Today, I held a house party. For fun, I made sure all the beer was alcohol-free, so I could see which of my friends would be weak-minded enough to end up acting drunk. Three did. I was one of them. FML

1. You had a non-alcoholic house party in Germany. 2. You fell for your own set up. How do you NOT deserve it?!


And to think I have been buying alcoholic drinks like a sucker all this time when my mind could just make it alcoholic for me!!!

I don't understand why you were thumbs down

If I was at that party I would honestly be pissed...I mean maybe fool everyone at first but then c'mon you have to bring out the real stuff!

Lacist it's not much of a placebo effect if he knew it was non alcoholic!

I say it still works sometimes, he could have forgot. It's like knowing the bracelet is just plastic or the pill just has sugar, for some reason you trick yourself.

If you knew it was non alcoholic how do you think you're drunk?

I didn't even know they sold nonalcoholic beer in Germany. Plus, buying that shit is like kissing your sister.

Who has an adult party without alcoholic drinks? I sure don't.

#8 perfect comment and picture combination And 74 don't forget pregnant ladies that still just need their fix

OP you threw a 'house party' without drinks. Thats pretty much an oxymoron, and its very stupid, lame and weird thing to do. What the hell did all the people do all night? Must have been awkward as ****. Did you lose friends?

Ok, I'm really confused. Either all of you are winning an award for best actress/actor or someone spiked the drinks. Not enough info in this fml but hope the party was fun.

Sounds like it was just one big idiot fest.

I cannot argue with you on such a valid point.

I'm sure they were feelin' so fly like a G6 Hell Yeah Drink it up, drink-drink it up, When sober girls around me, they be actin' like they drunk"

Guys it's called the placebo effect, u trick or give something to someone who thinks that it will have an affect on them. The mind does the rest, believing the problem was solved eg some pain can be cured by placebo, also this situation is a great example Got some biomedical uses, they usually give placebo injection to one group of mice (usually just a saline solution) and the potential cure to another group, they then record the results to def if the vaccine/medicine is effective

^But OP *knew* it was non-alcoholic... Therefore he couldn't have tricked himself.

Obviously OP forgot. It's not that bizarre, especially if it was a longer night (more likely to forget as party goes on) or something that OP does regularly (easier to slip into a familiar routine). So yes, still placebo effect.

Placebo doesn't work on mice, though. You can't tell them "this is medicine" when it's not, hence, no placebo effect.

OP, I'm guessing you're not the brightest crayon in the box ...

Nor the sharpest tool in the shed!

Nor the drunkest not drunk person! Oh wait...

Umm... how...? And why would you do that in the first place!?

Seriously, like how does this even happen?! I don't think I could trick my own mind like that.

Elena and olpally sittin' in a tree....

Maybe FML is a dating site after all ...nah

I can see the other 2 people were under the placebo effect, but no OP since he knew.

my eyes tricked me and i saw mormon instead of moron

*waves hand* These beers are alcoholic.

You've held on to it for that long? Shame on you. I lost my faith in humanity years ago!

I hate this phrase so much.. It's way overused and complete bullshit. If everyone thought this way, then absolutely nothing would get done in this world. Not trying to pick on anyone, I just hate that god damn phrase with a passion.

Now how in the world did you trick YOURSELF, OP?
