What is your poison of choice?

In terms of all things "bad" for us, what is your go-to poison? 

This can be alcoholic drinks, drugs, or bad food. 

For me, I have always been a Bacardi kind of guy. I don't drink often but when I do, I enjoy it a lot.

Let's not talk about drugs here.

I'm a beer guy.  I used to drink liquor a little bit in my 20's, mainly rye.  After a little while I stopped enjoying the rye buzz....made me irritable and want to fight.  So, I switched to beer and have been drinking it ever since.  Budweiser is the usual, but I also enjoy Carona in the summer and Moosehead.  However....I seldom will play video games when I'm drinking.  I do, but once I get to a certain point of drunkness, the game goes off.  I don't mind games like Tetris or Pacman, but anything that takes focusing like RDR I can't play after 5 or 6 beers, as I tend to get sloppy in my play.  Also, the homemade chicken wings I make every Friday are surely a poison for me lol

I'm not much of a drinker. Every now and then I will go on a mad one, then i'll feel like crap and won't do it again for months. Apart from that I maybe have one drink a week, on a Friday to celebrate the start of the weekend. 

Junk food is more my poison. I'm a sucker for chinese food.

Gone are the days of poking smot (legal here in NV @Cokeyskunk). But if they were still here, you might find me frolicking somewhere in game. Picking sage and wildflowers, after that Survivalist Rank. 

Though, Scarlett Meadows does sound lovely...

 

 

Maybe it's time to get into that Altoids tin, still in the garage.

I am an unabashed shill for all things Guinness.  

I also may or may not have even filled a bathtub with a 2 kegs of it at one point and soaked in it while watching college football for an entire day (and it may or may not have been the best day of my life).

Can I ask what country you're from?

In theory, that sounds amazing.

In practice, that sounds like:

  • You're either in a tub of warm, comfortable beer (but drinking warm beer), or you're drinking ice cold beer (and so freezing your butt off)
  • Letting the beer you drink touch every orifice of your body
  • You either have to drink it all within one day, or else pull the drain and start crying

THE United States of America.  Cleveland, Ohio.

You have no idea.

It was during college football's "bowl season," (early January for our European friends) so it was right around freezing outside.  I had the kegs sitting in my laundry room at room temp for a few days, and the aroma once I sat in the tub was what I imagine Heaven will smell like.

I also had bottled Guinness in a bucket of ice next to the tub, with a television sitting on a table next to the sink.

Oh, this was completely premeditated.  I won a bet when I was in college, and, having paid my tuition and costs for the quarter, decided to knock an item off my bucket list.

It was worth it.

I must know how much you won on the bet, and how much this little amazing endeavor cost you.

$500.  I had been running my mouth about how much Guinness I could drink in a day without getting sick, and settled on forty bottles.  Nobody believed that I could do it, so we set up some ground rules, and on a Saturday that everyone was off,  I picked up six twelve packs (I had to share, right?) and went for it.  If I lost the bet, I had to pick up the bar tab for about ten people on a night of their choosing.  But if I won, each person owed me $50.  Money went into an envelope the day before we started.

I finished by 10:30 that night.  Someone estimated that I had put just over 10k calories into my body that day, 5000 from the beer, and another 5000 in food (if I remember correctly, I ate two entire pizzas, more chicken wings than I can remember--we lived behind a plaza that had a lot of food options).

Total cost, back then, was I believe around $250-$300 for the kegs.  After I got the deposit back on the kegs, I had another party for my friends with what was left.  We ordered food and I paid for the beer (minus what I had paid for the beers for the challenge).

True story.  In fact, Mrs. Creed met me shortly after this and was always dubious as to whether or not it was true, until our wedding night, when I knocked out about 15-18 pints during our reception (about five hours).  Keep in mind, I was dancing and burning a lot of it off, but I was fine and even drove us home from the reception.  That was ten years ago this year, and I bet I could at least do 30 in a day with no issues, even now.

Holy cats.

And I have to assume you're not 8 feet tall and weigh 680 lbs?

You must have the liver of a demigod.

It's all about the pacing.  Two or three an hour is not a big deal if you stay active and sweat a lot of it off.  Of course, being 6'4" and 225lbs certainly helps.

And if you don't mind paying the price the next day by feeling like a sack of crap.

Edit: my liver is probably in not so good shape, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

You lucky sod. For years, I have collected Darth Vader memorabilia. My desk at work is covered in Vader-swag. I even have my own suit I've mostly constructed myself (except the helmet/mask)

. . . but I'm 5'11.

Vader is supposed to be 6'7"

. . . any idea how UN-intimidating it is to be around a squatty Vader??

I wish I were 6'4". And in fact, my doctor tells me I probably would have been (as many other dudes in my family have been), but because I started smoking when I was 13, I now have the upper body of a 6'4" man, and the legs of a 5'6" teenager.

You'd make a great Vader . . .

I'm more a mitth'raw'nuruodo guy, myself.  But my oldest is all about Kylo Ren, and my youngest has a room draped in Vader swag.  I didn't even have to push it on them, they found it on their own.

I think Mrs. Creed and Mrs. Goons should get together one night to argue over whose guy can drink more.  😁

My trials have never involved soaking in a tub of Guinness. I think he has me beat. It would be a good close match though. I would be willing to bet him and I could drink a keg of Guinness in an afternoon though. 

I wonder if our ladies kept some food coming, how many bottles we could knock down in a day. 

We need to meet up sometime Bro. Only a couple hours away.

I was a smoker but gave that up, in both regards to where that applies but not in the plumber sense, would never touch that. Riddles!

I don't really drink anymore either so I guess the worst thing I do to my body is drinking soda, eating fast food, and being lazy. I need to work out or something.

I refuse to meet in Youngstown.  It's more depressing than Detroit (I get around and I've seen some stuff).

Yeah, I have no need for crack, so I will pass on that. Akron has a nice restaurant called Dante's in the area they are revitalizing. There was a cool venue where I saw Agent Orange and Reverend Horton Heat once. Other than those places, hard pass on Akron too.

Sometime when I get caught up in life I will head up to Ctown. We can paint the wagons red.

@Cokeyskunk all we have in Pittsburgh is Stillers fans and Donnie(pronounced Dahnie) Iris. I have C-envy.

There's nothing "little" about 60% of the "chicks" here.  That number is closer to 80% for the bros.

The birthplace of Steph Curry AND Lebron James?  You absolute monster!

To be fair, I once dated a girl who went to school at Dayton.  She made the news....

Edit: the rabbit hole with that story is deep.  Take a flashlight.

I am not ashamed to say I miss that show. Cleveland may be a joke to many people but I lived there for a few years when I was a kid and loved it. Beats living in Springfield.

Not bad. Why didn't she make the "Mrs. Creed" cut?

Because of the article.  Which happened while we were dating.

Also, THE Mrs. Creed makes her look like a "2".  Coincidentally, I bumped into the ex about six months ago.  The last fifteen years have been... more charitable to my rugged good looks than to her now rugged looks.

Edit: for reference, Mrs. Creed was a state champion in discus in high school, and won the ACC Championship three straight years ('95-'97).  I married so far above my pay grade, it's ridiculous.

Best part of Springfield is staying on 70 to go past it. Haha I still have a couple friends out there. Could be worse. You could live in Enon!

And yes, sad to say i agree that I miss that sitcom in some twisted way. I thought about replying that as well when @Cokeyskunk brought it up.

@BropolloCreed79 you have just hit legendary status. Congrats on the life upgrade with Mrs Creed.
