    Maybe beer really does make you smarter?

    That has been me. In fact, at the last Texas APA Conference I was out until about 2am bar-hopping and then did a conference presentation first thing the next morning. In fact, I believe at least two Cyburbians saw that presentation (and one of them was with me for the barhopping).

All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    It certainly seems to have that effect. Not only does it make you smarter when you drink it, but if you drink a little more it'll also improve your looks, make you more charming, and even improve your dancing skills!
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    I shudder to think what you were like before you discovered beer.

    But driving, say, I-94 from Bismark ND to Dickinson ND might not be such a bad way to spend a morning recovering....just set the cruise control to a nice and steady 50 mph ?
    50 MPH?!!?!?!?!?!???!!?!

    Yeah, I had to run a jackhammer hung-over once. That's loud, motion, and attention all in one. Yeah, I Everyone thought that was just funny as hell, except me.

    It only improves your looks and makes you more charming if she is also drinking more beer.

    I worked at McDonald's in my 20s. The worst was pulling an opening shift and having to work the breakfast grill

    Making fried chicken at KFC isn't much easier.

    My hangover cure when working at KFC - mashed potatoes (no gravy), Mountain Dew, and a co-worker's Midol. Yes, it sounds weird, but it worked wonders.

    After a night of celebrating my 21st birthday, I had to get up at 5:30am the next morning (on 2 hours of sleep) and do the Army PT test, AKA a timed 2 minutes of as many pushups as possible, immediately followed by 2 minutes of as many situps, followed by a timed 2 mile run. Sleep deprivation + hangover + rigorous exercise =/= a jolly good time.

    Once you get in your seat, one can just fall asleep. But getting to the airport and through TSA can be heck on earth even if not hung over.
