"Passing out" is when you can no longer remain vertical. This does not always happen in your bed. "Sleeping" is a conscious decision...as in "I'm tired, so I'm going to go in my bedroom now." You can also tell which you did by the violence of the hangover.

Bathing dogs is a cakewalk. I once bathed an enormous stray cat with fur like a matted wookie. Now THAT was an experience!

Sleeping is what JewelrySlut did last night at 8, after having 4 too many drinks. Passing out is when I fall down and don't wake up until the following Tuesday. Sleep is OK. Passing out is a cry for help.

In all fairness, the Road Runner never really set any traps. It was that damned proactive Wile E Coyote that was constantly hoisted with his own petard.

When you pass out, a condition called syncope, you've lost blood flow to your brain (probably due to low blood pressure), and your brain hates not having blood (and thus, oxygen). What you're doing is just getting tired due to the intoxicating effects of the booze and falling asleep. If you pass out, you can go into a coma and wake up dead, so be careful not to do that, because I like reading your diary.

SaruSan, big silly, syncope is when the rhythm isn't quite right in a jazz song. Did you know that petard means "fart" in French? Thanks to all of you, I know that I am just a lazy drunk, not an unconscious one. And really, if you're asleep you can't keep drinking, so it all works out.
