Re: Actual Drnukenness!

Was a bit drnuk last night. Went out drinking, ended up taking a mate to A+E because he was so drunk he managed to fall off of a six foot wall and hit his head whilst sitting down. Drunk people trying to ensure drunker people don't have concussion = endless fun.

There's an energy drink we have in Cyprus called Shark. It tastes almost exactly like Red Bull, but it's clearly cooler because it is called Shark.

Oh, there's also a marijuana flavour energy drink you can get in a couple of supermarkets here. It tastes really weird.
