Then you don't party hard enough.


I expanded the OP a bit to include my toga phase, but Arthur was doing a lot of drugs rather than the respectable alcohol I was consuming and I think he mixed the wrong stuff with some alcohol and sort of went into another world. There was also a conversation where I think I agreed with someone that the Nazi Aktion T-4 program was a good idea, a good half hour where I was curled up in a ball in the shower after something...the rest is just bits and pieces.

It was fucked and I hope to experience that once again before I die.

They might, but people are afraid to even get restaurant food because of people that might have the virus working there. It'll take some time, at least in the US, before everyone's aware of the emergency paid sick leave that we're supposed to be getting.

Incidentally this also happened during my sophomore year, a few parties over at Kinnear were degenerate in their own way but this was something else. After that it got a lot more sedate but no less drunken, especially when I found a bar that let me smoke indoors.

I did experience the first two-day hangover of my entire life as a result of this, so that was a first.

... Um no. You're right. I just told him to call his doctor.

Apparently... His doctor is an 80 year old fossil who confused him for a CDC scientist, not helped by said fossil apparently consulting.

He has the flu. :rofl:

So much for being worried to death, me AND my poor maybe-sick-with-a-new-scary-virus boyfriend included. I wanted to talk to this doctor but my boyfriend didn't let me, said I'd just shriek and give death and legal threats to said doctor. He knows me too well. Either way, this doctor should fucking retire before someone slaps him with malpractice.

Oh well. Big gaffe on my part, but like I give a shit. I'm too happy now. My prior points still stand though, and my signature remains. Vigilance is important. :lol:

I always did wonder about that.

Can you use high proof alcohol to disinfect stuff.

If so, I got a shit-ton of vodka.

Vodka is apparently a good substitute for sanitizer. And it doesn’t smell.

Well, there was the time in which I managed to leave my laptop in the students union (I don't take my laptop to the students union, I must have gone back home and got it for some reason and then come back), and found my phone sat on top of the toilet. That was worrying given before I found my phone I had no way to order (politely ask) my favourite slave (best friend in all the world) to go back and pick my laptop up for me.

And you can drink it if you get thirsty, which I wouldn't recommend with hand sanitiser.

And I have 7 litres of vodka just in my bedroom, as well as 3 of gin and 2 of emergency hand sanitiser (whisky), so I'm safe. Think I have some sambuca but that'd just leave my hands all sticky.

Certainly, if it's above 60-70% alcohol it is a great disinfectant. If you were ambitious you could set up a simple still to concentrate it to the required level for an effective disinfectant.
