“Oh man I’m so wasted! Oh man, my heart hurts!”
~Americans doing it RIGHT
America loves alcohol, but many find that, as they get older, it’s strangely more difficult to stay awake all day while pounding vodka until the pain goes away. That’s why we often try to find inventive ways to keep on partying. In the 80’s, it was Cocaine. In the 90’s, it was heroin, which of course led to a record number of liver failures because surprisingly, junkies don’t understand how heroin or alcohol work. In the 70’s, it was probably that one poster where you could see Farrah Fawcett’s tit. But in the 00’s and 10’s, alcohol and caffeine has been America’s upper of choice. Anyone who has ever been to a bar where the DJ makes drink specials announcement while sounding like he works at a strip club has been exposed to various drinks involving Red Bull, and probably has ordered said drink when they started to feel themselves fading.
Of course, medical experts tend to point out that mixing energy drinks with alcohol is dangerous, and could even be potentially life-threatening. While the government might stop Four Loko from caffeinating up their drinks, they can’t stop Americans from pouring five ounces of a Monster energy drink down the drain to top it off with vodka, so it’s time for us to bring back our Point/Counter-point series as we address…
