So you drink. Well done, you.

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I totally refute that adults judge each other by alcohol consumption. I would say they grow out of it by their late teens. Maybe your culture is different. Or maybe you just ( wrongly) perceive it that way.

It is obviously because they feel it makes them "one of the boys".
Where on the forum have people " repeatedly mentioned drinking copius amounts of alcohol". Is it in the VIP section? I don't get what your problem is. Would you complain if they said they were going out to eat two pizzas or a box of snickers? Or is it just alcohol you object to reading about?

Soi Dog wrote: This is not a temperance movement, because I don't give a monkey's toss how much alcohol anyone drinks. Nor should anyone else. We've established that no one cares how much anyone else drinks. So why the need to mention it so often in internet forums like it is some badge of honor?
When was that established? imho, the talking about alcohol shouldn't be censored, and people should be free to mention what they drink, eat or whatever, without being told what they can and cannot mention.

The Temperance Movement comment was a joke, as I had just read another unprovoked rant in the grand thread. Two anti alcohol rants in a row. It's you guys who are making a fuss when others merely mention drinking. Live and let live guys.

Again, I never said anyone shouldn't mention alcohol or shouldn't be allowed to do so. I just asked why people think their drinking preferences are interesting enough to discuss so often, and doesn't writing and reading posts about it ever get boring. Look at my first post. You read the multiple drinking posts in the "living for under a grand" thread, and look in the Cambodia After Dark section. I'm pretty sure if some other posters and myself had several threads about our preference for drinking lots of milk, eventually some of you would say "Dude...what's with all the milk threads/comments. Enough already. No one really cares how, when and why you like to drink f*cking milk, or if you are currently downing two bottles of milk with your buddy".

I think this thread officially qualifies for an 'asinine section' move. :thumb: I should have started it there in the first place.

Alright, I'm just going to unzip and pull it out: I don't judge anyone by how much they drink. I judge them by how well they hold their liquor. I knew a guy who drank 9 beers during the first inning of a world series one time. We were all up the block at a friend's house. I don't remember what he drank after that, but he was cool, so I don't have a problem with him drinking a six-pack-and-a-half like it was water, and he was really fucking thirsty.
Don't drink a few bartles and james and start dancing at The Big M. You look stupid...and European...and like a male freelancer working the female bong thom crowd.

The reason people mention alcohol and not milk, is that they are more interested in alcohol. You can guage what people are interested in, by the amount of times it's mentioned! Milk though, is boring. I have never seen it widely discussed on a forum, or seen people ask the price, or what time it's available till. I doubt there have been many songs or fiction books or movies about drinking milk. Nor are there milk bars on every corner. Because people aren't interested in milk! There seems to be a whole lot of interest in alcohol though. Therefore, it will get mentioned a lot.
