I chose to be edge not to follow a trend but to be my own person. I know I dont need drugs or alcohol because I see myself in the mirror every day. Im the only proof I need to know that a self destructive behavior doesnt describe my lifestyle. Im proud to be clean and where I am today. Ive gone through some shiat and Ive dealt with all the addictions and suicide. I control my own life now- Im happy because of what I have and who I am. Life's too farking short to spend it wasted and farked up. Im straight edge because I want to live my life.

I know being edge was the right choice because it's what is in my heart. Im proud to be drug free and strong and where I am today. I have no doubt what so ever that I will stay edge for the rest of my life. Tha'ts how I know it's the right choice.

6 out of 10 right. I'll give you a B for the attempt and a C- because the ones that were supposed to be funny were a fail or cliche.

The list of generalizations about Corporate Beer Drinkers would be longer than the average attention span of the Corporate Beer Drinker, and most craft beer drinkers are also readers who already know the traits. So I'll skip it and get to work so I can earn more money to spend on overpriced, exotic, white whale craft beers.

My brew of choice around the house during summer grilling weather. If you can find it where you are, give it a try. When traveling in the UK/RoI... Guinness on tap is a must - It's absolutely awful in all its other forms.

I guess I wasn't sufficiently clear.

I was preemptively posting that copy pasta so that the usual troll wouldn't get the bites.

Probably a wasted effort anyway, considering people already bite on someone whose name is a huge flashing red light that says "I'm posting something just to piss you off!"

Alot of my friends have jumped on the IPA bandwagon. It's just too hoppy for me. I prefer New Castle Brown for everyday beer drinking and cooking. Haters gonna hate but it's good to me. And when peolpe say they hate beer in green bottles does Grolsch count? I likes me some Grolsch too.

Hey, when I was drinking, I loved me a flavorful and awesome micro, or chimay was amazing, especially for the price of a 40 of it.
But honestly the bud lights of the beer world were great too. Cheap to get wasted on if that was the goal, easy to drink all day due to low taste and hops and sulfides, and frankly less of a hangover. Plus cheap. Not like I was going to buy a 30 pack of chimay for a Friday night.

beer turns to sugar in my system and makes me piss a gallon every 5 minutes. it is no fun. It tastes like shiat and there are far better, easier ways to get drunk, if that is what you are after.

what is so goddamn great about beer, anyways? I have drank quite a bit in my younger days, tried all sorts of different brands. as far as taste, Heineken is one of the least offensive. it doesn't not go with pizza, for instance.

There's a reason beer labels have no nutrition information beyond the calories (if that). Federal law prohibits it, too many good things in beer. Like being the only non-animal source of B12.

1. 1channel.ch FTW
2. I prefer my 501 shrink-to-fit Levi's (not skinny). Also, my bike has gears. It is retro style though.
3. Thinkpad. And I'm an industrial designer (inconceivable combination, I know). I did watch Escaflowne recently... does that count?
4. Don't have the setup, but I'd like to.
5. Please. Be seen supporting an evil corporation like Starshucks? (Prefer local. Starbucks is fine.)
6. I totally do. B cup on a thin girl is my ultimate weakness. Dated A to DD. B cup all the way.
7. On the rare occasions I'm at Walmart, I remind myself how blessed I am, and remember that I could be just like the stereotypes had I made different decisions in my life.
8. Both roommates smoke. They keep it outside where it should be. 5 seconds walking by won't kill anyone.
10. For the love of all that is terrible for you but smothered in BBQy deliciousness - when is the McRib coming back?!

Thank you for the bait. I'm also going to hang on to your hook if you don't mind.

Beer has far too many nutritional and beneficial qualities, the federal government does not want to allow citizens to think beer might be a good thing to consume; they need to baby the american public with disinformation. Otherwise people will go crazy and become rampaging alcoholics and drink 4000000 beers a day. Just like they do with vitamins.

Uh, what? I've never, ever, heard Heineken described as 'least offensive'. It has a strong, severe, taste of sulphur-components. If you don't like beer, that's fine, I never liked wine or saki.
