As a non-drinker, I always find it somewhat amusing, often shaking my head, at how people's behavior changes and intelligence lowers, the more inebriated they get.
I remember one time a long time ago when some friends and I would get together and regularly get blotto while discussing life, the universe and everything. One night, we thought that we should record all these brilliant discussions of which we only could muster a vague memory the next day.
Listening back to those tapes was so embarrassing, the discussions so heartfelt yet so inane and silly, that it was overwhelmingly decided to not just erase them, but throw them in the fire to destroy them as quickly and thoroughly as possible. It was good for a laugh, but I vowed not only to never be recorded in a state of inebriation ever again, but also to never think for a second that booze and recreational drugs make anyone smarter in any way.
That being said, I do sometimes miss my Guinness Dark Ale...
