If you get *DRUNK* something's amiss.
I also disagree that young people think it's cool to get drunk. I'm 24 and there is nothing cool about getting drunk. The thing is having too many drinks and the crazy antics you get up to while intoxicated leave numerous memorable or immemorable moments on which to reflect fondly (or not so fondly) in later life.
Any idiot with a mouth can get drunk. It's no big accomplishment.
I'm having flashbacks of "DARE". Dope is for dopes.
Any idiot with a mouth can act like an sophisticate as well. If getting shit faced makes you happy, so be it. Shine on, shine on. Some people can't enjoy sipping something that, to them, tastes like elaphant piss; however, if they swallow it quickly and in large quantities, they enjoy it immensly. It doesn't matter what the morality police say about drinking, to them it is fun, even if they regret it in life. They will argue the exact opposite as others, and be just as convincing. Who is right? Well, to be honest, all sides of the debate are made up of morons. Here endeth the lesson. (I think that is a fitting quote)
