Beer Goggles: What Happens When You Drink & Drive? genre: Indie-Script & Tongue-In-Cheek

Did you ever wonder what happens to your vision when you've had a few too many cocktails? The following visual is from an ad campaign aimed at drunken drivers and it simulates the effects of being intoxicated. The ad format has been used in prior campaigns but I thought it was rather effective in pointing out the risks of drinking and driving. Regardless, I simply like visual images that mess with our brains.

On a lighter note, I find it amusing to compare today's attitudes on drinking with the one's that existed when I was in high school. At the time, one of my teachers was known for his many oddball comments. One of my favorites related to his take on drinking and driving. With his signature deadpan delivery, he would tell us the following, "If you're going to drink and drive, make sure you have a car." Today, I suspect such a comment might land a teacher in hot water. So much for the good old days.

By the way, to get the full effect of the visual, click on the following thumbnail image and it will open a full sized one.

Thanks for the post. It does do weird things with your eyes. The teachers comments would have lead to a dismissal in todays world.

Considerable sums have been paid out in the UK for PPI claims where people have been missold payment protection insurance.
If you have been sold PPI in the last 10 years you too could be entitled to make a claim for a PPI refund.

PPI was missold if one of a number of different criteria applied.

For instance if you were told that PPI was obligatory when you
took out a loan or if the repayment figures you were
quoted automatically included PPI premiums then you may have a claim.

If your claim is valid then most financial providers will pay
out with minimum fuss. Most providers succesfully process your claim
within 8 weeks and if you are due a payout
they will make payment within 28 days. So in just 3
months time you could have the money in your bank account!
