Comments on: Denver, you have a drinking problem. http://www.historiann.com/2013/11/03/denver-you-have-a-drinking-problem/ History and sexual politics, 1492 to the present Sat, 20 Sep 2014 01:22:40 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.9.2 By: P http://www.historiann.com/2013/11/03/denver-you-have-a-drinking-problem/comment-page-1/#comment-1913238 Mon, 27 Jan 2014 05:46:07 +0000 http://www.historiann.com/?p=21981#comment-1913238 I used to go downtown all the time and always noticed the drunkenness on the streets say after 9 P.M. I finally had enough when my daughter and I could not get tickets into a rockies game. We went to have lunch and watch it on a big screen in one of the bars. People were getting totally loaded before the game. A couple of hours later we were leaving and saw literally hundreds of people pouring out of the stadium, several innings before the game ended. They all were heading back into bars to drink. We were so upset because ewe would have loved to see the game. It used to be people actually went to see the sport, now apparently they just go to get drunk.

At a Nuggets game my son and I attended, several guys behind us had to be escorted out for drunkenness.

I do know from my professional background that Denver has one of the highest incest rates in the world and a lot of covert pedophilia and cult activity. Domestic abuse is also very high. Maybe everyone is drinking to forget.

It is so disgusting to see a crowd of drunken adults acting like idiots. I avoid downtown at night.

Finally, there’s a lot of money to be made from an inebriated population. Public policy is very pro bars and drinking.

(And Blackwater types, of course, when they existed.) I am from California, so not from here, and I was warned, but I had to see it to believe it. People will drink until they drop and that is normal, not exceptional.

Biomedical conferences are pretty fucken drunken.

What is the response of non-Ethiopians to this recent trial?

I had had a drink, but was not drunk, and couldn’t figure out what I might have eaten to cause that reaction. When it happened a second time a few months later at a different restaurant, I worried about what was going on – but never did figure out what caused those two episodes and as they weren’t repeated, I stopped worrying. I wasn’t drunk or sick either time. However, the second time as I exited the stall, my friend who was dining with us also appeared in the small restroom – she never said anything to me, but I did wonder if she thought I was binging and purging – it wasn’t that either!!
So, I do think there might be many reasons for semi-public vomiting other than being drunk.

Don’t go out! (How hard is that, unless you have a drinking problem?)
