Are you drunk?

Sometimes PF'er say things which are too strange and impossible to understand! You know someone asks them something, but the answer to his/her question is really irrelevant to the question! :bugeye: Well it's obvious that sometimes people try to misunderstand others deliberately in order to have much fun or whatever else, but you can't really put some of the replies to this category. And you can't say it's my fault not to understand them in every case, because it usually happens to others too. Do do you agree it happens not often but sometimes?

Let's forget about what I said before, because I'm going to give another evidence:
Sometimes people say things and talk in a way that only a drunk person could speak like that. Agree?

Now I want to ask whether you're drinking(or are drunk) while visiting PF or not! And do you have any other reasons for why some members' posts don't make sense to anyone? o:)


What do you think of my imagination? Do you think I was drunk when I started this thread because it almost doesn't make sense! :rolleyes:

I'd hate to find out that a lot of academic guidance and strong scientific discussion was shared from a bunch of drunken scholars. :)

Although, if that were the case, I think someone would have found out a while ago. *gives Lisa! a breathalyzer*

I won't mention Winston Churchill and Erwin Schrödinger, which I just did, but yeah sometimes on GD and in the PF Lounge, it is completely unreadable.

Wait a minute. I never find any irrelevant post in serious discussions out of GD. What I'm saying is only about GD and if anyone would ever say things like that about other serious forums, I go to the conclusion that person must be drunk or crazy.

As a matter of fact, once in a while someone who is posting drunk is so drunk they mention how drunk they are. In GD, anyway. It is clear from the quality of there posts in other forums that they are also posting drunk there. This is a waste of everyone's time.

At other times, there have been people here who seemed drunk or on drugs, but who eventually mentioned they had some kind of brain trauma; one was recovering from a stroke, and the other had been in a serious car accident.

Sometimes non-english speaking people post WAY before their English is good enough to express their concepts, and some people seem to have both that problem and some kind of brain trauma, mental illness, or are drunk. It's really had to sort out what the heck is behind some of the more bizarre posts.

So what's you're excuse? :biggrin:

yomamma, at least I'm sure you're not drunk because your posts always make sense to me. But I don't know why my posts usually don't make sense to you and just make you confused! :uhh:

No need to admit that, arildno. It's difficult to speak a language other than your mother language when someone's drunk. :wink:

Contrary to that theory, I have personally experienced moments in both the Philippines and in China when people of differing language somehow magically are able to communicate better in each other's languages when drunk.

Has anyone experienced this before?

The inhibitions drop, tones magiacally arrive at the right place at the right time.

I posted drunk the other night. I don't think that there will be anything very entertaining about it except that I think I was a bit more long winded than I really needed to be. That happens when I'm sober too though. It may have been a bit entertaining watching me type though.

I don't remember if I posted the other night when I came home drunk. :biggrin: :redface: That would have been Thursday night when I was taken out for cake, then drinks, the dinner with drinks, then more cake. I don't try to answer any serious topics if I'm drunk though, just GD goofing around. It does take me about 3 times as long to type out my responses though because I make a lot of typos!

I never said I don't drink. I just don't see much point in getting wasted, so I rarely do.

Also, if I am going to drink heavily, it isn't going to be wine. The best stuff for that is high-quality vodka, hands down. No matter how much of that I drink, I've never gotten sick and never gotten a hangover. Wine is to enhance meals and for breakfast when there is no food around.

Good idea. But well I hope people wouldn't pretend to be drunk and then say whatever they want! :uhh:

I suggested some, but I think they got buried because they came up in another thread in feedback (was it the guru thread?). One was the groaning smiley, and the other was a puppy dog eyes smiley that HRW requested. I also thought we should switch the blue "cool" smiley that's in the post icons with the orange one that looks like a sunburnt Russ instead of cool. :biggrin:
