I usually have at most 2 pours in a given night, or a pour and a couple cocktails on a gig. I must be a lightweight. :D

Yeah, I always liked Hemispheres too. I love Moving Pictures and Signals also. ..

Here's five reasons when you know enough is enough:

1. You enjoy the feeling of cold porcelain on the side of your face

2. You wake up in the morning wearing a child's Halloween costume

3. Pictures of you and your privates show up on YouTube

4. You notice the next day you have a tattoo of Herve Villechaize on your shoulder

5. You're singing show tunes while being tasered by the cops

.....anybody else?

I hope you realize that you're going to have to explain the "Herve Villechaize" reference to the younger members here. (And to those of the older ones who have tried desparately to forget.)

6. You go to the bar to order another drink and the bartender looks at you, shakes his head and says, "Oh Yeah. Now I remember you from the last time you were here." or "Oh no. Not you again." :smiley_acbt:

7. You're getting ready for work the next morning, you look in your wallet, and you either have a whole lot more money than you should have, or none at all. :skep:

8. You wake up the next morning in bed, with your underwear on backwards, and there's $50.00 on the night stand. :shocked:

I feel bad. I never got $50.00 out of the deal.:cool: Never woke up with my underwear on backwards either, but I've woke up many times with my T shirt on backwards and inside out and had to look all over the house to find my pants.:grin:

I had a buddy who does a radio show, and every now and again it's all call-in, and they do "community shots." When that's called, he and everyone listening does a shot... people call and tell crazy stories, jokes, whatever.

Well it was about 2am and he was very... intoxicated... when I told him goodnight and I would call him in the morning about going camping the next day. I called at 11am... no answer. Finally at 3PM I got in touch with him.

Woke up to find...
He had ordered some bizarre industrial water pump piece off ebay.
He had all his clothes he owned crammed into the washing machine, dryer, and sink (unwashed, dry, just in there)

... and was wearing brand new, skin tight, price tag still on, little boys swimming trunks.

THAT is when the line of "enough" is crossed, traveled around the world, and crossed a few more times.

Any more, I stick with between 1 and 3 drinks on any given evening. Holidays and special occasions excluded. However, not that long ago, it was different, when I was single and in party mode. Then I would have to add;

-You wake up and notice that your phone has a lot of calls that you don’t remember making, and upon further investigation you realize that you started at the first number in your cell phone and called every number init till you passed out or the battery died, your boss included….luckily he has done this to you in the past and totally understands.

-you wake up and your front door is kicked in, and you can’t find your truck, or keys.

-you wake up your front door is kicked in, your wearing your boots, but your pants are laying on the floor with the legs cut from the ankle to the knee, presumably to get the pants off over the boots, and your house keys are in the pocket of the pants.

-you wake up in the yard, yours or someone else’s, with a dog, or other animal, standing on your chest staring at you, as if to check for life.

These are just a few right off the top of my head.

When you confuse Jack for good whiskey, AKA BOURBON.

Christian, the only thing 'wrong' with Jack Daniel's is the price. I'll admit, I don't buy it, because I can buy a lot of things a lot cheaper that are just as aged, and just as good.
But, that said, there is NOTHING WRONG WITH JACK DANIEL'S (other than what they charge for it, I mean).

Heh. This is exactly how I've converted a few people over to KSBW as the preferred whiskey of choice.

EW Black is 9.00...1/3rd the price of a bottle of Jack.

Jack is not even 86 proof anymore either...it's 80 now.

And EWB is smoother, and tastier to boot.

That being said, there are still people that are strictly brand loyalists...must be the image or something. They look at EWB and say it's a "cheap imitation."

Perhaps the label is an imitation (didn't they do that to capitalize on a JD shortage a few years ago?), and yes it certainly is CHEAP (that's a PLUS in my book), but as for taste, quality and proof of the whiskey itself?

Bah, I'd take EWB over JD anyday, even if both were free.

Here in Europe the price level are very different with JD being relatively cheap. Old no 7 is about 2/3 of a Dickel 8 or 12. Still I never bay it because I think the 2 steps drowning down to 80 proof more or less destroyed this brand. The Silver select is about 40 euro and that is a very good price for a brand of that calibre I think. It is one of my favourites all over.

Sweet...did you just agree to drinking mass quanties of bourbon and allowing us to taser you? Agreeing to this is the only way that I will allow you to drink unlimited Pappy 15 and VW Lot B...otherwise your stuck with ORVW and FRSmB! Can't wait for August 15th...:lol:

All jolies asside I find I can manage 2-3 drinks a night 2-4 times a week. More than three drinks and I will be feeling it the next day. I usually am just too damned busy to manage to have the time to have a few drinks more than 2-4 times a week. I always say drink as much as you care to as long as you are able to take care of your business (family, work, life, etc). When the drink gets in the way of any part of your business I say it is time to cut back on the drink.

That is my philosophy exactly. I drink every night at least 2 to 4 drinks, with 2 kids including a baby in the house and get up every morning for a full time job. Occassionally I will push it one to many on a weeknight and feel it the next morning, so I will have one less the next night to make sure I get rested properly. I have never missed work from drinking too much, nor have I failed to take the night shift with the babies.
