The Joys of Public Drinking

A.K.A. more reasons to avoid the barscene:

1.) Drunks are DRAMA. Whether they mean to be or not. Comes with the territory, unavoidably so.

2.) It’s expensive. You’re paying a high premium for the social atmosphere itself. The alcohol is far cheaper if purchased at a grocery store or gas station and taken home. Consider the average cost of a beer at a bar: $3 for a 16-oz. (or less) draw. Add $1 for tip. Multiply that by 4-6 on any given outing. Now, multiply that by however many outings per month. Adds up quickly. (And that’s not even factoring in the cost of shots.)

3.) You’re subjected to others’ musical tastes (and jukeboxes have become very expensive as well, many now charging $1 per song). Any day I manage to get through without listening to modern country (pop) music is a good day. Or the latest rap music.

4.) Idiots abound. The barscene serves as a refuge for some of the least responsible and most obnoxious persons out in society, especially after 10pm. Fights break out. Drinks get spilled. Stupid comments are made, especially by those seeking hook-ups. And arguments can and do occur over the most trifling matters, including sports teams and random trivia. As one bartender said to me in recent months: his job winds up feeling like babysitting adults with mental problems.  lol

5.) Avoiding DUIs/OWIs is a high-risk game. Cops prowl around waiting for barhounds to drive off. The only way to avoid this is to befriend someone who doesn’t drink who’s willing to drive you home (good luck with that) or to pony up even more cash for either an Uber or a cab ride. Walking home would also be a viable option if not for risking public intoxication charges (a favorite routinely doled out by police in this city).

6.) Dangers to one’s health and safety. Setting aside concerns for our livers and kidneys, there’s all sorts of other risks we take while drinking out in public. Like falling down. Steps are a bitch some nights. Or pissing off a hothead and getting knocked out (witnessed that happen to a guy fairly recently and, once down, other bar patrons began filming his unconscious body with their phones, snickering about posting up the footage on SnapChat — how lovely). Not to mention the number of brain cells we’re probably burning off on a regular basis even while managing to remain upright and otherwise uninjured.

7.) Gossip is the norm. The only saving grace there are drunk people’s tendency to not remember all the details. But then the stories just wind up morphing into fantastic fiction, like a garbled game of telephone.

8.) Public drinking is directly linked with impulsivity. Already have impulse control issues while sober? Drinking is guaranteed to magnify that! Perfect way to wind up saying the wrong thing to the wrong person, spending more money than you planned to, or thinking that booty call with a stranger is a good idea. Been there, done that (especially in years prior). Got the t-shirt and all the medals on that one. Waking up with regrets isn’t much fun.

9.) Hangovers suck. Sipping a few brews at home while trolling the internet is one thing, but out in public we have the added pressure of drinking among others, plenty of whom want others to share in taking shots. Can feel difficult to resist, especially when the shots are bought for you. I do believe Hank Williams Jr. was right about how hangovers get to hurting more than they used to — oh joy, so much to look forward to in years to come. Nothing like waking up with a raging headache and foggy eyesight and needing to go about your workday in such a condition. Then we discover that one cure for a hangover is simply to have another drink (after work). Oy. And the cycle continues…

10.) Bar food only tastes good when you’re drunk. Any other time you’d likely avoid it like the plague. Another waste of money on crap calories that tends to leave you with regrets the next day.

11.) Political discussions are discouraged. Even private conversations among relatively quiet patrons who are keeping it calm and friendly. Why? I don’t know. Guess it’s viewed as likely to instigate an argument. The notion of pubs as Public Houses has gone to the wayside in American society apparently. But you can still openly feud over sports, sans the stigma.

12.) Beer Goggles are a real phenomenon, and so is Beer Ego. She looks better after you’ve had a few drinks, AND, thanks to liquid courage, you now have the cojones to saunter up and tell her that — boldly, blatantly, without apology, despite swaying and slurring in the process. And if she turns down your advances, well, she must be some stuck-up broad deserving to be told that too!

13.) Dude, where’s my car? Where are my keys? Where’s my debit card? How much money did I spend last night? How did I get home? How did I land in this ditch? (All legitimate questions after a night of heavy drinking.)

*Pulling from my own experiences and others’ in compiling this list.

“Comedian @GeorgeLopez Does To Disrespectful Black Chick What Everyone Should Do To Them!”

“Bitch, how you got a whole motherfucking crockpot in your pants?” LOL I saw that video footage where the black woman had stolen a pan and put it down her pants. Was unreal. Can’t believe she thought she might actually get away with that crime.

Uncle Hotep then chimed in:

“God Bless America”

Love this guy’s channel!  laugh_smilie The first half is too funny!

american_smilie

Very sad about Millennial Woes though. Heard about some of that for the first time this past week after not having kept up with his channel in quite a while. Hypocritical cowards is what those doxxers are. It’s true that MW didn’t advocate for violence toward others outside of necessary self-defense, so far as the many hours of footage from him I’ve watched over time has demonstrated to me. Hence why I like the man. Doesn’t matter if he is a white nationalist or sympathetic to those who are. He has a right to his beliefs and ideas just as black nationalists and others do, so long as they aren’t calling for going on the offense and initiating unwarranted violence. I occasionally watch and have subscribed to a couple black nationalists as well, because learning other people’s viewpoints interests me. This is what freedom of speech looks like. The limitation lies with actively inciting and promoting violent criminal offenses to occur. That’s the line. MW didn’t cross it, so far as I’ve ever seen. The protester who punched the Trump supporter putting out the fire in that video DID, as did those who openly and unambiguously encouraged folks to behave that way.

People know better. They just don’t care about holding this sort of flagrant double-standard. Fine for them since it suits their cause, at least seemingly and in the short run. If the table reversed we all know they’d be crying up a storm, playing victims to the hilt, calling for those involved to be charged with “hate crimes.” Naturally. Nevermind fairness and justice and equality under the law. Bah! Democrats aren’t happy, so it’s time for them to revert to the modus operandi: “By any means necessary.” Because, ya know, the ends justify the means, right? Why wouldn’t they? No chance of a backlash to this sort of bullshit tactic. Right?  straight_face

Idiots doing more damage to their own cause than anyone else possibly could hope to. Jerks on parade…

It’s funny, but it’s also kinda depressing too. Wondering what people are aiming to push others toward, and why. Do they crave retaliation? Do they mistake everybody else as being too weak to stand up to their aggressive displays? Do they really think such antics are likely to change hearts and minds in their favor? Really? Do they imagine the rest of society to be too stupid and inept to offer an effective counter to their bullshit shenanigans? Sounds like a naive assumption. I wouldn’t put money on that bet.

Plenty of folks are getting sick of being pushed around. Everything personal has become political — arguably to the point where the personal can’t just be personal (and only personal) anymore. But that’s a topic for another time.

Anyway, Count Dankula is spot on in that video. The dude cracks me the hell up!

Wish coming together and building a better future were possible, but no two of us can hardly agree on anything anymore. Sad but true…

Getting acquainted with Count Dankula’s channel

New channel I just stumbled across called Count Dankula:

That was titled “How Many Genders Are There?” lol Too funny. Paused at 5:38: “Demi-vapor” and “egogender” sound like the ultimate “special snowflake” gender assignments of them all.

And this is what I mean about the social sciences not being full-on true science. They can’t be. They’re too subjectively-oriented by their very nature. They more appropriately should be referred to simply as “social studies,” though I’d also argue that all fields differ and vary across a gradient from “hard” to “soft” science/studies. Saying this as a social sciences/sociology major (criminal justice minor) who graduated 8 years ago with a bunch of worthless student loan debt. uh_oh I continue to appreciate sociology and psychology and anthropology and various other “social science” fields, but they still aren’t true hard-core science. They may utilize scientific methods at times, but, depending on the field (as they do vary), not much of their data or conjecture is directly backed by falsifiable research. That’s how social theories differ from scientific hypotheses. And that’s fine, but not let’s not equate the two as identical in nature and value.

“The Doxxing Of Millennial Woes”:

Sad to hear that happened to Millennial Woes. Don’t agree with a good many of Woes’ expressed views either, but that doesn’t matter. He still didn’t deserve to be targeted this way for simply expressing his opinions online. Made to leave his country? Damn.

“The Joy of Danking”:

As a life-long Bob Ross fan, I approve of that video.  rainbow2

“Nazi Pug : Update #2”:

Weird that the local newspaper would take interest in that man. Very strange. Do they have nothing better to focus on than random people expressing supposedly unpopular opinions and humorous and sarcastic views?

“Eating Ice Cream Is Gay”:

LOL!

“Hey MTV Gr8 Race B8 M8”:

“That’s Racist”:

Appreciate that last one particularly right about now.

“Don’t Work In Call Centres [RANT]”:

LOL! Worked at call centers as a teenager and hated that shit too. Didn’t last long. Such a sucky job. And it sounds like it’s even more off the hook in Scotland. Damn. That truly sounds like it sucks! Nit-picking corporate bullshit I cannot tolerate.

“Nazi Pug : Update #1”:

Wow. Didn’t know we was subjected to all that. All for expressing views others took issue with on youtube?? Quite obvious jokes at that! Geez…

“triggered MGTOW #1”

That was ShoeOnHead and Armoured Skeptic’s video response to a video from the so-called “MGTOW” Paul Wilson.

I am familiar with Paul Wilson from my own youtube channel’s video comment threads. Total waste of space that guy is. Interesting to put a face to a name though.

When people defend “MGTOW” categorically, dudes like this spring to mind. I’ve stated many times over the last few years that the MGTOW concept sounds useful, at least in part in terms of self-development and determining your own values instead of accepting all that’s handed down by greater society. However, some take it to seriously weird extremes, like this Paul guy, and he’s certainly not alone in twisting the notion of MGTOW into a sad and sick farce (at least that’s how it can look to the rest of us outsiders observing this internet phenomenon). Hence why I place quotations around the acronym “MGTOW” — because many, if not most, who claim to belong to it most certainly don’t appear to be going their own way or doing anything constructive with their time and efforts, unless bitching about feminists incessantly and deriding all females online now counts as productivity. uh_oh

Anyway, just felt like sharing that video of theirs on here since I stumbled across it fairly recently.

“Feeding The Trolls 92: Roosh V” (plus my response)

Cute Fuzzy Weasel is a dork, but I happen to like dorks. Prefer guys like him heads and shoulders above any and all pick-up artists, that’s for sure. Having watched several of his videos over the last year or two, Weasel’s humor is playful and cheeky, not mean-spirited or below the belt. And unlike Roosh, he doesn’t harbor deep, unabating resentment toward women for adapting to modern life.  (How dare we! WHORES!! lol)  Thankfully, there remains a broad, diverse, and infinitely more alluring world outside of that strange little online circle-jerk known as the “manosphere.”

Still spitting in manospherians‘ direction since they never cease clamoring on about the unique evils of us womenfolk. As if members of one sex are automatically more prone to being more cruel than the other. But biases abound and some people do everything within their power to shut out any information that doesn’t confirm what they wish to believe were true, especially when they’re bound up with like-minded others in affiliation under a banner for some political/social cause. If that’s not in itself viewed as yet another manifestation of so-called “social justice” warring, then apparently the definition is being skewed in order to accommodate select groups who refuse to take a long, hard look in the mirror. Said that before and will keep saying it.

Spoken as a true American woman. Flip-flop-wearin’, comfy cozy loungin’, late-night pizza-munchin’ and all.   american_smilie

Now it’s time to get back to work.

“When Keeping it Real Goes Wrong” and other humor for a Saturday afternoon

Long been a fan of Dave Chappelle. One of my favorite comedians of all time. My buddy and I enjoy joking around with tidbits from his shows, particularly from the following two skits.

When “Keeping it Real” Goes Wrong (Brenda):

‘Cuz I keeps it real like that.

 

From eating popcorn in the comfort of her own home, to eating fruit cocktail off the prison floor…

Hehehe. Never tire of that one.

“Wayne Brady show”:

Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?

rofl  Love that part!

“True Hollywood Stories – Rick James Part 1”:

“True Hollywood Stories – Rick James Part 2”:

Fuck yo’ couch, nigga, fuck yo’ couch!

 

They should’ve never gave you niggas money!

LOL!  Charlie Murphy’s stories crack me up every time, no matter how many times I re-listen to them.

“Tron Carter’s Law & Order”:

I plead the fifth!

R. Kelly (Parody) – “Piss on You”:

“Kneehigh Park”:

It’s a VD Day…

“The Pregnant Oprah Episode” clips:

I respect Dave Chappelle for standing up for himself and his own interests and backing away from Hollywood. Probably a crazy life to be mixed up in all of that for too long.
