I'm still not entirely sure I see the point but then if I only ever did things that had points to them I'd have a much more boring life

I drink way too much when I'm at uni though, it costs me more money than I'm willing to really think about


Edit:

Just taking a look at the thread with the guy asking about pre-loading your fingers... jesus christ I dislike Pebber Brown immensely. Possibly the most irritating guitar teacher I have ever come across

This, although I tend to take too many substances anyway so I can't blame uni for all of it.

Thinking about it logically I can easily conclude that taking any drug (including alcohol) is a "waste" but then I remember that life isn't just about logic - You've got to enjoy yourself as well.

Is this where we talk about the sweet buttery tones of the MG30?

I don't really see the point either, I just really like fine craft beers.

I might start drinking more heavily though if the registrars office doesn't figure out how to fix my class registration problems. I call about the same issue every semester and it's never been permanently fixed.

Can't say I've ever done something crazy, I think about the dumbest thing I've ever done was try to jump on a bollard, completely miss and fall flat on my face. I woke up with some missing skin on my face so I couldn't exactly lie my way out of it

Ouch man, what issue is that? We always seem to have some issues with class registration at my uni but that's more to do with the computer system just being overloaded...

Man, I just cannot get along with whiskey, I have tried so hard! Much more of a cider man myself, there's some damn fine ciders out there if you look for them

What is cider? I'm in the US so I'm pretty sure we don't have those here.

You do but I have deep suspicions about any booze sold in the US to begin with; very little of it has a good reputation over here!

British people are really weird - I think cider means strong beer/malt liqueur? Cuz I bought somethin called cider at Fred Meyer and it just tasted like 211. And it gave me a nasty headache.

They sell stuff from all over the world here, I will agree the actual american brands are not very good, especially major brands like Coors, Miller and Bud and I can't stand american whisky. I'm all about scotch and irish whisky.

There are some great small brand beers. Lots of good micro brews here.

Oh silly American Cider is an alcohol brewed from apples. In a similar vein you also get perry which is brewed from pears, the term "pear cider" has become quite popular recently and it annoys me greatly

Cider tends to be comparable in strength to most normal beers and lagers (around 4-9% ABV) and varies in quality about as much too. Again, I wouldn't trust most ciders that you can get from big chain stores; like with beers the better stuff is usually made smaller scale. I have no idea where you'd get good cider over there in the US though

Yeah, small breweries are best from what I've heard; artisan types who take great pride in their craft. Nothing like something made by someone who really cares!

Cider is delicious. So is mead. And there is good beer in/from the US, you just have to look beyond Budweiser and Keystone Light. Rogue, Great Divide, Deschutes, The Pike, and Paradise Creek are some of my favorites right now.

Although I've had a thing for Wychwood Brewery Hobgoblin for like 6 months now. That stuff is so ****ing good.

Meh, I don't drink beer, lager, ale or stout anyway

Don't get along with mead so much either, it's not horrible but I don't think I could drink very much of it, it's a weird combination of sweet and booze that doesn't seem to work for me.

I agree with you on it being a little too sweet. I only drink mead on occasion at the tavern with my friends. My buddy has a drinking horn that makes you feel all medieval when you drink mead from it.

In the US, a cider would be considered a girly drink. I wouldn't judge you though.

It's fine, you're from the US so you probably can't drink properly anyway
