Personally, I think alcohol is a poison.  It just takes more alcohol than cyanide to kill you.

That being said, I'm a big fan of mildly carbonated drinks, like Mexican sodas.  Nothin' like chillin' on a hot day with a bottle of tamarind-flavored Jarritos to cool ya down.  Not that everybody likes it, but that there's nothing like it.

Practically any compound can be harmful in too large doses; ask any diver what happens if you get too much oxygen in your air supply.

That said, ethanol, in suitable doses, produces effects that some people find desirable. Other people may find these effects (in themselves or in others) undesirable. Below the toxicity limit, the whole thing is pretty much a matter of taste.

well, i rarely drink alcohol for fun except those times when i WANT those desired side effects (at which i consume just about everyhting i can lay hands on - from beer to a self manufactured killer coctail straight to Absinthe 70%... man does that stuff burn!). barring that, usually a smirnoff ice - it's got a nice taste to it, you don't feel the alcohol and it gives a mild wooziness...

I drink alcohol on an annual basis: one glass of champagne (if I bother to down the whole glass at all) on New Year's. Other than that, can't stand the stuff.

I also swore off soda (except every so often, when I'm out to lunch or something) a couple of years back, since I was starting to develop a bit more of a paunch than I would like. All that sugar can really increase the size of your gut if you're not careful, which makes it sort of like beer without the vile taste, awful stench, idiotic behavior, and brain-crushing hangover if you overindulge.

I guess that makes my beverage of choice seltzer. With a bit of lime for flavor, when possible. Otherwise, I usually drink water, or on rare occasions, tea. That would be tea straight, no milk, no sugar, no nothing added.

Draxas:
just out of curiosity, what do you do when you feel like you need to let off some steam? mine, it's usually the gym or drinking and clubbing.

You know, a few years back, I'd have rambled on about beer and drinks of all sorts... Nowadays, I'd just say wine. I rarely drink anymore, mostly just wine with dinner if we've cooked something really nice during the weekend with my girlfriend. I suddenly feel very old.

EDIT: And looking through the thread, I notice I apparently made it. That's a blast from the past alright. this is from right aroudn the time the Cafe came into existence. Hello old me.

You should all drink more, 'cause if you give up on alcohol, you give up on sanity. Look at the muslim world, explosions and jihadis. Look at china, cultural revolution and commies. Look at america (we drink do we? ever tasted our beer? I rest my case) mcdonald's and the pavement parting as ones mass is distributed into it, during our signature lumbering waddle. We can now see the unnatural balance that soberness has created in our global society.

Do to my self hatred, I don't really drink. But there is still time for the rest of you. Anyhow, the best drinks are those that don't taste much different when they don't have any happy juice in 'em. Like virgin marries, with lots of spice, or various sweet icy things.

Vodka, whiskey, the stuff you put in your car, those are all for those who can't taste anything anyway, because they're too drunk.

Uugh! i can't stand whiskey! anything is better than that! i'd rather drink absinthe (the 90% one!) and i can taste vodka when i'm drunk! (so seldom this days... Embarrassed) it's just that it still tastes awful!  Wink

Well not everything in life tastes good, but that doesn't mean you quit. I don't care what kind of athlete you are, because it doesn't matter what the sport is, what really makes a difference is heart. You don't think a sour pickle would stop a competitive eater, do you? They too know what it means to stare queasiness in the face and say "You will not take me down, I am stronger than vomit!"

That's the kind of attitude you need as a drinker, be it for competition or otherwise.

Well, it pays to draw the line at high explosives and fluids that can dissolve diamonds and quartz crystals. Wink

Yeah, I've got a 21st birthday coming up in a few months. I am going to get absolutely tanked off my ass. Also, a great strategist named Zhuge Liang once said that if you want to see a man's true nature, get him drunk. Guess that's bad news for Mel Gibson, but celebrities are all jackholes anyway.
