    I've tried one of the three (alcohol) and found it has no positive value in my mind. The other two I have less than no interest in ever experiencing, period. Hell, I don't even like taking prescription pain medication

    No one is ever going the 'change somebody's mind' on one of these boards.

    If someone with two brain cells functioning reads something on here, and hesitates but a moment while reading it and thinks that there might be another valid point of view (no matter how wrong they believe it might be) then the board has served it's purpose. *salutes*

    And laughing at the morons.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    Well, where I live making and drinking beer is legal. I don't know many people who don't drink a beer or two every now and then. But that's an individual choice.

    How about stimulants? Do you ever drink any coffee or tea?

    It's legal here too. I just don't see any positive use for it in a consumable form.

    No coffee. A little bit of diet green tea (cold) and an occasional caffeinated beverage (coca cola most often).

    : There may even be some things that can't be debated, since most of those are only personal opinions, and not backed up by facts or studies made on the subject. Even then, they are not likely, in most cases, to change anyone's mind! It does let you know how their mind works, though, so that's a plus.

    I don't mind that as much as I do debating against people who are just factually wrong, yet keep arguing otherwise. I had to do that recently. Usually happens in economic subjects.

    Yeah, there are a few like that on here. They apparently can't believe that anyone would disagree with their view, even when it's been proven wrong, but just can't seem to let it go. Is it self importance, or do they just enjoy arguing?

    Greetings, Gipper. Hope you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving.
