I woke up one morning and my keyboard was dangling from my computer desk then I remember when i got home that night i tried taking my keyboard to my bed so i can type from there but because the cord was much too short it obviously didnt reach so from what i could gather i must have just let it go and passed out in my bed right after.

Hmm...


As some of you will remember, I've posted stuff on CF whilst pissed out of my skull.

I've also... deleted people from Facebook and then readded them, insulted people, tried to type and end up posting complete crap...

In short, block anything that could cause offence before you start drinking, that way you can just play games drunk and only harm yourself.

Least everyone is being honest and not giving me a lecture I know I am probably being stupid by drinking but hey I get a bit lonly sometimes on nights on my own when I don't have college the next day, and I play Final Fantasy and drink... I am no alcoholic I take my career very seriously, but I love it as a social and fun thing though I am under age by 1 year...

Thought I'd say that before I get critisized
heh

indeed I've never broken a computer when drunk... but I have posted some really bad messages on forums...

if you know that you're going out for a big drink then it's probably best to unplug your computer to that it seems like too much hassle to work when you get back in!

I've knocked keys off on my keyboard on my laptop with typing so hard when I was drunk which I havent put back on... I've also spilt drinks on it once when I was drunk, once when I was sober

I don't think I've done anything too weird, but it sure was great playing bf2 with about 5 other drunken people. I came home at 2am or so and then played untill 4am or something. It was so great, and we didn't just try and own everyone, we also tried to get kicked/banned out of the server. (and not by tk'ing, since that would be easy & boring) I only managed to get kicked 3 times from a server.. But it was a lot of fun.

I never outdrink on the PC, as I can't go further than 2 beer. Body forces the stop. Although, even with a bottle of beer or something, I operate normally.
