Fnorder, if you ever want to play that game, be wary, be very wary of the Japaneses. Most can't stand a light beer without getting flushed, but those who can... oh boy.

geting rid of any cultural trait whatsover sounds like fun too, why is everybody so keen to amass more?.

Did you teach them how to say Melbourne properly? They seem to think it's some type of bun.

@Sam: Only had the pleasure of drinking the weaker ones under the table. Also one Maori rugby player, though that took some considerable effort.

@Mizike: We tried to stay away from controversial and potentially offensive topics like that. Religion and politics are muuuuch safer.

I remember freshmen year of college...challenging a japanese girl to a game of quarters....not realizing she'd been working at a bar for like 2 years prior to coming to the states.


Never had my ass whipped at quarters quite so hard.

I've spent my NYE with a bunch of Australians. While the cultural distance isn't that large, geographically you can hardly get further. The most fun part was when the poor Aussies tried to outdrink us Poles, the inventors of vodka Very Happy Poor poor fellows, the hangover must've been of biblical proportions...


When I was a tad younger I was having a quiet drink with a young, petite welsh girl, we got half way through our 7th bottle of vodka before I had to call it quits. Still to this day I can't believe the capacity that she could drink, me, I'm an alcoholic who drinks alcoholics under the table and would gladly drink vodka with the poles.

Were those 0.5l bottles, or 1l bottles?

Anyway that's impressive, but far from amazing. The Russians are amazing. I mean drinking vodka from tall glasses? Amazing

I'm not a big fan of vodka anyway. Not since a bachelor party that sent me straight to the hospital with a concussion :-/ Now I know better. I hope.

.75l bottles. I've drunk with Russians before when I was working on a mine site. They were a state sponsored delegation who came over to check out the extraction technology for the low grade ore. I have never seen so much vodka drunk. It was something like 12 Russians and 20 staff got rid of 48 bottles of vodka 36 bottles of red wine and the same in white then the delegation went to the wet mess and proceeded to drink everyone else under the table me included.
