What people don't get about drinking and coding is this.

Coding and development is very similar to art. You've to be creative in your solutions. You've withdraw all emotions and concentrate. And you've to find your own creativity.

You have drunk artists all the time, why not drunk coders?

    because the purest art is what happens when your rationality turns off therefore there's nothing to hinder your usage and expression of feelings.

    We don't only need to be creative but also precise.

    For me 1 beer can be useful to clean my brain and stop it from thinking too much about other things instead of coding.

    Alcochol can be useful but in resonable quantities.

    I wholeheartedly support this opinion. We need drunk coders. To make world a better place.

    I wouldn't say coding itself is art.putting your code together in neat architectures, solving problem concepts, those can be artistic.

    Code is a mistress demanding a lot of discipline and if you don't give it to her, she will fuck you up.

    Hmm... I don't necessarily disagree with the "code is art" idea, although it's not always the case. Guess it depends on what you're coding.

    With that said, I prefer to, uh, smoke and code.. (:

    @Gregozor2121 i agree.
    however if you've ever seen an xml file, or its specs, you should already know that most programmers have trouble doing most things in reasonable quantities
