The Salmon Of Disco

Dig: The graph below demonstrates the difference in energy required to get a sober vs. a drunk person to dance at the disco party.


Notice that less energy is needed to activate a [red] catalyzed reaction — while a greater energy input is required to activate & drive its uncatalyzed [blue] counterpart to completion in the same amount of time.

Look the graph over once more while you chew on the above paragraph please; it’s entirely brain wraparound-able.

Like [blue] is the dude who just showed up cold sober to the party. While [red, catalyzed] is a properly liquored up party goer.

The reactions are complete when each hits the dance floor.

The red line denotes the amount of energy required before a lady-friend’s entreaties successfully convince a drunk person to disco dance. Blue for the amount of convincing Joe Sober dude needs.

The drunk person goes by the name Drunk Yo.

Joe Sober requires more energy to convince him to dance to We Are Family. You can count on it like a law of physics.

Drunk Yo’s activation energy is far lower than Joe Sober’s since Drunk Yo is halfway to the dance floor already.

Singing I got all my sisters & ME!!

By strategically lowering the activation energy required to move a drunk ass to the dance floor, liquor makes Drunk Yo a million times easier to convince. In this way liquor at the disco party behaves remarkably like chemical reaction catalysis.

Joe Sober will get funky eventually. It’s human nature. But without the benefit of catalysis…not funky enough. Not fast enough. Joe Sober is of no use to the party.

Not without liquid booze fuel.

Consider: a salmon steak breaks down far more readily, to its’ molecular components, in the presence of enzymes — digestive catalysts — in the stomach, than when left to rot in the sun. Each result — the molecular LEGO set from which salmon steak is originally assembled — looks quite the same.

But catalysis accelerates the situation in magnificently handy ways.

Yeah — whoa! — like Far Out.


If you learned one thing here today remember this: The crucial difference is speed.

Any questions?

    Great observations there, and very true it seems… People never cease to amaze, horrify and irritate me. 🙂 (Sometimes all at once).

    Hey have a great weekend Mike!

    Drunk Yo’s rediness, and, even pre-involvement in the “We are family ritual, is a beautifull thing. I think that there is even an un-factored element that adds to the flattening of the curve, (or even the stomping out of the curve, matterfact, the jack-hammering, mack-truck slamming of the curve), is trans-dermal catalyctic absorbtion as a supplement. Once the catalyst has been absorbed orally by the individual, then, and only then, proper application of the catylist all over the individual’s facade, preferably the chest and head area, will lead to a olfactory/tactile stimulation which will virtually square the original impact of the experiment. I find this to be more effective with the more refined versions of the catylist (mo’ stwrawng liquah!) because of the “solvent like” action, and the icey burning feeling. Once that shit is done, a muthafucka will do anything. If there were three hot bitches tellin him to fuck a goat, (I dont care if he’s mother Teresa or whatever), that goat is gettin fUUUcked.

    Yeah — that’s why catalysts are awesome dude!!

    OOH! I stumbled actoss this post cause this link came up from my post said realated stuff.. and such..

    But this is Avant-grade stuff!! I’m making notes!
    *Slowly *

    Cause I’ve, you know,had my way with some liquid booze… 🙂
