My alcohol tolerance has really tanked, I was past tipsy on 3.8 units (710cl) of Corona on Saturday, and tonight on 4 bottles (330ml) of Tiger beer.
Though tbh, that's 2.5 shots of pure alcohol, or 100ml of spirits equivalent.

Eh, Lincolnshire (North, at any rate) is close enough to Yorkshire I guess.

We have a demarcation line that drains a fifth of England.

I've been to scunthorpe, it's okay, but what really what sets Yorkshire apart in my opinion is the sense of togetherness that's felt within it's borders I've never found that in the midlands to my dismay where I went to uni and now where I live. In London there is some of that, but one part of London hates the other, it's like class conflict was given an earthly location to battle it out and that place was London. Also I'm jealous my high tolerance some times annoys me. Costs me a fortune in clubs.

How have predrinks slipped you buy?

Reminder that that photo represents a tiny fraction of the entire AONB coverage. Notice how most of it is up north or in the south west.

Oh don't get me wrong I'm usually fully loaded on pre-drinks but when your with the uninitiated they sometimes insist on going straight out and thats when my bank account cries. Usually these days now that I'm living with roomates and out of my parents it's predrinks and nothing else as I don't know stoke on trent at all. I tend to get all the eights (mates) in ring of fire and get absolutely smashed though.

Predrinks is a ritual and is more fun than the night out. It's easy to go overboard though - me and my friends threw away about half a bottle of jager thinking it was the right amount for the few energy drinks we had. Waste.

Alcohol tolerance is mostly diet and activity, I've found, so maybe it's because those Tigers didn't go with a curry.

So was that. Last year I seemed to be shacked up with sane people.

Aside from that time the two Spanish students decided to start wrestling in the corridor at 4AM.

Every night? Every night? First year we tried for two good nights a week, and occasionally flew of the hinges and went out on a Saturday but that was first year... and I was insane. funnily enough probably the high point of my mental health whilst I was at uni.

I gained three stone from three nights out and three-five takeouts a week in first year.

In my college, Monday, Wednesday and Thursday are the going out nights. Tuesday is a rest day and most students go home at the weekend, probably go out in their home town on Friday and Saturday also.

I don't track my weight as well as I should but it does shoot up when I'm away from home.

Despite plenty of gym time. I just have no dietary self-control.

You haven't seen no dietary control.

how are you alive
ask moderation about reading serious moderation candidates TGs without telling them about it until afterwards and/or apparently refusing to confirm/deny the exact timeline of TG reading ~~~ i hope you never sent any of the recent mods or the ones that got really close anything personal!

signature edit: confirmation has been received. they will explicitly do it before and without asking. they can look at TGs basically whenever they want so please keep this in mind when nominating people for moderator or TGing good posters/anyone!
