METAMORPH said[cut for length]That makes sense. What I don't understand is people who are like "OMFG HAHHAHA REMEMBER THAT TIME U PUSHED ME AND I FELL IN THE BUSHESS!!! OR THAT OTHER TIME I PUKED ON THE LAWN AND PASSED OUT LMFAOO" and it's like that doesn't sound like fun at all unless you're legitimately stupid.
That isn't to say I wouldn't have any fun otherwise, just that the alcohol acts as an acute catalyst and turbo boost to the mood (whatever that may be) already established.
I hear ya. I think the difference is though, when you're inebriated, 'wild' acts that would otherwise feel completely stupid, inane and embarrassing when sober, just feels utterly hilarious and invokes a genuine, deep-bellied, prolonged laughter and/or adrenaline rush excitement at the time- especially when others are also tipsy and joining with the crazyness.
Knowing in the back of your mind how silly this to others, or how it would be to yourself if you weren't drunk, only makes it seem funnier at the time because you don't give a shit and are laughing at the scenario/yourself too- an 'inside joke' that those who are are in the same drunken-boat share to the exclusion of the sober, almost.
Thinking back on it when sober is usually evokes a nostalgic inner-chuckle with a tinge of embarrassment, the ratio of each varying depending on how 'wild' the acts actually were.
This type of fuckery is usually reserved to when there has been to many drinks downed in too short a time period: waayyyy past the conventional amount that just gives a nice but mellow 'buzz'.
This type of behaviour is binge related for sure, so, not really an accurate description of the vast majority of drinking scenarios. Mostly what young people who aren't really used to drinking responsibly will do, at first.
Puking is always nasty though- that is never funny/cute in my book.
