    Re: The Random Thought Thread

    Judaism has drinking. The Passover seder uses it - it's the one time a year I was allowed to drink as a kid.

    Cider ?

    I feel a bit lost as I don't know what to drink when out. Not a big fan of beer, and wine, my fave and cheapest going-out booze is mostly a no-no cuz it contains a damn fish most of the time. Ugh. also dont wanna get smashed drinking vodkas all nigt or whatever.

    Just like in Bosnia...in the village my father grew up, the biggest drinkers were Muslims

    I'll have a glass of red wine every now and then and that's it. Never enjoyed the taste of alcohol.

    Ahem priests drink wine, the blood of Christ, during the eucharist.

    That's not accurate Serby... Christianity does allow drinking... they give it to us in the holy communion actually lol (unless you are a sinner in which case you are not allowed to have the church alcohol)

    As most people in Turkey don't drink, I wonder when do you drink? On your own?
    Actually people drink a lot in Turkey, just because the government is oppressive doesn't mean people don't drink. We pay the highest taxes in the world for alcohol/spirits. My hometown Izmir is the third biggest but most modern city in Turkey. Alcohol is consumed a lot in the Western and Southern coasts of Turkey.
    I thought most people in Turkey were muslims. At least the people who live here (and come from Turkey) always say they are not allowed to drink because of their religion.

    I thought I was the only one. I only drink alcohol twice a year on very special occasions.

    Turns out my mother's great grand-father was born in Georgia and probably had to immigrate to Turkey during Ottoman-Russia War. Too bad they stopped giving citizenship and passport based on ethnicity in 2013.

    I woke up with an earworm of Rita Oras Hello, Hi, Goodbye last night, which is super random because I deleted it immediately after giving it one listen in 2012. Brains are so weird.

    It isn't like This Is Us is melodramatic and manipulative. Those emotions arise because it is so relatable . There's a lot of heart to that show.

I watch tv for entertainment, I hate tearjerking stuff (I haven't seen Titanic since 1998 and don't see myself going back), there's enough to be depressed and upset about without some tv show tugging at your heartstrings every single week. Sure, tv shows do have those sad episodes (like a lot of Buffy season 5), but every single week an episode guaranteed to make you cry like a baby? No thanks lol.
    I think youd enjoy it personally. Sometimes its happy crying, sometimes its sad crying. But Im a pussy and cry at everything.

    The show is much more than just crying and sadness tbh.
