Drinking. While you're chugging, I'll be having the REAL fun.

I'm not against drinking if you're of age, but I think of all places to do it at, why at a 24-hour con?

My point being, if there's so much stuff to do already, why do something you could do any time.

That's a dumb reply.

Because where else do you go and hotel/room hop and get drunk, THEN go do stuff. Not all of us are into anime 24/7 365 and can never take our eyes off of it. Some people like to get laid. Some people like to have fun. Looking at cartoon porn isn't as fun unless you're wasted. roflcoppter.

Whats the difference between sitting around talking with people eating Pockey and discussing anime and sitting around at a bar discussing anime? Bars are social places, you go there to talk about the topic of the day which in this case is anime, manga, etc. Plus it is a great way to get away from kids.

Okay, be nice guys.

Drinking is seen as a social affair mostly, heck, take China during business deals! Drinking is usually associated with a fun time. ACen is that time, you're surrounded by friends, you have the time off work, time to sit back and have fun! While some don't perceive drinking as fun, others do. Drinking games, home-made mixes, stuff like that.
Many people also use it to loosen up to have a bit more fun. Most of the time, ACen is the one time in a year where people get a full weekend to kick back and have fun, not to mention it is a big event that people mark on their calander a year in advance.

I don't drink, never have, never will. I have friends that do though and I can see why, I just don't want to be around it myself.

So Audacious, if you have an issue with drinking at con, just stay away from people that do and go have fun with your friends.

It's all about fun, it's gotta be fun. If it's not fun, then it's not fun. Fun is the main reason we have fun! Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun

Yeah you can drink any time, but how often can you drink with a bunch of other anime nerds??? For me it's very rarely.

You need to chill, stop being so rude to people. You're entitled to your opinion, let others be entitled to theirs.

I drink at con's so I can goto my room and cry tears of sorrow and watch yaoi :(

I'am a sad sad man
My barren plan to be a better man
Rots in abandoned fields
These idle hands inherit spoiled lands
As the hungry become the pigs
We reap (and) we sow
We mourn who we were
Love what we lost

I TOTALLY AGREE... (Not that i'm really againist it, persay.)

Adults drink at every gathering because they're bored iwth life... why would you need to drink a fun con already?!

I dont really get it, but my roomies are... it will be interesting.

Alcohol is a depressant after all. :lol:

I'm not a fan of drinking to get drunk, but I'm not going to get all preachy or vote to re-enact the 18th amendment.

Actually, drinking at a hotel is probably ideal. You don't have to drive home. You (probably) don't have work or class the next day. And you walk to your room... or into someone else's?

PS binge drinking is bad for your health :)

Some people enjoy drinking, some don't.

You can be just as social(or more) while drinking as you are sober. Just as long as people don't start causing problems then that shouldn't be bad, right?

Plus, some of us are not white enough to go on a vacation, so we go to ACen, a nice weekend getaway where we can lay back and relax.

Is it, or can it be a joke?

Lately the joke was used by Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw.
