My Eighth Favorite (Not So Much) YouTube Video for 2009

This video is called "Drunkest Guy Ever." At first you laugh at this video, but the more I watch it, the more it bothers me. Kids in high school would think this was hilarious. They think it's great entertainment when their friends do this at parties, some of them every weekend or more often.

Unfortunately, drinking can be a serious problem. With New Year's Eve fast approaching, children need to be taught the dangers of drinking too much. It's not something that should be amusing. Some of those dangers include:
Alcohol Poisoning
Rape and Sexual Assault
Mistreatment of Children
Liver Disease
Brain Damage
Cancer Risk
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Diabetes Complications
High Blood Pressure
Unintentional Injuries (crashes, falls, drowning, burns, firearm injuries)
Alcohol affects every organ of the body

So when you see this video, remember that this man needs help. He is hurting himself, his family, and his friends. I'm guessing that being the "Drunkest Guy Ever" was not his life goal. It was probably not what his parents envisioned for him when he was born.

Learn to drink responsibly or don't drink at all. Stay safe and have a Happy New Year!
