Beer 4-4.5%? Bah...maybe for crap macro beers. I usually drink stuff in the 6-9% range, and it actually tastes good, no alcohol burn. I've got some 9.8% stuff now

Drinking beer and wine ain't bad. It's when you get drunk that does the damage.

well i beg to differ. There will always be people that cant refuse that extra drink that makes them into a jaxazz. There are alot of people that are content to have a few drinks and socialize it just comes with age when you dont want to get wasted but want to socialize. I think alcohal is fine as long as you can maturely handle it but that comes with trial and error and btw drinking alone ???? you know you have problems when

I can see your point of view I suppose. There are many people who's drinking is out of control and negatively affects themselves and the people surrounding them.

But on the other hand there are a whole lot of people who can drink responsibly and just have a good time. I don't think that the people in that category should be looked down upon.

Oh this is out of hand lol do you know what a depressant is....obviously computers are your forte(perhaps)

Its statements like this that make me laugh, and scare the shot out of me. Why can't people get(and impart) the facts correctly, and cease to demonize alcohal. My parents were quite liberal and tolerated any under age drinking but guess what it was done under their supervision(hey were irish). I was never brought home drunk never vomitted never drove drunk and never fought. The list could go on. Let someone discover it for themselves and they make mistakes.

10-12% sounds powerful, but for me, its all about how they taste! There is a 14% beer called Samiclaus that is brewed once a year and it supposedly very tasty which I would love to try. Not to mention most imperial stouts which average ~9%, but there are plenty higher, including one that clocks in at 23% (Dogfishead World Wide Stout)!!

Yes, 2 proof = 1%.

But where did they come up with this measuring system?

Beer:- Helping ugly people have sex for 175 years

Now expecting someone to actually research how long beer has been being made (Yes nearly 4000 years) But who's to say how long it's been helping ugly people to have sex?

I sipped 80% from a spoon once and it was so strong it hurt.. I have a hard time believing anyone could drink over 75-80% without hurting themselves seriously.

I'm drinking right now...as I was last night. The fastest I ever drank was 12 ouces of Vodka. I put it into a beer glass and drank it in about 2 seconds. I was just getting warmed up. I drank another micky afterwards only a little more slowly. That was when I was 24, I can't drink like that anymore. All I have for this weekend is a 40 pounder of Bacardi white rum.
