About two months ago, I saw Charles do a "questionable" U-turn right in front of me on Peachtree Street, here in Atlanta.

I didn't suspect that he was drunk, but hey, who ever really knows?

Yah sometimes you can't even tell if someone is drunk or not - unless you've had your fair share, I guess you can tell easily if they're just a bit buzzed. :rolleyes:

Ah well...good for him? lol

I say this every time a celebrity gets a DUI:

You can AFFORD a driver. If I can afford to pay for a cab on a night when I want to get drunk, then you can afford to pay someone to drive you to and from your selected drinking establishment.

I don't get it. I really don't. If I could get trashed and have someone drive me home, I would. Why don't rich people understand this?

Jerry Buss, I'm looking in your direction.....

It's a fine line.

Usually if you're too drunk to drive, you know you can't.

However some people get too drunk to realize that they are too drunk to drive.

BadScooter is giving good advice.

It shouldn't be about "where to draw the line". But rather, if you are going to drink, arrange for a non-drinking driver. It can't be that hard.

a lot of people start drinking with the intention of driving home, whether they only intend to have a few drinks, or hanging out long enough to sober up their intentions are usually good. there really is a fine line between being able to drive safely and not...the difference between one more shot, or one more beer. the problem is that 9 times out of 10, people on that borderline who have experience drinking will believe they're fine and go ahead...

reminds me of this family guy moment...

If Barkley ever does become the governor of Alabama, first thing he'll do is run people over in front of the capital... :dance1:

The cops stopped Barkley after he allegedly ran a stop sign. According to the officer who wrote the report, "He told me that he ran the stop sign because he was in a hurry to pick up the girl I saw get in the passenger seat."

The officer continues: "He asked me to admit that she was 'hot.' He asked me, 'You want the truth?' When I told him I did he said, 'I was gonna drive around the corner and get a blow job. He then explained that she had given him a 'b**w job' one week earlier and said it was the best one he had ever had in his life."


:lol:

Too bad the NBA didn't have any games scheduled for today. Ridiculous. I don't care about football being dominant, at least have something for your fans.
