Ok....I picked the HD Programming forum for this due to those of us who consume alcohol are more than likely watch HD programming while drinking. I actually try to both at the same time (only on occasion in moderation). KenH, Alan and David, please do not delete this thread as AVS has been such a great outlet for being in touch with its members. Yes, I am PWI (posting while intoxicated). I am enjoying a 1999 merlot cab blend right now.

Between cruising the AVS and watching HD, I feel the HD experience with a nice wine can go hand in hand. The two are to be savored in a multi-sensory experience. How many of us do this???? Please share your experiences....

You mean some of you cruise AVS without being on morphine? Wow, I hadn't realized that. This leaves me at a loss to explain some of what I read here :-)

I tried AVS last night while on a nice percodan & flexoril high (screwed up back) after trying to read a few posts I realized that I wasn't able to focus well enough to read and gave up. The HDTV didn't look so good either so I just stumbled to the bedroom and passed out.

I can't imagine why the warning labels say to not drive or operate machinery whaile taking these medications...

remember when tom snyder still did the late late show after letterman? he would encourage all his viewers to drink while they watched, saying, "fire up a colortini" ... perhaps if he were still on in the digital tv age his phrase of choice would be "fire up an hdtini".

drinking wine while watching hd? no way! to quote blue velvet: "f*** that s***... PABST BLUE RIBBON!"

it's an economical thing. i'm in college

"There's a... big machine in the sky... Some sort of... electric snake. It's headed right for us..."

I had no idea about Snyder. That is a good idea. I really like the "fire up an HDtini".

Any chance we can get a smile to add to the posts to indicate if we have been boozen?? There is one open space in the "smilies" box. Anyone care to offer up their version of a PWI smiley?

Kipp: I like that "boozin' smiley" idea.

I've found that the first bottle of Cab enhances your creativity and enjoyment of online posting. The second bottle makes it tougher to read think and type, but you enjoy it just the same. And the third bottle has you searching the forums the following morning in order to edit or delete the really dumb stuff you posted earlier in the morning...

Man (to WC): "You're drunk!"
WC: "Yeah, and you're crazy. And I'll be sober tomorrow and you'll be crazy for the rest of your life."

Not sure what movie, but I thought it went more like this:

"Society" woman (to WC): "Sir, you are drunk!"
WC: "And madam, you are ugly! Tomorrow I'll be sober but you'll still be ugly!"

yes, in the Winston Churchill Documentary on HBO? they did his famous quote to the "Society" woman commenting on his intoxication. Classic line... "I may be drunk, but madam, you are ugly... Tomorrow I'll be sober and you'll still be ugly."

I also thought that it was Ugly and not Crazy, but after checking some web sites which listed the quote, they both said what I posted and not the Ugly quote. Maybe it is just another case of Revisionist History and Political Correctness?

Technical advice for "Cruising the AVS Forum while intoxicated" ...

Get a universal learning remote with macros, and use discrete codes if at all possible, so you can easily navigate a potentially difficult A/V system.

Nothing is worse than hitting the wrong button and "losing HDTV while intoxicated." If this happens, do NOT under any circumstances, attempt to "rewire HDTV while intoxicated!"

... and it should go without saying that one should NEVER attempt to re-aim their roof mounted (or in my case pine-tree mounted) eliptical dish while intoxicated especially in a rainstorm (the hint should be that the rain is the likely problem).

P.S. - Do not expect TiVo functions to suddenly start working with Satellite HDTV while intoxicated!

That is a scary thought. I had a root canal today and I am on Vicodone for a while. The only problem I am having is I keep mistyping. All of the colors look really bright!

when guest are over, I usually make a point of offering a beverage before firing up the system. Maybe the dlp projector has something to do with it, but I think that a drink or two really does help pq.

wonder if it would possible to successfully develop a standard user-calibration procedure.

Great thread, Kipp and company!
I've been on planes a lot lately, sipping Johnnie Walker Black in the business sections and reading Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing series again - great reads and a wild blast from the past! This thread reminds me of HST! I too have noted my need for post-posting editing sessions after enthusiastic keyboard dancing, enlivened by either the grappa (evening) or too much java!

boozen and cruisen the Boards while intoxicated can be dangerous to your equipment. As are nurses with syringes of saline.. yep one killed my laptop last week! ( not paying attention to what she was doing... but what can ya do she didn't mean to...

And it was only a month and three days old now I'm using one of the hospitals which they loaned me because of the incident. they said to make sure I get insurance on any future laptops, saying that that computer insurance covers accidental damage. anyone know if that is true? sound to good to be true to me; especially on something like a laptop.

sorry to go so far off topic.. but cut me some slack I'm in morning over my loss..

Tony: Sorry to hear of your loss... Can you remove the hard drive and recover the data at least?

I know all about nurses with syringes of saline. 20 years ago, when my then girlfriend was in nursing school, she was told to practice injections on an orange. Still, an orange isn't exactly like injecting a real person, so I offered my arms. Several injections later, she was confident in giving her first supervisor-observed injections. She later said that my pin cushion offer was one of real love, and she got her first real inclination that I was the one for her... In the years since, now married more than 19 years, I haven't had to thankfully offer up my arms again.

Are we going to need a bouncer for those of you "Posting Under the Influence"? If you'll try to behave, I might make a rum cake for you and some special eggnog.

""""-tony



Tony, why are you in the hospital?

_____________"""

i missed this before; since thread is backup I saw it.

I have cystic fibrosis and need a lung transplant so get hospitalized often, several times a year. The nurses joking refer to one on the rooms as tony's house.... so you can see I spend too much time there.. anyway thanks for asking.

re: insurance, thanks for the suggestion.


re: topic.


So does anyone watch hd tv better, with a few in'em ...

Pardon my spelling, the checker hangs my system.

HDTV looks better with a few in me....

Good idea for the plasmas in the hospital room. Now only if insurance will cover it.

Maybe they could be tricked into thinking I needed plama; which in that case I do.

So the question is, while intoxicated and searching for this thread did you:
  1. Actually spell "intoxicated" correctly?
  2. Use "crusing" instead because it is shorter with fewer alternate spellings?
  3. Have your designated driver perform the search before s/he left?
  4. Use a previously created bookmark?
  5. Make your eight-year-old do the search telling her/im "intoxicated" means "full of love"?

.

I searched for (and spelled correctly) intoxicated. It took quite a bit of concentration to make my fingers hit the correct keys, though.

So Tony, do any of the drugs they give you for your condition affect your HD perception in any way?

Damn someone's had a few if they went in search of this thread... and commented on a 4 month old post.

Luckily my intake has been restricted to less than a six-pack tonight.

Hmmm....

Get a universal learning remote with macros, and use discrete codes if at all possible, so you can easily navigate a potentially difficult A/V system.

Nothing is worse than hitting the wrong button and "losing HDTV while intoxicated." If this happens, do NOT under any circumstances, attempt to "rewire HDTV while intoxicated!"

... and it should go without saying that one should NEVER attempt to re-aim their roof mounted (or in my case pine-tree mounted) eliptical dish while intoxicated especially in a rainstorm (the hint should be that the rain is the likely problem).

P.S. - Do not expect TiVo functions to suddenly start working with Satellite HDTV while intoxicated!

And DEFINITELY don't attempt to calibrate your front projector while intoxicated! I did that once, and the next day's viewing made me certain alcohol affects color perception!
