saturday, O'Neill assured her that she has blackouts all the time. "It's no big deal," O'Neill said Tuesday. "Sure, I had a bit too much too drink, but I got to work Monday fine. No need to worry." O'Neill added that she just shakes off her frequent blackouts, as she does the occasional unplanned pregnancy.

Fuckin' Blackouts

Post by Messenger »

Not the ones you're thinking of, but the electtric sort. A little while ago, I had a great and eloquent response typed up for a thread here. But, sometime between when I finished it and when I submitted it, the power went out, and my brillliance, or idiocy, or whatever in between,was lost.

Really, there are way too many power outages around here. I don't know what theey're doing, but they keep trying to improve things by making the power go out more than
"Well, good times come and good times go. I only wish the good times would last a little longer."

They are trying to control your mind. If you find yourself thinking of rhinocerouses and tacos at the same time, they've taken control of your mind.

Get out! Get out of your mind! The threat is coming from inside your mind!

Get a UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) for your computer. They cost about $40 at OfficeMax or anywhere like that.
