81BikeageThu 10th Sep 2009 Alcohol is very useful. For centuries alcoholic beverages provided hydration and sustenance in a world lacking modern sanitation and knowledge of foodborne pathogens. Without alcohol civilization would have stagnated. I've been at both ends of the spectrum, from Xstraight edgeX to an admitted alcoholic in my 30+ years.... like most things, even video games, moderation is the key. Now I just got home from work after a long day, so it's time to crack open a cold one. I know i've had too many when I get on the shop channel and download something like Blue's Journey. "Put. That. Coffee. Down. Coffee's for closers only."
