No idea why I tried this over the weekend (nor why I failed to mention it before), but eggnog and Jack Daniels actually works.  Could there be anything more dangerous to me?  I mean, besides running with the bulls after drinking the described concoction.

Oh, you have to stir it a bit, because the two do not want to mix evenly.  If you do not stir, you end up getting a shot of Jack with a eggnog chaser in the same swallow.

That sounds good!

I wonder how it would be with something from my scotch collection...

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

The left-leaning news magazine website (obligatory disclosure, and not important here) Salon.com had a nice history of eggnog.  In there is one line describing George Washington's love of the stuff:
Washington must have been a big fan of eggnog, because he had his own special recipe that, in addition to eggs, milk and cream, was spiked with brandy, whisky, rum and sherry.

Makes just whiskey seem sort of weak and flabby, huh?

Also in Holland they have a drink called Advocaat with is a thick spiked eggnog you actually spoon.

That said, I can't stand eggnog.  But please pass the whiskey!

YIKES! Being as I LOVE whiskey, Just a little TOO much,I find it very dangerous in ANY form. I could drink cat p**s,if you mixed a healthy dose of Black Velvet in it.
How dangerous....hmmm...let me see....
I was arrested on my 21st B-Day for DUIL.
The next year I wrapped a 1962 GMC pickup around a tree.(not even my truck-I was on a booze run for me and my fishing buddy.Boy was He p**sed.)
I feel asleep on a railroad track on Long Island.
I jumped out of a moving vechicale doing about 60 mph.
I fell asleep in the middle of the road in a blizzard walking home from the bar.
I fell through a plate glass window(twice)
I stabbed my self in the hand demonstrating the wrong way to open a can of chili.
I stuck a shotgun under my chin in a totally insane mood and pulled the trigger.(Good thing I lived on the top floor of my apartment building.Lucky that the gun jumped as well!)
I went to court for a pre trial hearing s**tfaced out of my mind.  The Judge was NOT impressed.Did a week.
Me and my brother got inna fight with about Six people in NYC,( lucky for us,the cops showed up.)
I burned a hole in my mattress about the size of a shoe with a lit ciggerette.
I left the gas on my stove and feel asleep.(lucky a freind came over and woke me up.)
I'm sure you git the picture!

RCMerchant, I also had some trouble with booze. I was arrseted for DUI after I crashed My grandfathers car here in NYC. My mom was very upset because she works for NYPD and I knew some of the cops. It was stupid and I learned my lesson. I still drink on occasion but don't go near a car.

Other time that wasn't my fault my friend (now ex-friend) left me on the expressway. He pulled over to take a p**s as well as myself. He then hopped in car and left me. I was drunk(but not that bad) and called my mom on my cell while walking down the expressway trying to get to exit to tell her where to pick me up. Eventually the cops came though I was crazy called a paramedics and they took me to the hosptial where I was picked by my mom.

The bastard called me up the next day like everything was ok. Told him to leave me alone.Never talked to him again. I knew him for 5 years.

I am very impressd with those of you who are taking on additiction of any kind... booze, smoking, what have you.  Its tough to depend so much on something and then just stop doing it.  I'm an ex-smoker myself, but my habit was too short a duration to make the weaning too painful.   
Hold the line guys!

I thank God that I've never been able to stomach hard liquor of any kind.
Whiskey, vodka, rum etc....I can't even stand the smell of them.

I've always been a beer drinker.

I know what it's like to go on an alcoholic bender.
Immediately following the death of my younger brother just over 3 years ago, I hit the beer pretty hard.
For months after that, I would drink at least 4-5 nights a week.

There are many threads here on this very board from that time that I barely remember writing.
Sometimes I'll do a search of some of my old threads from back then and read what I wrote.  The memories of writing them are either very vague or non-existent.

RC...you mentioned leaving the stove on and then falling asleep.
I've done the exact same thing.
Years ago, I came home hammered from the bar and put a frozen pizza in the oven. 
Then I passed out.
I awoke in the morning, sat up in bed and the first thing that entered my mind was, "THE PIZZA!!"
I got out of bed and the entire apartment smelled like something had been badly burned.
The first thing I did was go to the oven, see that it was shut off and opened the door.
Inside was this small charred black disc that used to be a pizza.

My roommate later told me that he had gotten up in the middle of the night and shut the oven off.

I pay attention to my drinking, because it is something I have seen take down a number of people.   

Alcohol and smoking ruined my father's health.  Overall, the genes from both side of my family are long-lived, but dad passed away a few years ago.  His blood tests often came back with a note from the lab, due to the toxins in his blood.

     Well, I can see that this is a very serious subject for a lot of us here --
     I can't help but wonder if a lot of it is cultural, though --
      In some cultures, a daily consumption of amounts of alcohol that would leave some folks over here scratching their heads or screaming is considered quite normal.
     Example:  My best friend in Iceland, Binni, gently consumes about a bottle of Brenevin -- aka "The Black Death" -- a day, and has done for the last 10 years or so.  Prior to that, it was quite a bit more.  He's almost 90 now, so he has, in his own words, "cut back a bit".  He was a mainstay of Flugfelag, the Icelandic interisland airway for 40 years, and before that was a fighter pilot for the British in WW2 -- First man to waterski in Iceland.
Responsible, father, grandfather, mainstay of Reyjavikian society, horse breeder & commercial fisherman, etc. etc.  Yet, in our culture, he would be considered a chronic Alcoholic/man with "A Problem" solely based on the amount of booze he takes in.
     I can think of other examples from Orkney, Uist, Mainland Scotland, etc.
     Point of fact:  In some Western cultures, you are expected to consume -- by our standards -- prodigous amounts of alcohol as a matter of course.  Champagne is served around the clock and on the job in the offices of the BBC, for instance.
     Personally, I think that our cultural standards of what constitutes "problem drinking" in America are quite low, and people act according to what the cultural norm is expected of them.  Therefore, you get people throwing a violent fit after 6 American-style beers -- alcohol 4% -- because somewhere in their mind they think they have a cultural expectation or permission to do so.  In other cultures, you don't find that boundry created until 16 or 17 7% beers are consumed, eg. soccer hooligans, and other culture roles.
     It's a bit like the business of "running amouck" in Indonesia -- No other culture gives a tacit permission to "sober" men to suddenly run around screaming and cutting people with machetes because they believe their penises are being sucked into their bodies -- yet there they do.
     I'm a bit sensitive about this issue in our culture, as I see the MADD organization, and the cultural ripples it's created, to be another form of Civic Religion, and I think we've had quite enough of that.

Tonight, being Christmas Eve and all my wife and myself will be imbibing eggnog with brandy, whipped cream and Cinnamon, will let you know the results tomorrow, this sort of thing just puts us to sleep. Cheers
