    Think it is vodka shots if I remember what I was heard correctly on the Q and A video.

    Is there a "cognitive test" involved, whereby someone has to drink said shot if they get an answer wrong? :D

    OOps I did a weird sentence there @Valentijn I meant if I remember what I heard correctly on the video.
    Haha! We would probably fail any cog testing that was decent even without the alcohol, even possibly walking in a straight line sometimes! I would, mind you there is always the before and after comparisons. I cant remember exactly what they would measure and not sure if they did say what would be measured.

    ME/CFS drinking games... imagine the carnage.

    :D Yes, I wouldn't be delirious with excitement for free alcohol. Once upon a time though...

    I get given a bottle of wine from time to time at Christmas and it sits in the corner of the room for years. I should give it away.
