Other stuff that fuels binge drinking in the West besides boredom:
- Soul-crushing employers.
- Fantasy football drafts.
- Buying in a seller’s market and selling in a buyer’s market.
- A donated garage refrigerator reserved exclusively for meat, alcohol and assorted citrus fruits that can be chopped up and put in alcohol.
- Five weeks of vacation time that needs be used up by January 1, 2007.
- Mark Husson’s sparse blog posting schedule.
- Your mom.
