On July 3, 2008, my best friend (and ultimately savior of my soul) Kim and I embarked on a mission to attempt what must be the dumbest thing either of us has ever thought of:
We went to Europe and tried to drink 1000 beers.
I mean, what do you even say to that? Two guys wanted to drink 1000 beers in just less than a month, in countries they knew nothing about (except for Scotland because Kim is kinda English so he sorta knew some stuff there), on teachers’ budgets.
We did a ton of dumb shit. Like, for example, trying to drink 1000 beers. That was extremely stupid.
And we got hurt in the process. In fact, we went to the ER 3 times between the two of us.
Side note: We went to the ER 3 times in 30 days and paid a total of $0, AND THEY KNEW WE WEREN’T CITIZENS OF SCOTLAND. In December 2014 I paid nearly $5,000 for a healthy baby to be delivered here in Washington after I had already paid about $12,000 in insurance premiums that year. Go figure.
But we did some fun stuff too. We didn’t just get hurt trying to hop fences to sneak into private techno parties.
