There happens to be one problem with this. It has been years since I've consumed alcohol for non medicinal purposes.

If I remember correctly, liquor makes me do some very stupid things, so I will pass as I don't need any outside assistance.

I'll stick to Diet Pepsi.

Then have no video cameras around. At this time, I have a positive presence on YouTube. I don't want to change that.
