alcohol can cause dehydration, which can be really serious and detrimental to, mostly, your weeked that you just spent hundreds of dollars on. not to mention the money you spent on that jager or jack that got you to the state of chills, diarrhea, vomitting, headaches, hypotension and even unconsciousness.

i say it because the risk is amplified in 105 degree weather.

that's why the beer tent is so cool and relaxing. to keep dehydration from happening.




but dancing is good. dance all you want.

This is a weird post, but there's some truth in it. Growing up in the desert taught me some drinking fundamentals-one of which is don't drink a lot in the blaring sun. You can get really really sick. If you do, drink one serving of water after every drink to keep yourself hydrated.

yes, i think that that's a good rule of thumb. one glass of water for every drink. because, don't get me wrong, i enjoy myself a drink. just not in the desert.

the key words are "can cause". it doesn't always, unless it's consumed in massive amounts. and also, like i said, the heat of the desert helps. you know when you wake up after a night of drinking and you're ridiculously thirsty and your head is pounding -those are the symptoms of dehydration. of course, there's other stuff in there too beside dehydration. but in most cases - it's true.

wait i'll throw in an edit:

EXCESSIVE drinking can cause dehydration.

Relax homie, I agree with you completely.

haha...this is too funny. We drank hella beers last year and we were fine, just drunk. I'm from Canada's arctic, and the heat wasn't too bad. This topic seems to get blown outta proportion.

it would be blown out of proportion if there were four times the amount of replies there are now. it's just something i thought i'd bring up. and yeah, you know, there are people who have much more tolerance for alcohol's effect on the body. but imagine all the little 100 lb party girls who come here thinking they're gonna get pissed every night and then one of them ends up in the hospital and they're wondering why.

i just think a lot of people don't really realize what bad of a mix it is - the desert and alcohol.

i don't REALLY care if people decide to drink. i mean, i'd have a beer too. but i know a lot of campers are planning on getting really really drunk and i'd just like to bring it to attention that there are consequences in some cases.

just being looking out for for my fellow coachella-ers.

I was commenting on your conflicting statements about alcohol causing dehydration, particularly in the heat, and your statement that the beer in the beer garden prevents dehydration.

"that's why the beer tent is so cool and relaxing. to keep dehydration from happening"

dancebitches
03-17-2008, 11:47 AM
oooh i see. i must have said it wrong.

i meant that the environment of the beer tent (misters, shade, etc) prevent dehydration. like, in a way, they compensate for the damage you're doing while drinking.

does that make more sense?

and your statement that the beer in the beer garden prevents dehydration.

"that's why the beer tent is so cool and relaxing. to keep dehydration from happening"

Ummm...the COOLNESS helps prevent dehydration, because you don't sweat as much.

It wasn't the clearest statement ever, maybe, but I'm not sure how you managed to interpret it so badly.

BTW...dancebitches is like a med student or something like that, so...

no no no. just respiratory therapy. this isn't know-it-all-med-student talk. just normal, anatomy-physiology-class-lecture talk. oh and paganman7 probably has a phd, from the looks of it. but thanks marc, for defending me.

Reading that post again, I'm not sure how I misinterpreted that statement either. At any rate, I wasn't trying to be a douche; I just misread the post and what developed seemed curious to me.

so...she's a med student. she knows that sun and alcohol dehydrate? wowsers what an education that must be.

i meant to say that the mom thing is MY schtick. i'm a bit mom-like.

i didn't think you were trying to be a douche. though there are lots of overly critical, quick to react douches on forums, i try to treat people like non-douches because i'm not a douche, and i'd like people to treat me like i'm not a douche too.

so, yeah. i'm not being defensive, just carrying on a conversation while trying to clarify myself.

i will do the same i did last year, drink from the moment i get on the plane till the moment i pass out sunday nite. didnt have any problems last year am sure i wont this year. i guess growing up in milwaukee does have one advantage after all.

thanks mom, and I'll be sure to look both ways before crossing the field too.
