Blackout.

There's something about a getting hammered with the lads situation that is sort of cosmic and profound. in a way it's a battle to the death. You all go mad and one of you 'dies' symbolically. Pukes maybe, or passes out or pisses themselves. There's something going on when this happens. Something very important. You are reborn afterwards, for better or for worse.

He always does this! Alpha shaman trying to divert energy way from Sufi! Delete the thread Sufi!
I don't approve of Sufi woolly liberalism. He loves the all male khat lodges of Yemen and Somalia. He needs to accept this about himself.

It's true. We've been around it a few times before. It's a type of cosmic re-alignment that occurs. The next day, I often find myself spiritually refreshed. It's not really a new sense of hope because it's not tied to anything specific. It's more of a hope of hope. An affirmation of the possibility of a something bright and wonderful.

It's related to Phillip K Dick saying that "the symbols of the divine initially show up at the trash stratum".

You have to dig yourself deep in the shit in order to come out clean.

There's a suspension of time and reality in the blackout zone. The roulette wheel spins and your ball can land on any number of possible outcomes, from perfect rebirth, clean as a whistle, to having taken on a whole load of your friends grubby karma

When you lose part of you wants to stage an immediate rematch. But it doesn't work like that.

I do miss the long weekends. Up most of Sunday. Collective mindmeld and bonding. Perhaps a takeaway Sunday night if anyone can bring themselves to eat. Not quite what you're talking about I guess but still hedonic excess currently denied me.

Think the black-outee is on the short end of the stick here. Being amongst the group that is hammered, but still keeping it together for the blacked out person, is bonding, regenerative. I've gotten alot from being absolutely shmacked but nothing from completely blacking out.

theres a feeling of Ok time to get my shit togetherness the morning after blacking out but seeing as how I kept doing it I dont know how much was actually gained.

I don't mean blackout as in pass out necessarily. I mean the state where no memory formation is possible. The Souless Man. The Latah.

You're overthinking overdrinking.

I read a crazy post last night that links royal crests on breweries to underground cannibal cities. Sigils to denote who owns the drinkers. Pubs are portals to a man made hell, it's proposed.

I've never had memory loss without the throwing up and passing out unfortunately
