Yeah, I mean, what's up with those guys?  Driving sober has gotten 
boring.  There's no challenge anymore.  After five or six drinks, I find 
the double-vision quite enjoyable.

It's not going to affect anybody who has two glasses of wine at dinner.  
It is a good wake-up call, since people people VASTLY overestimate their 
ability to drive even at the lowered legal limit.

Many purist photographers (HCB and others) have spoken about abstaining 
from alcohol because of its negative effects on their motor coordination. 
 When you're driving a car, the consequences of having too much to drink 
are more than causing a few more blurry shots when handholding at slow 
shutter speeds.
