I am reminded of two stories:
One: Five guys go out for a drinking party, have a great time, till a fight breaks out. Then one guy pulls out a gun and kills a fellow partier.
Two: Five guys go out to blow some weed one evening, and end up forming a famous band.
Well, in re the video (Jimmy Dore's videos have a standard youtube license, but I could find no link found in a commons search), I think we learn what to expect from The New Yorker, in case anyone didn't know.
My own thoughts on the issue, well one actually, for what it's worth: I believe it helps to remember the difference between a buzz and a blitz.
