This is a highly amusing and timeless observation from Euboulos (405 - c.335 BC)

For sensible men I prepare only three kraters: one for health (which they drink first), the second for love and pleasure, and the third for sleep. After the third one is drained, wise men go home. The fourth krater is not mine any more - it belongs to bad behaviour; the fifth is for shouting; the sixth is for rudeness and insults; the seventh is for fights; the eighth is for breaking the furniture; the ninth is for depression; the tenth is for madness and unconsciousness.

Sound familiar to anyone?

lol just visit any UK town center on a Friday night and you can see 4 -7 and even 9! 9 involves a paddy wagon or an ambulance.
