So, how about you!            :beer1;    :oops;
Babbler seemed to be huffing and puffing away, when he asked me “this is crazy stuff, why do you even do it at all? I inquired as to what he was referring to. ‘This standing on one leg while holding the other leg up in the air’, was Babblers come back. ‘Well’ I replied, ‘has to do with an article I had read a while back, where a reporter tried a sobriety test, in a police department, using the same process that the police use to nail drunken drivers’. ‘So what happened’ asks Babbler. ‘ Best I can recall, is that the reporter, with police cooperation, had the desk bound officers “take” the sobriety test to see what would happen. Seems that most of those officers following the directions, of the officer directing the “test” FAILED those tests, even though all were sober. So I tried what was listed as the test given to those officers, and I flunked it, much to my surprise.

The story and details at:

Did I pass the field sobriety test?

 A: Field Sobriety Tests (FSTs) are not really “tests” in the way we usually think of “tests.” The real goal of FSTs is not really meant to determine whether you are drunk or not—it is to make you appear drunk. It might surprise you that most people, sober or otherwise, “fail” these tests. Whether you pass or fail is based totally on the officer’s personal observations and impressions. Remember, these tests are entirely subjective—they do not conclusively determine whether you are drunk or not. Also keep in mind that the officer asked you to take field sobriety tests—which, as you remember, are designed to make you fail—because he suspects that you were driving while intoxicated. He is going to be looking for evidence that you broke the law, not alternative explanations for your behavior

Hey, hey, I'll drink to that!  :wine; Oops..I flunked. As for those balancing workouts, those are a lot tougher than I thought. While I am no good at squats, I am good at squat! And of course, when I saw it was written by Juan Carlos Santana, who was I thinking of? Santana, of course!   :guitar:  Oops...wrong industry but dancing is good exercise too!

 :waiting; Go figure...
I was once called up for Jury Selection on a Drunk Driving case. Teed off a judge when I was asked if I drank and drive and my reply was, "What? At the same time??". That stupid comment did not get me dismissed from jury duty.
