Is it ever NOT bullshit when someone says they blacked-out while drinking?

    Gosh it seems like people always forget the parts of the previous night that were most embarrassing. They don't seem to have any problems remembering the good times.

    The only time I've ever forgotten something was when I was lying in bed about to fall asleep, and even then when told about it, it all came back to me.

    Whenever I hear someone say "what happened last night?" or "whuow I don't remember that...", I think they're a liar. Am I wrong?

    I've had exactly one "blackout" where I consciously did things and had to be told about them after the fact. That was after a six-pack of Bass Ale and 10 B-52's. Never did THAT again. icon_eek.gif

    I definitely think that people can black out and not remember stupid shit they say and do. However, if they particularly remember good things and forget embarrassing stuff from the same drunken episode, they need to have their shit called out!

    Um, I've definitely blacked out before. It's not a good feeling...definitely not something worth replicating.

    And if someone uses that excuse too often, just call them an alcoholic. Haha.

    I see, so I experienced a "brownout".

    Damn legitimate blackouts, preventing me from judging all cases with a broad paint brush, in black and white strokes.

    I've always remembered every second of wild drunken nights, even at absolute shit faced inebriation. Lol college.

    I've had a few experiences in my younger years where I just don't remember anything beyond a certain point in the night. It is possible. Part of the learning curve of responsible drinking I guess.

    Its very possible and happens to quite a few people. Especially people who drink a lot in a short period of time.

    Not everyone experiences complete loss of time, for most the events just become hazy and they aren't really sure what happened.

    It can be scary and is a sign that you drink too much.
