***in june, the champ blessed the people of vsb.com with his in-depth look at the opposite sex altering goggles, the deadly accessory known to turn demons to dimes and a-holes to adonises. today, the champ has decided to add a couple more goggles to your lexicons, doing his best to help people and fight crime. enjoy and sh*t***
the phrase that started it all, it describes the phenomenon that occurs when you’re drunk and horny and every scalawag you noticed at the bar when you were sober all of a sudden becomes your own personal dulcinea, waiting to be plucked away and placed on your quixoteesque steed. their attractiveness also goes up exponentially in direct correlation with the amount of time left before the bar or club closes, and the amount of “success” you had that night. in equation form,
V (number of drinks you’ve had that night)
X (number of hours left before the bar closes) * Y (number of phone number’s you’ve received that night) +1
Z (the thickness of the goggles)
going by this formula, if you’ve had 5 drinks, and there was 1 hour left before closing, and you had only received 1 phone number so far that night, your goggle thickness would be 2.5, a high level, but still a bit under the dangerous 4. people at 4 and above are at the point to where they’ll approach and take/go home with people who they probably wouldn’t even sit next to on a bus if they were sober. this is where people hump and give lapdances to empty barstools
the effect of Beer Goggles also depends greatly on your friends, or, more specifically, which type of friends they are. in this case, they come in three categories
A) good wingmen and women who’ll see that you’re wearing thick Beer Goggles, and will do everything in their power to thwart you and your drunken advances
B) good wingmen and women who’ll see that you’re wearing thick Beer Goggles, and will do everything in their power to encourage you, knowing that it will make for a spectacular future story, as well as potential leverage. (“okay man. You win. I’ll let you borrow the flatscreen for the fight as long as you don’t tell anybody about last saturday night”)
C) they’re too drunk themselves to even notice
Beer Goggle plusses: other than the possibility of easy sex with a possible vagrant…none. unless, of course, you love being the butt of jokes and making frequent trips to the free clinic
Beer Goggle minuses: pretty much every worst-case sexual scenario you can imagine becomes a possibility.
Verdict: basically, if you’re caught wearing these repeatedly… you need to either stop drinking, or find some better friends.
those who have had the misfourtune of wearing these know that they’re probably the most potent form of goggle yet. an uber goggle. an anthrax goggle. it occurs when you’ve been corresponding through blogs, email, chat, or Instant Messenger with someone you’ve never met in person. sometimes these conversations can last hours into the night, creating this tired haze, which gives you unusual stamina as well as unusual freedom with the tongue and spirit. the tiredness, combined with the lateness and the fact that you’re probably wearing your bed clothes, gives the conversation a certain erotic nature, which sometimes eventually leads to caught feelings, phone sex, and, in extreme cases, proclamations of love
Instant Messenger/Email/Chat Goggle Plusses: there’s a chance that these are real feelings and not the product of a goggle induced tired proclamation and/or act. you could be kindred spirits, soulmates separated by a monitor and hundreds of miles, but…
Instant Messenger/Email/Chat Goggle Minuses:…more than likely, you just need to take your horny ass to bed. being tired can be as much as an intoxicant as jack daniels, and being up late vibing with a like-minded member of the opposite sex can be as much as an aphrodisiac as eringoes or Halle Berry. plus, you don’t want to run the risk of saying or doing something inappropriate and basically ruining a decent friendship
Verdict: again, being tired can be just as bad as being drunk. and, again, if you feel like the goggles are getting pretty thick, then its probably time to take your ass to bed. If these feelings and inclinations are real, they’ll be just as real at 2pm the next day. plus, phone sex is just that…phone sex. i’ve heard that there’s no worse feeling than doing the post-coitus clean-up by yourself, while subsequently hoping that the person on the other end isn’t streaming all of this live on their audioblog.
am i missing any? people of vsb, what goggles should be added to the list?
