Friday Faves: Should Blackout Mistakes be Forgiven?

"So can anyone tell me what went down last night?" Ahh, the magical college blackout. These words have become way-too-familiar over the past few years I've spent at this fine academic institution. Sunday mornings - Gatorade and a McDonald's breakfast sandwich in hand - I sit in my living room with my roommates, attempting to piece together the events from the night before.

Now, in an interview with old-man interviewer Larry King, Mr. Brown is saying that he can't really believe it happened, as if he magically left his body and wasn't there when the entire brawl went down.

Top 10: Worst Things a Guy Can Say the Morning After

It’s Friday night and you throw on your hottest little black dress, toss back some shots with your girlfriends and then hit the club, bar or, everyone's favorite, the kegger.

Before you tape up that last box and kiss your friends goodbye, though, take a moment to reflect on the year that was.

The Morning After: The Pee Pee Night

I’ll put it plainly: On my 19th birthday, I made it my duty to get really, really drunk. It was my freshman year at school, and my parents had come up for the weekend and taken a few of my closest friends out to celebrate with us.
