    I went out with my creative team to Medieval Times last night! (For those of you who don't know, it's a big castle where you are served medieval fare and you watch jousting and swordfighting medieval-style. It's a bit Disneyland-ish but can be fun!) We ordered drinks on the company in these glasses that were almost as big as my head. It wasn't quite as big as my head, but really not much smaller either. The glass would have made a good home for a goldfish.

    I wobbled around carrying the glass. It was quite a trick to maneuver it to the table! It was then we made the Drunken Rule that one should try not to eat or drink things bigger than one's head.

    Drunken Rule #1. Don't eat or drink things larger than your head.

    Now, it's easy to point out that watermelons are indeed bigger than most people's heads. But WHO tries to eat an entire watermelon? No one! Therefore watermelons don't count as "food larger than one's head." One should not try to eat a slice of watermelon larger than one's head.

    Have you ever made any Drunken Rules?

  2. what about a yard of beer? it's most definitely narrower than ones head but much, much longer

    there must always be exceptions!

    So I am a no one now eh? And after I believed you that you liked my cowbell...
  4. I want to party with you, disenchant.
  5. Just the ol' standby, "no puking on the carpet".

    There was talk of banning Sharpies. In reality, a far too enjoyable way to be mean to your friends to ever get rid of.

    No pissing on the walls, and no knives longer than 6 inches.

    fun times.

    passing out with your shoes on makes you fair game for anything, and you can't get mad or retaliate when you wake up.

    That standard of measurement poses a dilemna for a Viking-at-heart such as myself. I brew mead (like the Vikings of old) and I like to drink that mead out of the skulls of our male victims after we rob and kill them (we don't do that to the females; we just rape them ;) ).

    So, how do I compare the size of a human skull to the size of a human head? :confused: I think that's some kind of paradox.

    They don't use silverware since it was not available in the medieval era, but they have pepsi?

    What I really don't understand is, you say that you shouldn't drink anything bigger then your head and then compare the glass to quarter... Is your head same size a quarter?

    i went to a thing like that in Majorca when i was little

    it was good fun

    jeez my dad got sooo blootered on the jugs of red wine they were passing around

  15. When very drunk:

    -no dairy
    -no Facebook. It might seem like a good idea at the time, but it's not.

    I said the glass was not as big as my head. My head is slightly larger.

    I thought the standard "see how big/small this is" was to put it next to a quarter? That's why I always bring quarters with me on dates.

    I remember the scene from the "Cable Guy" where they went there. I never thought it was a real place.

    So what kind of food do they serve? Is it just like the way it is depicted in the movie?

    As far as drunken rules, back when I was drinking heavily we used to have a rule that we only drink cheap beer after everyone is drunk.

  19. Never drink a 12 pack of st. polly girls and eat nearly an entire bag of hershey kisses for dinner.

    I don't remember anything from Cable Guy but they give you soup that you drink, then garlic bread, then a big 1/2 a chicken and a rib and a potato. It's really good food and you have to eat with your hands.

    It's quite Disneyland, everything is decorated to look like a castle--it IS a castle--and the people who work there try to speak in English accents but remember they're getting paid like $8 an hour so you're getting that type of service and that caliber of acting. BUT if you look beyond the hokey acting and get a really large drink you're all good to go! The horse tricks and the jousting is pretty cool!
