You get a different effect from different forms of spirits though, so it can't be just the alcohol that does it. Tequila is much trippier than whisky for example, and aniseed based drinks like ouzo are wild.  

There's no actual proof of that though, just a lot of anecdotal evidence. However, people do drink different types of alcohol in different situations, and that plus the placebo-esque effect of preconceived expectations account for the reported effect.

There are no mind-altering substances in juniper berries, agave or aniseed.

I can’t really be arsed following my football team these days ..

Ps not in a dummy spitting way , just proper apathy I couldn’t name most of the squad or their positions this season

Clachnacuddin have put big pictures of the squad with their sponsors on a wall between the gate and the pie shop, unfortunately without their shirt numbers, but it helps. Otherwise they still aren't giving out team sheets, so I wouldn't have a clue, loads of changes since Covid started.

Saw an ad on TV last night for Ocado, purportedly extolling the virtues of their awesome fresh food which you can order online and have conveyed to your door for convenience by one of their smiley happy drivers.
The final frame of ad contains bits of 'small print', part of which reads 'Delivery Excludes Scotland'.
Don't quite get why a company want to advertise in Scotland but then tell Scotland that 'we don' t want your custom'.
F*ck Ocado.

It usually takes me 6 months to work out who's playing for Edinburgh City, by which time they've usually been released.

Did you leave a cock drawing at reception?

No, you leave them hidden about the room for the next guest, preferably between the pages of the Gideon Bible.

Always worth leaving a few notes around in the kettle or shower to say, "hi, I didn't piss here, but I could have and housekeeping obviously didn't clean it".

Did her family turn up to clap and cheer outside the door in anticipation of you successfully inseminating her for a third time?

A gentleman never tells.

Gin is tremendous fair. A good old proper normal gin none of the flavoured shite. Martin Millers or the like, touch of tonic, bit of ice and a slice. The wife makes a cracking gin tbf.

Mullarkey. Very much the Queen Mother figure of P&B.

That's one of the few things the Royal family get right.

The Queen Maw used to get shitfaced on gin and dubonnet every day, and Liz herself has a 1 part gin to 2 parts dubonnet cocktail every lunchtime.

Prince Phillip would always take the back roads home after a lunchtime drink as “there’s less police about . “

I can vouch for that.

Na, regardless of your views on marriage as a whole, Weddings are fucking class. One of the best days of my life if not the best, not because of bullshit romantic reasons, but because almost everyone I care about was in the same room, for us. Brilliant. I dont think iv been to a badabd wedding tbf

Can confirm this. No issue with the concept of marriage as a whole but always viewed a wedding itself as something likely to be a whole load of hassle, mostly for other people's benefit that you couldn't properly relax and enjoy for worrying. We'd seriously discussed doing it as just the two of us.

Saturday has shown me that's a load of cynical bollocks, I had an incredible day and wouldn't have changed a thing about it.
