Drunkards are the most calculating scientific people there are, it was dunkards who discovered beer, and found if you didn't move the crock, the yeast would settle and you'd get a clearer brew, you still had to drink it thought a straw, but the side effect was the first permament towns, the first mathematics was a bar tab on a piece of wet clay, the first painkiller was booze and the first surgeon a drunkard willing to "cut it out", the first successful chemists were'nt looking to turn lead to gold, they were trying to turn wine into Brandy.
In the 1800s a British sailor's daily ration was a 24 of beer and a half mickey of straight 180 proof Jamaican rum, It was men like them that cleared the seas of pirates, ended slavery worldwide, they come up with evolution,, fossils, and economics, Adam smith was so hammered he put bread and butter into a teapot, drank the concoction, and declared it to be the worst cup of tea he ever had. Typical drunkard tomfoolery.
Compared to them we're f'ing pansys
So Drink yer drink, and think heroic thoughts, drink heroically, live heroically, the world depends on you, so show that bottle bottom the ceiling, sailor.
