That's about what I ended up eating (rather large bowl) at that particular party. And it was good weed. My body felt like a sponge, if that makes any sense.

That's a lot of drinking.

I was merely trying to point out how prevalent drinking is for Russians, not necessarily the amounts I drink.

Although I hear crazy stories of relatives' drinking from way back when, in the USSR.

That makes complete sense. I have eaten enough brownies in a night to equal about an 1/8 of pot, and you feel the same way.

I've only smoked. So this "feel like a sponge" thing is very foreign.

This is well known to me, as I have Russian relatives. My cousins speak very fondly of them; they also reminisce: "They could cook like you wouldn't believe, and you've never seen anyone drink so much in your life."

They're not blood relatives, but relatives through marriage. Though through my cousins, I suppose the relation becomes whole. Regardless of that, I'm nearly full-blooded Scotch-Irish. There is a very long history of boozing in my blood.

I don't get it. I really don't. I was set on getting completely trashed, and I ended up getting slightly drunk... Or maybe even just really tipsy. The drinking was spread over the course of maybe four hours, and I had lots and lots of water. I must've wizzed at least eight times that night. I didn't have enough water, though, and my hangover the next day was the worst I've ever had. I felt like I was on the verge of puking, but never actually managed to do so. It was terrible.

I had steak and mac & cheese beforehand. Mom made it. 'Twas excellent.

Edit: Actually, I think it was barbecue. But there was mac & cheese, definitely remember that.

That is awful. Worst hangover ever for being tipsy. Unacceptable.

I'm positive it was the NOS being added to the equation, as well as the insane amount of sake I chugged. Next time I drink (during vacation), it shall not happen.

There is an overwhelming percentage of 18-22 year olds, a majority of which are probably college kids currently doing an undergraduate degree. Now this figure is really surprising considering the left-wing bias of NSG...

Not really. 18-22 is a wide category. There MAY be more 18 y-o's than 16 y-o's, but the poor design of the poll has clobbered that information.

I did the graph when there were 154 votes in. Now at 222. I'll update soon. now.
