Some drink because of too much, others because of too little.

For example Jackie Chan performing drunken fist in the movie The Forbidden Kingdom. The art of remaining agile with the (s)word even when being intoxicated.

Tavares said she composed this tune after observing people in Africa who would dance and drink, and try to maintain their balance, which the video suggests.

I think it's probably the same mindset of maintaining presence as the Zen archer finding the target while standing on a wet log over a thousand foot gorge in a heavy wind. That is, find the pleasure in refraining from sloppiness, but if you do get sloppy, work it to your advantage.

I think I may be a famous drunk. How can I tell? I guess I have to drink more to find out. In the process, I'll probably get a lot more famous, too. And I can throw a baseball 90 mph.
I live in a tub.
