Very bad idea indeed.......but honestly, I doubt all that many of us, especially the older folks can say we haven't made the same experiment with a straight face.
It's when one sobers up that the joy seems to turn to knee-quaking fear, as in
"oh-my-god-that-was-so-stupid-I-coulda-got-killed!" kinda fear, anyhow.
Of course the one time I did so, didn't really have a choice, and rode down the sidewalk at circa 8Mph..cause I knew damnwell I was too crispy to be on it in the first place.
Here's a trick...fill a plastic glass mostly full of water.
Put the keys to your ped in the water.
Put the glass in the freezer.
THEN go drink.
By the time yer plasted enough to think of ridin, you ain't gettin them keys back, and the time it would take to thaw em out is usually sufficient to get sober enough to reconsider that decision.
