Tabloids invoke freedom of speech, but they're not interested in that, they're just interested in who's shagging whom, who's got drunk.

The inauguration went off very well except that the Vice President Elect was too drunk to perform his duties and disgraced himself and the Senate by making a drunken foolish speech.

If one must drink, then let one drink thrice a month, for more is bad. If one gets drunk twice a month, it is better; if one gets drunk once a month, that is better still; and if one doesn't drink at all, that is the best of all.genghis khan
I have actually programmed a fair bit in Perl, like I have C++ code published with my name on it. Other things I have tried and have no intention to do again if I can at all avoid it include smoking, getting drunk enough to puke and waste the whole next day with hang-over, breaking a leg in a violent car crash, getting mugged in New York City, or travel with Aeroflot.erik naggum

Even then he had those piercing cat's eyes of his and when he had said something, finished up by saying: "If I'm wrong, put me right."

If a man can only write well when drunk, I'll tell him: get drunk. And if he tells me that his liver suffers with it, I'll answer: what's your liver? It's a dead thing that lives as long as you live, and the poems you'll write will live without a as long as.
Petition me no petitions, Sir, to-day; Let other hours be set apart for business, To-day it is our pleasure to be drunk; And this our queen shall be as drunk as we.Henry Fielding
See sin in state, majestically drunk; Proud as a peeress, prouder as a punk.Alexander Pope
