Commentary on the consumption of alcohol.

What do you all think about this quote?
So the first young man, who had spoken of the strength of wine, started: "Gentlemen, how is it that wine is so superior? It misleads the minds of all who drink it. It makes the mind of the king the same as that of the orphan, likewise of the slave and the free, of the poor and the rich. It changes every thought to feasting and cheerfulness, and forgets all grief and every obligation. It fattens all hearts, makes one remember neither kings nor administrators, and makes everyone talk in outrageous sums. When drinking, people forget to be civil even with their friends and relatives, and after a while they draw their swords. When they recover from the wine, they don't even remember what they did. Gentlemen, isn't wine superior, since it forces people to behave like this?" With that, he stopped speaking.

Do you agree? Disagree? Why or why not?

    OP might have consumed a bit of alcohol himself if one was to look at the title.

    And I think it's pretty well known what alcohol does to practically anyone, especially in a social setting

    Niggas ain't saying whether they agree or disagree....

    well lets change the commentary....
    Gentlemen, is not the king great, and are not men many, and is not wine strong? Who is it, then, that rules them, or has the mastery over them? Is it not women? Women gave birth to the king and to every people that rules over sea and land. From women they came; and women brought up the very men who plant the vineyards from which comes wine. Women make men's clothes; they bring men glory; men cannot exist without women. If men gather gold and silver or any other beautiful thing, and then see a woman lovely in appearance and beauty, they let all those things go, and gape at her, and with open mouths stare at her, and all prefer her to gold or silver or any other beautiful thing. A man leaves his own father, who brought him up, and his own country, and clings to his wife. With his wife he ends his days, with no thought of his father or his mother or his country. Therefore you must realize that women rule over you! "Do you not labor and toil, and bring everything and give it to women? A man takes his sword, and goes out to travel and rob and steal and to sail the sea and rivers; he faces lions, and he walks in darkness, and when he steals and robs and plunders, he brings it back to the woman he loves. A man loves his wife more than his father or his mother. Many men have lost their minds because of women, and have become slaves because of them. Many have perished, or stumbled, or sinned because of women. And now do you not believe me? "Is not the king great in his power? Do not all lands fear to touch him?

    I agree with the first quote. That's why I don't drink heavily in public or with company. The second quote is true too. Why do you do what you do... ultimately its to procreate.

    I was at the zoo earlier today. Birthday party I was invited too. Anyway, I thought all was lost at first. But then, with a little ingenuity and perseverance, I found a snack stand that served daquiris. Got the chick to make me a icee cola with three shots of rum.

    Yep, today was a close one.

    Nigga was cold on the bball court though, I didn't get that starting spot until he stopped coming to school. School let out at 3 we had to stay till the games at 6 so he used to just rap about whatever people talkin about passng time.

    Then he started hanging w C-Loc and them, rappin/hustling whatever, rarely came to school anymore. When he did he would just be Polo down.... come, counting stacks $ at recess, everybody lookin.

    I agree for the most part. But I like being drunk every now and then. Sometimes I just need some new chemicals to rage inside my brain for once.

    Right now I'm on a sober streak, I go in phases of binge drinking and non-binge drinking.
    Times are tough, but they ain't got nothin' on me.
