It's SOOO easy to ramble when sotted... I have a real problem with
rambling even when I haven't had a drink in weeks, so you know it's
gotta be bad after a cuppa.

A friend of mine during the early days of Active Paper once threatened
to install a "breath interlock" on my keyboard if I didn't stop writing
these huge strategic diatribes to our internal mailing list every time I
went out drinking. ;-) He swore that "mailing while intoxicated" ought
to be made illegal.

(For those that don't know, a "breath interlock" is a device that gets
installed in the cars of criminally drunk drivers; it prevents the
ignition from turning over unless their blood alcohol -- as measured by
blowing into a tube -- is less than the legal limit. I know this
because one of my best friends wrecked my car while I was out of town on
business several years ago; he had to have a breath interlock in his
car for two years after that. Moral of the story: never loan ANYONE
your car. :-)
