It never pays to drink and drive.  Even when your ride is made of fleece.

Ye Olde Remedy

How to Sober Up, 1628

“That one shall not be drunke. Drink the iuyce of Yerrow fasting, and ye shall not be drunke, for no drinke; and if you were drunke it will make you sober: or else take the marrow of porke fasting, and ye shall not be drunke; and if you be drunke annoint your privie members in vineger, and ye shall waxe sober.”

The Booke of Pretty Conceits (1628)

I could not find what the Juice of Yerrow fasting is, nor the Marrow of pork fasting (Bone Marrow maybe, they did make soup out of it).  But the pouring of vinegar on private parts is easy to decipher.

I assume this works better when your posion is Old English 800.

Not What You Think

by Screedler on September 13, 2014

A little guy finds some blue goo and goes out for a beer; which leads to the end of his world.  It’s a good thing.

A few of these I had never heard of so […]

Russian Road Rage

September 2, 2014

Those crazy Russian dashboard cams don’t get weirder than this. I can only imagine vodka was involved. But who really knows.

Robin Williams et al

September 1, 2014

If you have spent time in the rooms long enough you surely know someone this applies to as well. In my case, I guess I am lucky. While I have lost many friendships to the dark side, only two of them (so far) have paid the ultimate price. One was friend I had in AA […]

A video of New Yorkers struggling to function after indulging in an all you can drink brunch special made the rounds yesterday on all the national news channels. A fed-up neighbor who lives next to Pranna, the Flatiron District lounge where it all went down, spent three weeks secretly taping the drunken antics of well […]

Academic by Day, Drug Thief by Night

August 24, 2014

Neuroscientists with first hand experience of addiction are probably not that common; so I was curious what Marc Lewis’s take would be. What grabbed my attention about this interview, was a statement he makes about addiction that TDA an I have talked about many a time. How much work and willpower it takes to stay […]

Duffless – Historic Simpsons Episode

August 21, 2014

Historic for me anyway. Well, I probably will not watch every episode of The Simpsons in the 12 Day Marathon of every Simpsons episode ever starting on FXX today. That’s right 25 years worth of Simpsons, every episode in chronological order. Now that’s a marathon. But, there is one I am going to make a […]

Growing Pains

August 18, 2014

I could be all serious today and do a post dissecting this New Republic story that blames the Ferguson situation on current drug enforcement policies – There Is Only One Real Way to Prevent Future Fergusons: End the War on Drugs or on the finding that Big Mike had marijuana in his system. But I […]

Robin Williams Talks About It

August 13, 2014

Like everyone in the world I was shocked to hear about Robin Williams. To be honest though, I always felt that really dark side he channeled in some movies was closer to home than his lighter ones. You just never know what real darkness lies in the hearts of men. But in this interview on […]

A Cure for Pain

August 10, 2014

Heard this song on the radio today and just had to research.  A song by a band named Morphine called “A Cure For Pain” about what else – drug addiction. In researching it I found out that the leader and singer of the band Mark Sandman, had a heart attack on stage and died right […]

To Digg, or Not To Digg

August 7, 2014

Digg had several alcohol and addiction related items today in their top 10 most dugg stories. The second most dugg story today was about how PBR is no longer cool (it never was with me) as a nation of hipsters had finally reached peak PBR. Number four an article on how Trader Joes could sell 2$ bottles of wine […]
