People Shared Things They Do Better When They’re Drunk And Some Of These Will Sound Very Familiar

We all know people, hell, some of us are those people, who when we drink we think that we suddenly develop some sort of magical superpower. You know what I mean. Have a few pops and suddenly someone (you) thinks that you can do anything. You’re goddamn invincible, baby!

Well, as it turns out, apparently when some people drink they DO actually have a few things that they are better at than when they are sober.

At least that’s if you believe the answers to the question posed by Redditor AHurriedDog, “What thing are you better at when you’re drunk?

Here are just a few of the heroic* acts that have been fueled by alcohol…

(*Not heroic at all. Well, maybe a couple.)

Hearing the same fucking story for the 6th time without piledriving my friends through a table. ~ kirolm

There is a point, picture it like on the the tip of a mountain, that I reach when buzzed when I am fucking brilliant. I am creative and articulate and a wonderful listener. I come up with lyrics, and little stories that are brilliant. As soon as I say them I forget them.

But it doesn’t last because I pour another and I slide down the mountain. ~ Bodymindisoneword

I discovered I was a great programmer drunk my junior year. I came home from the bar late Thurs night/Fri morning only to realize I had programming homework I forgot I had, due at 8am. When I got it back the following week I had an A on it. Previous assignments, I was consistently getting C’s. Did most of my big programming projects with a pack of beer after that. ~ Vew

I’m best at pool after three drinks.

0 drinks=terrible
1 drink=slightly less terrible
2 drinks=hey, I’m getting better at this
3 drinks=maybe I should start putting money on this game
4 drinks=I’m getting worse at this
5 drinks=now I think I’m a good dancer! ~ Internet_Validation

Beer pong. Somehow the alcohol improves my balance and coordination when it comes to playing beer pong. ~ OberynnMartell

About ten years ago I was shitfaced at a bowling alley and rolled 3 games in the mid 200’s. I was approached afterwards by another drunk guy and asked if I would join his team for league nights. I figured ‘why the hell not?’

League night rolls around and I show up sober. Can’t remember what that guy looks like because I was too drunk. Out if nowhere I’m approached by a guy flashing gang signs. Or so I thought… It was him. The guy that wanted me to bowl on his team. He was deaf. The whole team was deaf. Apparently I was slurring so bad during our previous encounter that he thought I was deaf too.

So there’s me. Sober and definitely NOT deaf. Proceeded to bowl in the 80-90 range while a very confused team looked on. I finished my 3 games, packed my shit, and never returned to that bowling alley. ~ i_am_lukes_father

Languages. Three beers, and I’m suddenly fluent in French. ~ GrumpyOldVaper

Jumping off balconies when I hear $20 even though the money nor the dare was intended for me. Bastard never paid me my money either. Had a nice nice life reflection on the ground after the jump though. ~ DJSwindleDeez

Socializing. But only to a degree. Past of certain point of drunkenness I misread social signals and just do stupid shit. ~ beccaonice

Apparently when I’m drunk I can make really witty or insightful comments. My roommates are mystified by this. One minute im on the verge of black out drunk, the next I chime in a conversation they had no idea I was listening to, say something profound then I’m out again like it never happened. ~ marie81688

Unassisted speed run of Super Mario World. I’ve done it in 22 minutes drunk, a feat which I can’t replicate sober. ~ wnp

Cooking. Instead of following recipes to the letter, I start getting a bit loose with my seasonings, spices etc. 1 1/2 tsp crushed garlic? slops some amount in close enough.

Then I start getting creative, throwing in a bit of this and that. Allspice? Shit why not. The result is almost always a delicious meal* that I always struggle to make again, at least not as good as it was the first time.

*Alcohol has been known to alter perception of taste. ~ Josecholas

The Carlton dance. ~ SixInchesAtATime

Sex. I am ten times more confident and kick ass. Downside? I turn into a lesbian when I am drunk so I am good at sex but good at sex with girls.

Odd thing is that when I am sober I am only into men. ~ 123456_789

Texting my exes I love them at 3 in the morning. ~ Taftical

I think we’re ALL better at that one when we’re drunk.
