thin man movies

I like those movies, too. I was shocked at the amount of alcohol those folks throw back in the course of one of those films. Amazing. I'd suggest a drinking game where you take a drink every time Nick and/or Nora do, but then you'd probably end up getting your stomach pumped instead of having the anticipated jolly old time.

Re: thin man movies

You said it. The first one came right after the repeal of Prohibition and was thus deliberately celebrating the return of legal liquor. There are also lots of hangovers depicted. Wacky.

I was thinking, while standing in the shower last night, about the 20s and what that alcohol (and cocaine) fueled culture must have really been like.

I have a hard time drinking more than a beer or two these days. Now I just drink the taurine-laced energy drink of the moment and let that high stand-in for the drunkenness it would otherwise mask.
