Antifreeze is quite overrated as a beverage in my humble opinion.  Just sayin'...

Can't comment on antifreeze, I'm afraid, but when I drink this sums up what then proceeds to occur pretty well:

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

At first I thought he quite possibly WAS drunk during the performance...  Then I realized, "Nope, not drunk...  Irish!" and I was overcome with a strange sense of patriotism...

I don't know, he could be drunk.  Certainly his character in Black Books is rarely seen without a glass of some delicious alcoholic beverage in his hand.

Oh it's snowing!  Who wants to go outside with a sledge?  Drunken sledge racing does sound terribly good fun, what?

Oh! Yes! And the alcohol in the system would allow one to stay wonderfully relaxed and detached during any accident, which is far better for the possible damage during said incident.

A capitol idea!

(confused Yankee tree dweller look) ... A Sledge is a sled, yes?

That said, I've got a fairly large hill with plenty a tree to run into.  Each collision deserves a shot of brandy, or ale, or rum, or all.  Mind the rocks though, the snow is deep, but soft enough to rack yourself up good ... requiring extra alcohol, for medicinal purposes of course.

Perhaps, after a few dozen rounds, we'll tie onto the truck and play snap the whip, eh?!

Down here in the south we usually call 'em "Chevy Blazer Hoods."  Then there's them people from up yonder, they call 'em "toboggans," which, as everyone with a lick of sense knows, is that hat 'cha wear on yer head when it's cold out.

And I think my IQ dropped typing the above...

This caused a bit of a storm in the UK last year:

Police go Sledging on riot shields (funny)


Lots of whingeing about them dicking about on taxpayer's money, inappropriate use of equipment and all. I say sod it... It's a bit of fun. Makes the police seem a little more approachable, at least and to be fair, Who wouldn't have done that??!

Well then ... that explains why there are not any chevy trucks with hoods 'round here!  I knew that there was some kind of use for a chevy!   
I find the 'hood sled' a bit hard to steer when under the influence of thawing liquids.

The hill has been groomed and is ready to go ... who's got the refreshments so we can get these races started Grin

Hmmm this seems to be the place if any to ask my question. How many of you here are amateur Mixologists and for those that are would any one like to swap various concoctions they have dreamed up? I myself love to mix drinks and see what I can come up with. Though being one’s own test subject can be rather dangerous if you are working on more than one drink. Several times I have woken up on my kitchen floor wondering what the heck the last drink I made was and if it had tasted alright, then again some of them are strong enough that taste doesn’t really matter......

Aha!

I work at a nightclub. I'm a technician there, tinkering with lighting consoles and mixing desks, but one tradition that we have at the club is the "dirty pint". For Birthday people, virgins (first-timers to the club) and other special occasions, we mix up a pitcher of some particular brew and make them drink some.

More often than not, these drinks tend to congeal into some kind of cake-like slurry. Whatever goes into it varies from week to week (depending mostly on the popularity of the recipient in my own opinion. Yes, I'm a bit of a git). For instance, last week's bucket comprised 1 pint of foster's, 1 pint of guinness, 1 bottle of J20, 1 bottle of spiced tomato juice, 2 cans of "Nutrition" shake, some SMA baby formula and a little bit of Smash instant mashed potato, and 1\4 cup of instant coffee. It smelled pretty foul and didn't pour too well.

However, sometimes, I've made some that have come out absolutely gorgeous, entirely by accident. My favourite for a refreshing drink in the hot weather:

1/2pt cider. 1/2pt Cola, Dash of lime cordial. It's not a s dry as cider and not as sickeningly syrupy as cola, and tastes just like bruised apples. Quite lovely.
