None of them make me a better online pilot..... some of them taste good..... but thats about it.. if anything they make me a worse online pilot.. but thats me.

Yay, I'm the first one to say beer.
I don't do that online stuff anymore.
Not since that unfortunate time when I was booted for being D&D on the 'Job'.
It was a once'er, honest.

Why? online/offline, it doesn't matter, the results are the same - KIA. Wish it wasn't so, but thats the facts. At least I can meet my demise over and over while enjoying my favorite non-work cold adult beverage. Oh yeah, beer is alot cheaper than my my licensed pharmacy drugs. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

Hmmm...let's see now..What intoxicant makes you a better online pilot?

I have no scientific evidence to support this, but I'd imagine it's the same one that makes you look like Mel Gibson and the toothless hagg at the end of the bar look like Michelle Pfeiffer.

02-13-2005, 08:30 AM
There are myriad valid reasons for self medication with mood and mind altering substances.

Being a better anything is probably not on the practical list.

02-13-2005, 08:42 AM
..................but when I am flying and drinking I prefer beer...

02-13-2005, 08:54 AM
Ice water or Ice Tea is about all I consume anymore at any time.

furmented milk

Milk, water, orange juice, coffee and all in dirty glass.

A good cold brew tastes great, but I have to keep taking my hands off the controls to drink it up. Bad deal when your in the thick of things.

So, a couple of shots of whiskey before takeoff and I'll be feeling fine by battle time. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

But, I realy do fly worse in this sim when buzzed. Other sims were better for the flying impaired.

Alchohol is a depressant. It slows down reaction times. All it does is at first, it makes you more confident

I like to drink beer out of the house & then 'grab the joystick' when I get home. Otherwise I like to drink whisky in the house - usually Famous Grouse in my black, sugarless coffee. If it's a single malt then it's straight.

I don't know whether you spelt the name of the beer right either, but Glenlivet ain't spelt the way you spelt it! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I usually take three hits of acid, wait an hour or two and then fly. It's much easier for me to find enemy aircraft because they're all bright colors, and I can smell them from billions of miles away.


I, like all aces, don't trip and fly. Fact.

What? No one imbibes the fermented juice of the grape? Having moved to NorCal some time back, I find myself needing to 'do' the wine-country thingie from time-to-time (nothing beats free samples, lemme tell ya). Right now a bottle of a nice San Giovese from some lesser-known Sonoma vinyard is what's happening http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Don't get me wrong, beer is still great--particularly LaBatt's Blue.

When I'm in the mood to imbibe and fly (OK Fri or Sat nights after the wife and son are tucked in and Da's got some quite time) I'll have a couple of fingers of Gentleman Jack neat or some Jamison Irish whisky. Both great for sipping during those Longggggg transpacific (yet realistic!) co-ops http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

02-14-2005, 11:32 PM
Its situation dependent for me: http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

If i'm flying Spits or Hurri's (or a Mossie, SOON, SOON!); Early Grey tea with honey (quite), or three fingers of The Macallan 18 Y/O sherry cask, french oak finish, straight with two cubes of ice in a crystal tumbler. No, i'm not picky.

If i'm flying American aircraft, Jack Daniels or Makers Mark, straight up, in a double shot glass, celebratory swallow after every kill.

If i'm flying Russian Aircraft has to be Vodka, but its French Vodka, Grey Goose, chilled and neat. Got a real Normandie Niemen thing going on. Otherwise its Absolut, from the fridge, and the bottle usually has a pair of vanilla beans inside it.

If i'm flying Japanese aircraft its either a Japanese single malt ("yes, for relaxing times, try Suntory times", its actually VERY, VERY good. Try the 15 y/o) or the local shochu, in a traditional earthenware cup that I made and fired myself. Hey, its what Saburo would of drank, he was from Kyushu.

If its a German Aircraft its 500ml bottles Schufferhoffer Heffewise (Blonde Beer) straight from the neck or some of that Stroh rum stuff (which is actually austrian). At 80% alcohol (thats 160 proof boys and girls) you could probably use it to pep up V1 rocket fuel. Afterall the Germans used to do it with unaged Clavados!

At least I dont fly the P.11, otherwise i'd be tempted to buy some Polish Pure spirit (92% alcohol).

Vodka martini... shaken, not stirred.
