What happens to alcohol in my body? Find out more about how alcohol can effect you male and female bodies Alcohol is absorbed into your body through the stomach and small intestines.
There are replies you may not give. There are comments you may not make. There are truths you may not tell, in the world of public relations, for the public are fickle, and behave as a mob. A mob in all its feral, brutal depravity, lacking any and all of the qualities we laud upon humanity that allow us to feel so smug over all of the hapless animals that we raise ourselves over.
And we are all, whether we admit it or not in public, under strict censorship of the mob. Even admitting that the mob censors our thoughts and feelings and the expression thereof is risky.
The mob may notice. Some parts of the internet glory in the mob. Even mentioning 4chan is risky. Our own blog is mercilessly and ruthlessly moderated with a low-orbit ion cannon.
But let me talk to you about the dark side of indie public relations a bit. They are easily dealt with on your own bit of the internet. Quite often you let them ramble on, and they spool out more than enough rope to hang themselves, and as often as not, a bunch of fans will come whaling in on them.
Trolls are more problematic elsewhere. When a troll starts to spout shit on some high-profile and influential site on the internet, you have a problem.
If it was just some random argument on some random site between a couple of random usernames… who cares? Who gives a crap?
And all is well. That is not true. You are not a very nice person. By which I mean, independent game developers get more nasty shit from gamers than they get praise. Right now you are preparing to lecture me about how I talk to customers, or how I deserve to be broke and unsucessful.
I wonder just how many other creative industries have to deal with customers like this. Then again, maybe all of them do. I just make games, so I happen to know about the games side of things.
Maybe a musician can chime in and tell me how shitty people can be. The internet hates you. Were I being politically correct right now and toeing the party line I would instantly disagree with myself.
Do not argue with the trolls!
You make yourself look bad! Look at fucking Phil Fish! Look at what happened to him! Poor Phil, we say. He meant well but he lost his cool.
He let the internet bring out his naughty, bad side. The side that spoke what he actually thought and felt. Look what the internet did to him! If only Phil had kept his mouth shut, we say. Phil Fish, you fucking told them what you thought. You told them how you felt. You told them the actual score.
What was actually going on. But deep down we all know, really, that Phil Fish was right.The reason people often get more lively when they've had a drink is that alcohol affects parts of the brain responsible for self-control.
Your reactions also slow down, and you may become uncoordinated or unsteady on your feet. I’m an expert on how technology hijacks our psychological vulnerabilities.
That’s why I spent the last three years as Google’s Design Ethicist caring about how to design things in a way that defends a billion people’s minds from getting hijacked. Bread, beer & yeast The history of bread and cake starts with Neolithic cooks and marches through time according to ingredient availability, advances in technology, economic conditions, socio-cultural influences, legal rights (Medieval guilds), and evolving taste.
“The hot drink still does add a little heat to the body, so if the sweat’s not going to assist in evaporation, go for a cold drink.” Jay’s team got to the bottom of the “hot drink” tip . Chocolate has been prepared as a drink for nearly all of its history.
For example, one vessel found at an Olmec archaeological site on the Gulf Coast of Veracruz, Mexico, dates chocolate's preparation by pre-Olmec peoples as early as BC. On the Pacific coast of Chiapas, Mexico, a Mokaya archaeological site provides evidence of cacao beverages dating even earlier, to BC.
“If you drink a hot drink, it does result in a lower amount of heat stored inside your body, provided the additional sweat that’s produced when you drink the hot drink can evaporate,” Jay says.
