There is nothing as complete as Flash for digital animation. Nothing even comes close.
That said, Wikipedia says there are many 2D animation software products out there.

Yeah, but Flash also cost a few hundred dollars I don't have and can't afford. I was looking more for a personal recommendation as in "I've used ________, ________, and _______. While none are as good as Flash, ________ does a fairly decent job, while ________ is ok. Don't touch ________ with a ten foot pole."

I'm looking to make a game BTW, or at least a prototype that will look good in a video.

Why do people get drunk and then complain about being hung over? And then keep doing that?

There are probably a lot of answers to that question, depending on the reason a person has for drinking. For me, it's because getting drunk with the right people and in the right circumstances is fun, and hangovers are not. So that's pretty much the answer to both questions.

If you are getting hung over you never bothered to calculate the appropriate amount of alcohol your body can handle.

"Handle" is a fairly vague term. I can handle a lot of alcohol in the sense that I can drink it and survive the experience. I can handle significantly less if I choose to avoid a hangover without hydrating. There's an amount between that I can handle if I choose to keep up on hydration.

But, sometimes avoiding a hangover isn't the primary concern.

Man, hangovers are the best thing ever. They make you care approximately 0 about your worldly concerns, just make you lie in bed, realize your alive, and then get on with it. Every one is a moment for reflection.

I don't drink much, but I know the point where I would get hungover is usually the point where getting drunker wouldn't be very pleasant to me anyways.

I only have two datapoints here, but both times I've gotten a hangover the booze made me feel kind of ill shortly after drinking it and the hangover was actually less unpleasant than that, headaches and all.
and there were other times that I could kind of tell that I was at that point and I just stopped drinking

also wow I don't think I've even had so much as a glass of wine in months
I have a bottle in the cupboard, I just never felt like opening it
also there's some Irish cream which is pretty much my favorite
but meh

alcoholism doesn't seem to be on the horizon for me, I guess

I now have an image in my head of myself old and passed out drunk in a gutter.

Could be worse, you could wake up still hammered.

Totally relevant. Every time I meet someone who says they never get hangovers I know how old they are... and they always think they have some magical power. As I turn 30 I find I don't handle it as well as I used to, not so much the headaches as the GI upset. I drink less now because if I get wasted on Saturday I'll still have a gurgley stomach at work on Monday, and that's just not worth it.

I never get hangovers. Never have. Hasn't gotten any worse with age, either.

I wonder if it would change if I started drinking...
