Cuz you either get a hangover or you wake up drunk. I'd rather drive to work/school with a hangover

Or you didn't drink enough before.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

I only get hangovers if I forget to drink water and take some multivitamins and vitamin B before I pass out. Eating lots of food helps too

How does having a hangover mean you're not drunk anymore?

 

Edit: Oh, I looked it up, apparently that's actually how it works. Interesting, I didn't actually know that. :P

So drink a gallon of water before you drink alcohol.

 

Is my understanding.

Wouldn't change anything, alcohol is a diuretic which means that water passed through the kidneys won't be re-uptaken/salvaged, you would also lose many salts (Sodium and Potassium) that would usually be salvage under non-alcoholic influence - which also contribute to the general unpleasantness of being hungover.

 

You will have more luck simply sipping water occasionally after you have done your drinking and between you go to sleep.

 

Furthermore, drinking a gallon of water in a short period of time would contribute heavily to water intoxication (loss of salts)

Flossing all the junk out after devouring corn on the cob. Like it's making me do penance for eating vegetables! :(

A bit late, but the 145 writers/artists/morons who decided to boycott PEN for giving Charlie Hebdo a freedom of speech award because they are "for freedom of speech" but apparently not freedom to draw things have annoyed the Hell (or, as the Muslims say, Jahannam) out of me.  

 

Charlie Hebdo staff were shot for drawing about 3 cartoons in 3 years depicting an illiterate, likely schizophrenic 7th century Arabian warlord who some people think had a hotline to God. If they did not stand up for freedom of speech, I don't know what the [bleep] counts as standing up for it. Certainly the 145 useful idiots - using their right to free speech to advocate not having freedom of speech - are a lot, lot worse.

Agnostic.

 

But that has nothing to do with my belief that freedom of speech should include the right to mock religious figures. Most sane people think that.

That's not what freedom of speech means.

It's very possible to be in favor of free speech while strongly disagreeing with what certain groups actually say, and not wanting to endorse or support them for it. To suggest that using their right to free speech to nonviolently disagree means they "advocate not having freedom of speech" is downright deplorable.

 

But by all means, keep trying to discredit people that disagree with you as enemies of free speech.

Food for thought: http://calebjonesblog.com/nobody-wants-free-speech/

 

 

tl;dr: nobody actually wants freedom of speech

 

Right-wing conservatives don’t want free speech. They want the government to wield massive power over public mediums to make sure no one says the F-word, talks about sex too explicitly, or badmouths certain religions or their own country.

Left-wing liberals/progressives don’t want free speech. They want the government to wield massive power over public mediums to make sure no one says the N-word or anything deemed insensitive to certain races or sexual preferences, what the progressives call “hate speech,” a term that can essentially mean “anything that makes me really mad when I hear it.”

 

Nobody wants free speech.

I want freedom of speech. Everything short of calls for genocide or credible violent threats should be legal.

cell_phone/10 but the point to that was that I think we mostly care about genocide threats against ethnic groups that aren't exactly powerful.

Not exclusively, but the right to do so is protected by the notion of free speech. 

 

It's very possible to be in favor of free speech while strongly disagreeing with what certain groups actually say, and not wanting to endorse or support them for it.

I acknowledge that the 145 are entitled to do what they have done. But if you read the published open letters and justifications they provide, most of them say fundamentally misunderstand freedom of speech. So when people say, "I'm for free speech" and give a bogus definition, I think it's fair to say that by being so misleading they are, in a sense, "enemies" of free speech. Just as a homeopathic doctor is an enemy of medical science: they may give lip service to medicine, but they don't understand a damn thing about it.

Having strong doubts about what I'm going to about in my near future. Not really sure studying philosophy is the thing for me right now, and with finals around the corner it's starting to become time to decide what to do.
