I’m afraid there aren’t enough people on this forum willing to get drunk or stoned for the sake of Science to make this experiment work.


Hello Antisocialdarwinist,

I’ve changed my mind about participating in your science project though the discussions would be fun to read I’m sure. Apologies to you for signing on and I hope you get some willing participants.  I’d had a few michelobs left over from the fourth and was drinking them when I signed up.  Preferable for me would be drinking fresh coffee and reading a well thought out discussion, especially on your number five selection. 

I’d like to believe moral judgements can be objective, that there are actual moral truths,  but I’m inclined to go with morality as a subjective belief.  More that morality varies depending on the time in history, place and culture especially when pertaining to religious belief.  What might shock us morally would be quite acceptable for another culture, and vice versa.  I would not be able to make a cogent argument either way,  especially after drinking,  yet someone else might have some persuasive thoughts.

That’s what I was thinking as I recalled an episode of WKRP in Cincinnati called “Fish Story” where Dr. Johnny Fever and Venus Flytrap become intoxicated while participating in a “Drinking and Response Time” experiment on the air.  Venus got hammered and Johnny’s reaction time only improved with the consumption of alcohol, ha ha.  Much to the dismay of the state trooper.

Not sure if I’m sober on any of our podcasts. So my job is done…

So… when the bell rings, one guys starts drinking like a fish and another guy fills the air with reefer madness. And then we pick a subject and see what happens and make it a podcast.

So far, you are correct. Do you mean we acknowledge that this is happening?

Seriously, if you can flesh this out and whip up some teams, we’ll make it happen.

We need a topic where there’s sufficient disagreement without a hard stalemate. I suggest the nature of belief dependent reality and why social systems should be considered objective factors. I think the medium is important because cross talk could ruin it especially if there’s also tech interference. I think that there should also be a solid moderator who’s either slightly buzzed and high or neither. One interlude or halftime would probably help. I think everyone knows which team I’m on. Teams of 3 or 4 sound solid but again we’ll need to unpack how the diologue would flow a little. I think.

No offense taken probably because I don’t know what a knob jockey is and also probably because I am one. You should get drunk and put your money where your mouth is. Haha

I attended a “Safety Meeting” earlier this evening, so I’m all saddled up…

It all depends on the speaker. Some safety meeting messages’ are quite different than others.
