No, not this one, the deleted post I linked to. We'll barter your post to the fire-mountain gods for the one they took away.

You wouldn't happen to be a virgin, would you? It'd be nice if you were virgin and female or something but if not, whatever, we'll wing it.

I've seen most of these before but they're pretty funny. I'd like a video of the guys waking up and realizing they've been messed with. Especially the guy on the couch perched above the ground.

In my experience, they tend to do the bull-in-a-chinashop routine and charge around looking for someone to bash. Or they're so hungover they curl back up into a fetal position for another six hours.

How charming.

During my freshman year of college a fellow student I knew in passing died after a party. His "brothers" played a few drunken pranks on his unconscious body and then left him alone. There were more drinks to be had and more girls to make out with.

He died shortly thereafter. Choked on his own vomit.

Drinking to such bizarre excess is unfathomable to me. "Friends" who take the opportunity to stuff one into a small pet cage make me ill.

If someone is drunk to the point unconsciousness, call an ambulance or a cab and get them to the hospital.

And don't go to hard on progosk (of the "random post before this one"). Dude (or dudette) posts tons of shit on videos.antville.org, one of my favorite sites (although most of the commenters on there are complete assholes.)

Yeah, the hospitals will be really effective at treating patients if every passed out college kid in town is wheeled in every Friday and Saturday night.

Good god no. If anything turned me off've working in an ER it was all the stories of shifts spent doing nothing but talking down obnoxious drunks!

He died shortly thereafter. Choked on his own vomit.

Name any activity, ever, and I can guarantee you someone will have died doing it. If references to people getting drunk and passing out upset you so much stay away from them instead of trying to spoil the thread.

Turtles all the way down, um no, I have a friend who's an ER nurse and they deal with drunks all the time, they are rude, smelly, difficult and occasionally puke on her. Its not fun, it makes her job much more difficult than it has to be.

Drunk people are rarely entertaining to anyone other than other drunk people.

"Drunk people are rarely entertaining to anyone other than other drunk people."

Well, sometimes they're rather amusing to EMS personnel. One fine evening at an event in San Francisco we came across an unconscious drunk that didn't respond to painful stimuli, but he did respond to us taking his stunna shades off.

It's when they get violent that it's no longer amusing. This guy was anything but violent.

Silentgoldfish, in the spirit of the post, I believe that aladfar was commenting on the grossness of people having pranked someone who turned out to be fatally poisoned, not on someone's having gotten drunk and unconscious to begin with. Not that your comment wasn't really charming and worthwhile on its own merits.
posted by hermitosis at 11:10 AM on November 5, 2006


fenriq and Silentgoldfish: I take your point. But what I meant was this: having spent many nights in the ER during medical training my recollection was that 50% of the patients were drunk anyway. They were smelly, uncooperative, and might well have vomited on you. In contrast, a young well groomed college kid that had merely drunk too much that night and been lovingly 'decorated' by his buddies would have been welcome comic relief.

//been in the trenches: remember derelicts coming in who, when the nursing staff removed their outer shirt(s), had hair growing through their undershirt because it hadn't been changed in several months. Now that is a very icky sight!

Actually the site's eerily similar to the video! One has to wonder if one didn't inspire the other.

Anyone who's ever been the DD at a party knows that...

I met up with my best friend once and I happened to be driving. At the end of the night I had to tell him "you know, you can be a bit of an asshole when you're drunk..." Fortunately he thought that was hugely funny.

It's all fun and games until the Boston Police Department gets involved:

On arrival, officers located a teenage male in a semiconscious state, who was marked with disturbing graffiti written on his body. ...

A thorough and exhaustive investigation conducted by Boston Police Sexual Assault, Community Disorders and District detectives determined that the teen was a victim of a ‘prank’. An interview with the teen revealed that he became intoxicated while drinking alcohol with a group of individuals known to him. The victim stated that before passing out, he witnessed his so-called "friends" writing on him, but was too intoxicated to do anything about it.

They were alright, except they seemed to be 12 examples of one sign you drank too much ("you wake up in an embarrasing or compromising position"). Also, the one where the couch is perched above the ground is badly photoshopped.

This just reminds me why I never drank with asshole frat boys in college.

Getting passing-out drunk with your friends should be about raising hell with people that you like and trust. Friends don't do shit like this to each other. I'll bet most of the people in these photos were on the periphery of the social group, trying anxiously to fit in and getting rewarded with cocks drawn on their chins in Sharpie.

From what I saw of frat-boys at my uni, it was generally the generally well liked middle that had the most of this kind of prank played on them. Not the peasantry, and not the nobility, but the middle-class, as it were.

I have been very near several American fraternities, though I tried to avoid them. At a Big 10 university that can be hard to do.

These people have poisoned themselves. Their friends, too drunk to care, have abused them while unconscious. It's a disgusting thing to see. That it's accepted and championed by the cool kids is worse.

If references to people getting drunk and passing out upset you so much stay away from them instead of trying to spoil the thread.

Have I spoiled the thread? Forgive me. Next time I'll provide better reading material for you by pointing out how funny it is to see a guy with a smiley face shaved into his ass. ROFLMAO!!!
