I do read most what happens here, I'm just really tired. That was just a quick one line response. You shave fast, takes me about 10 minutes.

Usually it takes longer if removing facial hair, but I'd not long got out of the shower, so I was nice and warm and the blades didn't tug at the skin.

Don't forget, I've been shaving (almost) daily for 16 years.

Can be, but hasn't been so far for me. I know a few people who may be approaching alcoholism, but so long as I'm not one of them, I'm not too bad.
Yeah, sometimes it's a thin line between "healthy drinking" and "alcoholism".

I wouldn't call it "healthy drinking" by any stretch of the imagination. It's just that drinking more in one hit is worse for you than having the occasional glass of something with a meal, or with friends.

Interesting policy - something like a policy that I'd expect Stalin or a Bond villain to use...
At times they're not understanding at all, which is why I never told them about Newgrounds, not even now.

Every now and again, I show my parents some of the funny pieces that I find on here. They all laughed at Dot Dot Dot...

Uhh barbeque? When was this again?
September. I believe that there is one planned tentatively for New Year's Eve again...
Good, you made the most of barbeque weather then.

No, it was raining. We just didn't care.

I used to say that this level was "groovy", as it was a Chainsaw, akin to Ash's from The Evil Dead. However, now I should say that I hope this level propels you to higher levels.
The chainsaw was a favorite of mine as well. Looking forward to level 40 since it's double katanas. They look more or less the same as they did before.

Should that be a katana / wakisashi combination? I mean it's difficult to wield one katana in one hand, without wielding an identical on in the other...

I shaved yesterday, thought I'd speed shave how you did and I was actually good, I got most of it in about 3 minutes and did fine tuning for 2 so 5 minutes shaving isn't bad. I did cut myself once but cutting myself first time doing it that fast was expected.

Don't forget, I've been shaving (almost) daily for 16 years.

I don't grow beards that fast at all, once a week on a sunday for me.

Yeah, I know, I'm living in the past, but these new level icons really do suck that bad. (These shurikens are ok, I guess...)

I'll be back with a couple more milestones in a few days...

I'm pretty sure things like this are against the Geneva Convention.

Seriously, I like my beer.
As long as you don't drink stuff like Old Nick or Double Chocolate Stout... two of the worst beers I've ever had. And both are from Britain. Coincidence? :P
I've never even heard such shit anyway so you can be at ease.

That's good to hear. Oh, and if you ever come across a beer called "Spitfire", please stay away from it!

Most of my tips on how to shave came from watching the Gillette adverts. But that guy inclines his head up and takes a swipe straight down from the base of his sideburn to the end of his neck-beard. I've never been able to do that.

Don't forget, I've been shaving (almost) daily for 16 years.
I don't grow beards that fast at all, once a week on a sunday for me.

My best friend is blonde and can't grow facial hair anywhere near as well as I can. His Movember effort looked like mine did on day 2!

A whole bottle isn't all as bad as it sounds. Real alcoholics tend to start in the morning when they get up and not stop. A whole bottle wouldn't last until lunch with them.

140,000 total points!

It's rare I even get total point milestones these days. The way I'm going, it'll take me two years just to reach 150,000 total points. I better get to work on earning medals but for now, there is more milestones to come later this week.

I missed out on the Master Sword. What I got instead was the goofy angry face stick. I question why some of the awesome level icons went and were replaced with crappy ones.

Nice job. I'm actually coming up on a total stats milestone, myself. (Though it's not nearly as impressive as that!) :P

Hah, a fair amount are catching up to this many points now but then again, I am lacking in medals and I have a permanent B/P retirement which is something only a minority have done.

Brings back old memories. It's not so bad for me for where I am as if it was the 2007 level icons, I'd be having that butter hammer icon but would be getting the axe within a few days... which is what I have right now.
Yeah, many of the icons in the 50's are actually fairly decent. (I'd be level 52 right now if I had a perfect deposit rating.) LOL I'm going to weep like a school girl the day my potential exp. hits level 60. ;_;

That will be in mid 2015 as that's when I expect to get there.

It's more easy to simply list the good drinks. :P

Cider, for example.

Can we start with Guinness? I know it's not cider but it's still a good start.

This is why I'm listening to the Foos at the moment...

And it's always this time of year where the sun really shines into my eyes. I may have to get out my shades at this point and this is fucking December.

Sorry for my lack of posting recently, I'm just a little bit down and depressed after recent events. Rest assured, I'll get back into the swing of things soon.

Actually, that's the way I wanted to spell the word at first. But somehow, it looked more "wrong". I should just trust my instincts more.
As the Beast (an opponent on a quiz show) says - "Go with your gut."

Nice idiom.

A whole bottle isn't all as bad as it sounds. Real alcoholics tend to start in the morning when they get up and not stop. A whole bottle wouldn't last until lunch with them.
There are no "real" alcoholics, since there are no "not real" alcoholics. You can be an alcoholic if you drink one bottle of wine each day. You can be an alcoholic if you don't drink anything, except for some weekends, where you drink huge amounts of alcohol... you can also be an alcoholic, if you drink only one glass of wine as a stress reliever each day... or you just drink the wine, because you want it, not because you NEED it.
I stand corrected.

Well, my grandfather used to be an alcoholic (he died a long time ago. If the alcohol had something to do with it, I don't know. But it is possible), so it's a very personal matter... and that's why I know quite a lot about alcoholics.

I've never tried it, so I can't say anything about it. But lots of people I know say that Guinness isn't really that great. But Kilkenny is nice! I know, it's Irish and not British... but who the hell cares.

I've never been a huge Guinness fan, though I did recently try their new Black Lager which I enjoyed thoroughly. Have any of you guys every tried your hand at homebrewing? I bought a starter kit about a year or so ago and have done a few batches since. It's a must-try if you're feeling adventurous and love beer. :P

Fair enough. I know a couple of recovering alcoholics, who have been dry for over a decade combined, which is some achievement. After my paternal grandmother passed away, my grandfather tried to drink himself to death, but he failed. That is nearly six years ago and he's still with us...

Craig Ferguson (that guy from The Late Late Show on CBS) has told some stories about his alcoholism, for example when Brittney Spears went into rehab. Very interesting.
But drinking yourself to death... hm, there are a lot quicker and less painful ways to end your own life. When I was doing my civillian service, I saw a guy who was in his mid 30's... he looked like he was 70! I asked one of the nurses what was up with this guy and she said: "He drank his whole life away."
He died a few days later.

I've seen my fair share of alcoholism in my family, as well. My grandmother did manage to drink herself to death and my uncle has been in and out of jail and without a driver's license for most of his adult life due to the stupid crap he did while drinking. It's taught me a hardy respect for moderation, that's for sure. :\

On the topic of exp. levels, I'd imagine it must be slightly bittersweet, reaching level 60. You know, seeings how you'll never level up again. (Unless more levels are added at some point down the road, that is.) Hopefully there wont be, or I'll be fucking 90 before I finally reach the end with all my missed deposits. lmao

Homebrew made from a high-quality extract kit is actually quite good. Not to mention that the beer you make yourself is the best beer you'll ever taste, believe me. :P Maybe others wouldn't agree, but who gives a shit what they think. lol

Oh, and I just got 37,000 b/p.
