Stop and Go Simultaneously
This is a concept, however, that I just don't get. Alcohol is a depressant. It takes the jagged edges off a rough day. It relaxes you, reduces inhibitions, leaves a euphoric feeling...at least initially.
Why then would you want to do that and at the same time fire up your nerves, jangle your senses and palpitate your heart? On the one hand you are trying to relax and on the other you are trying to keep from relaxing at all.
While you are reducing your mental acuity, you are firing up your energy level so as to be able to demonstrate your stupidity even faster and more aggressively. Why would that be a good idea?
Even if you weren't sending these incredibly conflicting messages to your body and all who surround you, isn't there also the question of enjoyment? If you are going to drink, isn't a major part of it about the taste? I'm not saying you have to swirl, sniff, slosh, gargle and spit then write a pompous essay about the nuances of terroir displayed in that pint of Annie Greensprings. But isn't the drinking supposed to have some good tastes involved?
What then to make of the sampling of that author?
By far the tastiest, it looks, smells and tastes just like someone spilled malt liquor in Welch's Grape Soda
That was the best tasting? Seriously? Welch's Grape Soda is something that most of us haven't tasted since we were four and moved up to the more mature flavor of Nehi Orange Pop. Malt liquor is a fermented concoction that was created to give good beer a bad name. Pouring bad beer into kindergarten bubbly makes the best in show of the energy boozes!
I just don't get the whole thing.
