Does this infer that I'm a Scot?

Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut. ~Ernest Hemingway

I've had a life-long interest in the great man and his writing and can report that the answer to this is - not very often.

Hemingway would rise early and do his literary work for about 4 hours before he allowed himself a drink - about mid-morning. One biographer (the unfortunate son who became a Dr) says he had the equivalent of 2 bottles of whisky/day for 20 years.

Is he the hero of Christopher Hitchins? (Should Hitchins allow himself heros). There appear to be some similarities here!

Please define "topic." Isn't the topic what is being discussed? Or is this incorrect?

He already does! He threw his coffee over my trousers the other day. I had wet knickers for the rest of the day! Still the crabs had a swimming pool!

I have heard that you can get rid of crabs by pouring a low quality scotch over them, give them time to get drunk, then sprinkle the area with sand and watch them stone each other to death.
