going out on the piss is great - the "drinking culture" in the uk is the best in the world (apart from ireland maybe) - i wouldnt change a thing
Tend to agree. A decent night on the lash is always good fun (unless you try and match LoFi pint for pint, in which case you'll just vomit). Mind you going out on the piss was great in Madrid when I lived there, as it is in the US, France and everywhere else I've been out on the piss in. Mind you raving was excellent when my body could still take the hangover and I really like smoking too.
Scotland (or rather Glasgow, Ayrshire and Lanarkshire, known as the Buckfast triangle) has clearly got issues with alcoholism and buckfast is pretty much the drink of the devil. It's not called wreck the hoose juice for nothing. Maybee they should put Temgesics or Temazepam in it instead of caffine...

Plenty of bargains to be had.
Something I really don't get is the "Lads Night Out" ritual.
A number of my mates go on these every so often and there seems to be some kind of rule that you have to keep piling down the pints and shots until you lose consciousness. Without exception none of the people I know actually enjoy them and see them as a bit of an ordeal. There is lots of talk of hiding in the toilets to avoid having to take part in rounds of shots or pouring pints into plant pots etc. I do sometimes wonder if anyone is actually having fun or if they are all forcing each other to drink more and more while secretly wishing they could just stop.
Our bassist (from Glasgow) has echoed ICBM's sentiments that by far the biggest problem for the Scots is Buckie.
I just had this vision of the monks of Buckfast abbey kicking back on sunloungers in Barbados on the profits, all the while defending their product by saying it is responsibly enjoyed by the majority of purchasers.
Of course they're sipping Pina Coladas, rather than their own brew.
