After putting on my detective head (and looking back through the posts) it seems the guilty ones are KarlEjnar, Dubois & Wave.

Welcome one and all to the 8% Club!

I've been drinking for 20 years, if you count wine on the weekends. sort of a french mentality. spirits, 9 yrs, and scotch 5 yrs.

I'm 34, and according to my rugby club I will be considered a veteran at my next birthday! I'm hoping that there are privileges attached to this but somehow I doubt it. However, there is Talisker above the bar to help soften the blow.

Bailey's??

Pull the other one! If that almost empty bottle was Bailey's, your eyes'd be closed and the bottle would be on the floor...

Or did your mummy cut it with milk?

Wimp!

24 here. When I was 13-16 I exclusively drank vodka (when it comes to alcohol), with only one purpose. I stopped drinking after that. Then when I turned 21 I decided to see what else was out their in the magical world of distilled spirits and beer, and came to realize that these things actually have a flavor and can be nice to sip. These days, I can't even drink vodka, or take shots (unless I've had a few); it triggers my gag reflex. I generally drink very slowly, although sometimes I will quickly drink a beer or something.

No! No! Seriously, when I first looked at this thread tonight, the pic of LSD and his bottle of Baby-Baileys had been replaced with this Orwellian quote: "You do not have the required permissions to view these files."

I was afraid the evil hand of censorship had struck, and protested...but when I got back to the thread the pic was back!

Thankyou! this is spooky...

Yes folks, I'm 56 and expecting my second child on christmas day! As Tina Turner once said:

"People think I'm getting old - I'm just getting started!"

I've been saving a bottle of Springbank 21 a generous gent GAVE me(!!!True) to open when the new one appears..

We won't be feeding it Bailey's by the way. We believe in breastfeeding...

Well I've thought about this. I've asked relatives (especially my Mother), I've looked out my birth certificate, I've checked the census, I've considered the fact that my eldest daughter is 17, I've counted the number of cars that I've owned, I've thought about the fact that I have owned a considerable number of houses, I've even checked the dates on the records in my collection and I find myself faced with the brutal truth that I am no longer 21. It turns out that I am in fact 44 :o . How can this be? I think I have to reconcile myself with the fact that I didn't do a single sensible thing for the first 25 years of my life. By this logic I started to grow up from that point and I am now 19. Ah its good to be young!
