This century in one sentence

The American “competitive spirit” has ended up like this:

I’ve come to think of the 21st century as the “Hold My Beer Era,” because whenever it seems like someone has done something so dumb it can’t be topped someone else comes along, asks us to take said beverage and goes, “Challenge accepted.”

If you haven’t seen an example lately, wait a few moments. It never takes long for another one to appear.

    I think I picked the wrong decade to be on a medication where I can’t drink….(But yeah, I think Friar is 100% correct on this)

    Yeah, not having a blood vessel explode (or similar) is probably worth it.
