What if I feel offended by such a topic?
What if I think this might have a bad influence on visitors (young) to this site?
What if I feel that this world is going down the pipes by promoting such an attitude?

get my drift ee?

Absolutely.  I would say that you have a point of view that we need to listen to - as we do to everyone else too.

But I'm not sure if I like the way that you express it   The only reason I can see for posting that particular message and for mentioning me in the third party as you did is to 'grandstand'.  If this bothered most of our members they would have been satisfied with a private comment to the forum administration - either me or a moderator of thier choice and I don't think they would 'go public', as you have unless their point of view was ignored.

But this approach was your choice and as such I hope you are getting out of it what you seek.

I have one family member who ALWAYS comes up with some malady to show you, going "Does this look infected to you?"

AT THE DINNER TABLE.

Ick. Either cover it up, or go to the doctor with that stuff if you don't want me poking it and diagnosing it as leprosy, let alone "Holy crap! You guys! Come check this out! It's a crater!"

Technically, the handle "Vagabond" actually encourages sloth, which is one of the seven deadly sins, if you subscribe to a Judeo-Christian theology. Even if you don't, sloth is an unfavorable trait and a detrimental work ethic not conducive to a positive dance environment. That handle... might be offensive.

I was bored. *shrug*
Ginger has long been known to help relieve nausea, and research at the University of Sydney has found it may also reduce pain and inflammation, but now we might have to reconsider all these beneficial characteristics .

Another meaning of the word ginger is as a pejorative term and an ethnic slur for a person with pale skin, red hair, and freckles

pejorative (also term of abuse or term of disparagement), as a noun, means a word or phrase that implies disapproval or contempt and is meant to be insulting, impolite, or unkind: "A belittling or disparaging word or expression." When used as an adjective, pejorative is synonymous with derogatory, derisive, dyslogistic, and contemptuous. Standards of politeness limit the use of pejoratives.

Just google your pseudonym and be amazed by some of the definitions

(I was bored too .....)
And I'm not religious at all, so these seven sins are irrelevant to me.

I would like to stress that I dont' feel comfortable about this thread if it goes down the path of not promoting responsible drinking. There is a world wide issue with serious health and social issues relating to irresponsible use of high sugar alcoholic drinks.

If we can keep it  on a sensible approach that would be great. OK I get off my soap box now  Shocked

I think you have a very valid point there QPO, I'm not too comfortable with this topic for the same such reasons

It doesn't have to be "stupid and fun," even--just "silly and fun!"  Case in point:

After finding out about X and his new GF ( Angry), the weekend before last my girlfriends and I decided that we really needed to go out, mostly so I could blow off some steam and drink X away.  We get to the bar, I do a tequila shot, and the next thing we know this adorable guy slides into the booth next to us and says, "My band's not playing tonight, and I'm lonely.  Can I hang out with y'all?"  Long story short, he did hang out all night, and kept buying us drinks!  (Well, me--one friend doesn't drink and the other was driving)  He got 2 SoCo and lime shots into me, plus a rum & Coke cocktail, so when you add that to the tequila shot I had when we first got there, he definitely got me drunk!  That said, I was not so drunk to get sick, pass out, or lose my memory (I remember the whole night), so it was more fun than anything else.  I didn't even have a hangover the next morning!

But...part 2 of the story.  Cutie-pie musician tells us the next time his band was playing.  That was last night.  Took one of the girls with me, and it turns out his band freakin' ROCKS!  Seriously...great show.  Then, when we're talking to him after it's over, my friend tells him that apparently they have some mutual friends back in TX, where they're both from.  What's even crazier is that these mutual friends of theirs are guys my friend would trust with her life, and apparently they're also some of his best friends!  After that we pretty much decided it was fate that he came up to us that night out of nowhere.

Crazy world.

Pretty sure he's available.  No clue if he's interested.  With my luck, probably not.

Yeah well, with my track record, I'm not going to get excited.  It'll be 2 weeks before I see him again anyway--both me and my friend will be out of town next week, plus he said he wouldn't be there next Thursday either.
