Default I am impossibly drunk.

And regardless of my ability to spell, this holds true. Discuss?

I love you all, truly, and so much.

Let it happen.

I don't believe you on account of your ability to spell.

I also spell perfectly when drunk. I may have to do some extra proofreading, but it's rare for me to let an error slip by. The only way to tell I'm posting drunk is by how badly I embarrass myself. So, yeah, I don't doubt this thread was started under the influence.

pfft!
FACT: if you can still type on a keyboard then you're not drunk enough, so go down some raw vodka then come back.

COUNTEREXAMPLE: On the occasion on which I was the most drunk that I have ever been (like, to the point of not being able to operate my legs properly - note that I DO NOT recommend doing this), I was perfectly capable of operating my cell phone, and even keeping track of how many times I had called individual people (as evidenced by the growing irritability of the voicemail messages that I left). I even managed to avoid drunk-dialing the truly embarrassing numbers (work supervisor, research adviser, grandparents, etc.), and limited myself to leaving a barely-coherent message with Shinji Ikari-esque levels of angst and self-loathing for my would-be girlfriend at the time.

(Note also that the complications arising from this unique relationship dynamic were among the primary reasons that I got this drunk in the first place, and that the fallout from this incident resulted in several similar escapades, including: babbling about how I stopped watching Bleach fansubs at like episode 30 when some friends dropped by the dorm room to hang out and discovered me lying shirtless and semicoherent on the floor surrounded by a pile of broken furniture and with said program on TV; and getting kicked out of a bar by a police officer when I attempted to demonstrate my sobriety by pointing out loudly and repeatedly that he was, in fact, a Houston Police Department officer and not a Harris County Sheriff's Deputy)

In all of the above situations, I was perfectly capable of framing a coherent sentence, and probably just as capable of typing one.

I'll type something, and then have to force my eyes to keep all the words from moving around, but damn it, I'll get out that 2 sentence reply even if it takes me 5 minutes to make sure there are no spelling or grammar mistakes.

I also have impeccable spelling and grammar when drunk, I do however often use <i>the wrong format tags</i> when under the influence.

Ah ok, yes I can concentrate and avoid those horrible conversations over the phone, but when in front of a keyboard I can't type properly and I don't care about editing the posts (proofreading whilst drunk is cheating).

This is exactly what happened!

I was worried my evening-after checkup on this post would bring a cold slap of embarrassment, but no... my e-dignity suffers naught, or negligibly.

Same, but with TMNT and Pac-Man CE.

Pac-Man CE is a trip when drunk, with the techno music banging and whatnot.

During the first time I ever got drunk, I watched Hostel.

That's pretty much the only reason I remember it being an awesome movie.

I drank so much Saturday that I am still feeling it 36 hours later. I think I might have accidentally gotten sick while my body was fighting off the poison I was consuming in mass quantities.

Same here. Text messaging is impossibly hard, but damn it, I hate spelling errors!

My own observations have lead me to believe that most people don't necessarily play better, but they play more awesomely.

I just type super-fast when drunk and am usually really hyper and want to move onto something else, so even if I notice a mistake I probably won't do anything about it or figure I'll deal with it when sober.

I've only been drunk ONE TIME in my whole life, and I puked on my friend's Xbox.

This was before the good Xbox came out and it was just that old shitty black one.

Take that, Micro$oft!

This post will contain Too Much Information.

I had my first hangover today! And last night was the first time I've been really and truly drunk... had some whiskey with a friend, then my flatmate invited me to have a few beers (ended up at seven beers). The problem is that it turns out the meds I'm on interact poorly with alcohol in largish quantities. There was much throwing up I'm afraid. Thankfully, my flatmate did a great job guiding me through the experience and made sure I drank lots of water to get everything out of my system. Indeed I now feel almost normal. And I've cleaned everything up and life is good.

But I don't think I'm going to be having anything much stronger than Diet Coke for the next few days.

There is a certain school of thought that says more of what messed you up in the first place is good for what ails ya.

You know what sucks?

Being hungover and being sick to your stomach and colon, but the only bathroom in the house is being occupied by your friend's dad, who takes HOUR LONG SHOWERS.

Worst hangover ever.

Yeah, that means absolutely nothing actually. The people who handle alcohol the best are the ones who learn what it's like to drink it and all the attendant crap before they go to college party land.

In what manner does that mean absolutely nothing? I'm sure there are some that would disagree.

I'm pretty sure the entirety of Europe and Asia would like to say hi. It's not unusual in those entire geographic areas for families to allow their kids to drink a bit as they grow older just to prevent the kind of partying American kids do. They also have much lower rates of drinking related crimes done by youngsters because their parents taught them responsible drinking habits.

I don't drink myself, unless it's a social situation and even then not much.

Yeah alcohol was introduced very casually into my life by my family. I started being able to have a glass of wine with meals at around 16. It was never a big deal to me as my parents demystified it. I drink to the state of actually being drunk maybe once or twice a year, and mostly just drink socially or have a glass of scotch or brandy or wine once a week. Binge drinking is harmful and only a big deal in America because of the way we treat alcohol.
