You tell 'em mate. But i must admit that i wasn't too impressed with Montreal when i visited about 3 months ago.....but at least i found some sort of alcohol, unlike in america (i just got back today; jet-lag blows) where the stupid laws prevent anybody from having some good proper fun.

I always meant to go to America and not drink, y'know, while I still couldn't. There's a whole drinking and counter-drinking culture in the US that I don't understand. I'll divide it up.
Firstly, American colleges are portrayed as drugged-up beered-up frat houses with parties all day, and little or no work being done. I know this is not the case. Get a grip. I'm guessing that British students drink more frequently (seeing as we drink every day. We're like less fussy versions of winos). Yet Americans, despite all this massive drink-a-thon they give us in concept can't actually drink to save their lives. Note the subtle irony in that, liver-merchants.
Secondly. I understand that some people in America don't want to drink. I wouldn't want to be drunk in a country where there are that many guns. I'd say something stupid. Offending a lot of people is second nature to me. Really it is. But I kinda like the no-drinking ideal. Except it gives rise to people like the lovely (though impossibly shaped and impeccably bizarre) Jennifer Love-Hooters saying that they'd be crazy if they drank, thinking that a few childish pranks are crazy.
I think what I'm saying is this. "Life, like a lot of things, works a lot better when lubricated". Drink, in moderation, but a lot occasionally. Don't not drink, but you can not drink if you wish.
Dang I lost it. Just enjoy yourselves and stay within the boundaries of the law, Patrick.
