The greatest part about the US is that we have more choices than anywhere else on the planet. Those choices can be for good or bad. Everyone is responsible for their [b]own[/b] behavior including the choices they make. Those choices include the choice to drink, and if not done moderately, to get drunk. Once drunk, you are still responsible for your behavior. stepping off soapbox....

[b]"Effects of alcohol on behavior"[/b] This topic actually plays well with the current thread about Ted Kennedy dying. With Ted in mind, alcohol certainly makes people think and act strangely.

Stage 1 - SMART This is when you suddenly become an expert on every subject in the known universe. You know you know everything and you want to pass on your knowledge to anyone who will listen. At this stage you are always RIGHT. And of course, the person you are talking to is very WRONG. This makes for an interesting argument when both parties are SMART. Stage 2 - GOOD LOOKING This is when you realize that you are the BEST LOOKING person in the entire bar and that people fancy you. You can go up to a perfect stranger knowing they fancy you and really want to talk to you. Keep in mind that you are still SMART, so you can talk to this person about any subject under the sun. Stage 3 - RICH This is when you suddenly become the RICHEST person in the world. You can buy drinks for the entire bar because you have an armored truck full of money parked behind the bar. You can also make bets at this stage, because of course you're still SMART, so naturally, you will win all your bets. It doesn't matter how much you bet because you are RICH. You will also buy drinks for everyone that you fancy, because you are also the BEST LOOKING person in the world. Stage 4 - BULLET PROOF You are now ready to pick fights with anyone and everyone, especially those with whom you have been betting or arguing. This is because nothing can hurt you. At this point you can also go up to the partners of the people whom you fancy and challenge them to a battle of wits or money. You have no fear of losing this battle, because you're SMART, you're RICH and Hell, you're better looking than them anyway! Stage 5 - INVISIBLE This is the final stage of Drunkenness. At this point you can do anything, because NO ONE CAN SEE YOU. You dance on a table to impress the people whom you fancy, because the rest of the people in the room cannot see you. You are also invisible to the person who wants to fight you. You can walk through the street singing at the top of your lungs because no one can see or hear you - and because you're still SMART you know ALL the words."

It makes you drink when you are not thirsty.

I don't remember who wrote this but it has stuck in my mind for a long time: A wine is made from three grapes. The first grape is pleasure. The second grape is drunkeness. The third grape is regret. Let us drink from the first grape only. I may have mangled that pretty bad, but you get the idea.
