I used to know a group of buddhists in the '80s. They were very proud of the fact that they'd been turfed out of a few restaurants for their rowdy behaviour.
Most people require 3 or 4 pints to loosen up and get into happy mode. Years of meditation and introspection had enabled these blokes to drop their inhibitions and get into well-refreshed party mode before you could take your coat off. Now that is a proper religion, a real goal to work towards.
