I'll second that stupid stuff sober part.

The liquid stupidity reminds me of the time I had to redefine beer drinkers. A couple of my neighbors were serious problem drinkers. 'People dumb enough to spend big money on a product that will make them really stupid.'

Of course that doesn't go for all of them. Some of them make their own beer, so the big money part doesn't apply to them. Some of them don't live on my wimpy budget, so the big money part is relative.

Lots of people don't drink to the point where it gets to be a problem. Just a drink or 2 a day helps with life expectancy, and that's not a problem.

Since I no longer buy gasoline, there is more money for beer, but I have not seen too many examples of beer being the Breakfast of Champions...

I guess moderation, in beer AND gasoline...

Eh, I don't have a car and I don't drink, so I'll just keep the money thank you very much. Or spend it on bike stuff I don't need.

Same here; no car and I don't drink. I could use the money, though.

I can definitely tell a difference in taste between summer and winter mixes.

El Ricko,
Some of us that hit the sauce off duty do not disrupt our job,family,lifestyle.
There are just are more extreme guidelines we have to follow in regard this habit nowadays.It's not fair,it's just the way of the current politics on behavior in America.

Spending $7 on a Miller Light is stupid.

Gasoline is much cheaper than beer. But it doesn't taste as good as most brands.

Grass is cheaper and more effective that either.

I use much less gas these days, and I'm picky about my beers.

Does that answer your question?
