secret? or maybe an excuse to drink. productivity probably is not any better. just like drunk people say they can drive and are better drivers. I don't think so.

#29 opinions are like a**holes, everybody's got one.

Alcohol is a stimulant, then a depressant as the effects sink in. So a heightened sense of awareness, increased productivity, and better driving skills are more than possible at first. Not saying go out and drive drunk to test the theory, I am saying I wish everyone would make more effort to base their opinions on facts.

never said I was basing anything on opinion. I was actually basing it on experience. I don't know anyone who is productive while drinking, whether just starting, or drinking all night. and those who decide to do something "productive" usually fuck up what they're trying to do. I don't drink so this isn't about me, just people I've come across in my life.

#29 In all actuality, my father WAS a much better driver while drinking. It was after he had been sober for three years that he got his license revoked for reckless driving. Yet for the countless years he drank and drove he never got so much as one speeding ticket. ? And that's the only positive opinion I have in regards to alcohol.

Actually depending on what he does, it might be true. Studies show that if you're engaged in creative work (such as design, but less obviously stuff like programming), getting a "buzz" will legitimately increase your productivity by up to 30%. There's a reason why so many of the great artists were alcoholics. Of course that's not an excuse to get blackout drunk- your creative ideas are of no use to anyone if you don't have the coordination to draw them.
Plus alcohol is actually excellent brain fuel (second only to glucose), so if you need to do a lot of thinking and don't have access to sweets, a small amount of liquor will do anyone more good than harm.
But, yeah, you should look over your drunk work the next day. You know, just in case.
