There's no hiding any more
In the old days, a drunk used to be able to crawl across a busy street in the rain, and if drivers took pity on him, no wider audience would ever know. Now, thanks to cell phone videos and web sites, that humiliating journey may have a million witnesses, and not very sympathetic ones at that. Here's a 1-minute video clip of a very inebriated man crawling on all fours across a wet road, under the heading "Your Daily Ha-Ha," with an obnoxious musical sound track added. If you've ever crawled home in a similar condition, as I did many years ago, you may experience intense mixed feelings as you watch.
