Poll: Here's an example of a "cool" party. Ever been to one of these? (35 votes)

Yes 57%
No 43%

if you've been to one of these, then you know you've made it to the top of the social ladder..see the plastic cups? that's a clear sign of "coolness" if you want to call it that. apparently every single cool party as one of those. so have you ever been to one of those?

Yep.

I was seven.

Good times.

#2 Posted by lostrib (42191 posts) -

that doesn't look fun at all

#3 Posted by Celldrax (14776 posts) -

No, and no thanks.

I'm much more content just getting drunk and stoned with 4 - 5 others.

#4 Posted by Trail_Mix (2579 posts) -

Not really.

I ain't the partying type anyway. Nothing to do.

This thread just made my day. It's been terrible and shitty, (worked 8 hours completely sick, throat so bad i couldn't even speak,) and this just made me laugh. And it hurt. But it was awesome. Thank you.

No and don't want to. Nothing fun about a hangover.

No

Riff-raff party ? No goddamn way.

#17 Posted by playmynutz (6343 posts) -

I have never mingled with that world

#18 Posted by johnd13 (8210 posts) -

I don't go to parties...

#19 Edited by AmazonTreeBoa (16745 posts) -

I grew bored with partying before I reached that point in my life. All my harsh partying happened when I was a teen and I grew out of it when I turned 18.

EDIT: After looking at the photo, it looks like a sausage fest, no thanks even if I was still into partying.

I gave up drinking when I started to get hangovers.

Am I still cool if I have ginger-ale in the cup?

#21 Posted by always_explicit (3075 posts) -

I live in the UK so those plastic cups are not really a "thing".

Besides that yes I have been to plenty of house parties. Less expensive to drink. Ability to have a conversation. Potentially smoke. Great places to meet women assuming it isnt a sausage fest like the photo in OP.

this one doesnt even look cool...

#23 Posted by -Renegade (8340 posts) -

look at all those guys standing around watching the other guys dancing with the girls uh ah no thanks.

#24 Edited by General_X (9091 posts) -

Yes I have, and they're almost always overrated. Small get-togethers with close-knit friends are far superior (unless your goals are to hit on random women, then more power to ya). They're almost always too crowded to the point of immobility, the games require sign-up sheets with so many people. The music is usually too loud and horrible. So yeah, they're romanticized but the reality is they're not as great as they seem.

We are not strangers to sarcasm, and it is rather annoying using it with a condescending manner.

Parties are overrated, I'd rather smoke and drunk with some close friends. A lot of people mixed with a lot of alcohol can be a recipe for disaster and it usually just makes me nervous.

The only time I participate in one of these is if I'm desperate to get laid and I'm usually not that desperate.

#26 Edited by Gaming-Planet (14360 posts) -

Yes. I call it a college frat party.

#27 Posted by Legend500 (149 posts) -

I'd rather go to the club but we usually go to parties beforehand. Usually just a bit more extreme than that as they involve heavy drugs usage, no brodudes at the ones I go to though.

#28 Posted by comp_atkins (31971 posts) -

yes, does that make me cool?

#29 Posted by BluRayHiDef (10839 posts) -

When I was in uni, I went to one...and left within minutes.

Agreed. I'd rather stay home and play video games by a long shot.

#31 Posted by Wilfred_Owen (20914 posts) -

Only parties I ever went to were like the end of Footloose.

#32 Posted by GamerForca (7105 posts) -

Yeah, but only a few during my college days. The ones I went to had a far better ratio than the one in the OP, and I wish I could've gone to more.

#33 Posted by Sword-Demon (7001 posts) -

I have. They're boring as hell.

#34 Posted by bobaban (10560 posts) -

That pic was supposed to be ironic right? That is in no way a cool party.

#35 Posted by ferrari2001 (17295 posts) -

I've been a a club a few times. It's pretty much the same thing except regulated and not inside of someones living room. Does that count?

#36 Posted by Braun_Roid_Rage (790 posts) -

Yep, but the parties i've been too had wayyy more sluts.

Yeah, it looks like my self-esteem would plummet if I went to a party like that. Hell, the place is a sausage fest; that's enough for me to not wanna go.

#38 Edited by hippiesanta (9987 posts) -

I did ... and I hate it ......... hahahahahaha it gave me goosebum remembering it all over again

I rather go to a party with real beer mug and wine glass ...lol

she's not getting bang... lol

#39 Edited by thereal25 (632 posts) -

Makes me kind of wonder does anyone enjoy that kind of bs?

#41 Posted by Crypt_mx (4218 posts) -

I see a lot of you are quite negative towards parties, but believe me they can be fun. I'm not a party type guy at all, despise clubs and things of that nature, but house parties always manage to surprise me.

Im 20 and I've been to many parties like the one above, and usually they are fun 50% of the time. It needs to be the right people, the right place, the right energy. Filling a house with booze and people doesn't make a party, I find that smaller house parties with cooler people always end up better than large house parties that are packed wall to wall.

parties are a complete waste of time, id rather be getting productive sh*t done and work on building a successful future

You should always leave some time to un-wind man. Being productive and successful is a very stressful path, focusing on work all the time in order to have a good future often destroys the present. Of course plan for the future and be mindful, but don't look at socializing as a "waste of time", its something you need to do to stay balanced as a human.

#43 Posted by edinsftw (4241 posts) -

Unfortunately, I lived in one of these houses during college. I never wanted to take a part of the party, but my roommate decided that he needed to party every weekend, trash the place and say i needed to help him cleanup because I was "part" of the party also. That meant staying in my room, going down there at 4 a.m. and telling them to quiet down so i can do my homework and/or get some sleep. Seriously fuck these parties the people who go to them are retarded. I couldn't have a single conversation with these people because the only thing they looked forward to was their weekends, when they get drunk. Its just a sad environment of mentally disturbed people wandering aimlessly through life unable to cope.

As an introvert, this is what I call hostile territory.

Pretty much. There's a reason many of the most high-stress, heavy workload, difficult to enter careers for young people are also stereo-typically known as some of the hardest partying professions. If you work 80 hours a week you can bet you're going to blow-off some steam.

This is a sober party if u didnt know ie. everyone here.
