    Re: Is this illegal in your mind?

    How would we know that cavemen did that, and that it was the first drug ever used?

    Kegs, you are walking right into a "you're so old" joke - don't say I didn't warn you!

    I bet they had mushrooms before or funny colored jungle frogs.

    I've been waiting so long to post that trivia.

    Apparently this is too obvious for anyone to take the bait. Anyone? Hello? It's just sitting there on a silver platter, calling my name. But I can't make an old joke about Kegs - I'm older than him by *mumble mumble* years. Which is odd, since we are both 21. Haha.

    And is the issue of giving cases of beer to 18 year olds an actual one, or a hypothetical one? Because said 18 year old could well have a ma and pa who are counting on that keg of beer to get them thru the day. So he might not be drinking any of it at all.

    OK, I have snapped. Here is my witty response to Kegs:

    WE COULD JUST ASK YOU, COULDN'T WE??

    There, I feel better now.

    How strange, Elly is 19 for almost 10 years, just like me . Well OK, I'm 19 for 27 years now.

    I hope you feel good about yourself after that.

    I'm willing to admit I'm 21, none of this 19 nonsense.

    Yes, much better, thanks.

    You may reciprocate, I deserve it. Go ahead, take your best shot. I won't cry, I promise!

    I may have worded it wrong, forgetting exactly what the pharmacology professor said all those years ago. It might be the first drug ever "produced" or "commonly used". They can infer this from a few simple facts: alcohol readily forms in rotting fruit, times were harsh and people would store and eat decaying mush all the time, this would have happened far more frequently than, say, collecting known poisonous foods and eating them in careful amounts, plus the effects of alcohol (analgesia, euphoria, rowdiness, increased libido) are safer and more practical than vivid hallucinations.

    People would have learned to stay away from those, whereas they had no choice but to eat the rotting food collected days before. It takes so much alcohol to kill a person compared to poisonous mushrooms and berries. Plus, there are the other reasons above. Mushrooms can kill people, especially children, fast whereas alcohol gives a chance to vomit. [More trivia>] Children don't like eating or even trying vegetables for that evolutionary advantage.

    There are different kinds of nerds, and watch out for those closet nerds. They're everywhere.
