Oh yeah, that's another thing - the French don't get shitfaced at bars (especially females). I'm from Canada and had a few friends from the UK on my year abroad in France and that was an eye-opening experience to see how much Brits drink. I'm talking Roman orgy-style drinking. You drink, induce vomiting, drink some more. Often before going out to bars we would go out for dinner and these girls would deliberately choose to eat what seemed to be the least unpleasant thing coming back up (so nothing with tomato sauce, apparently). That's how premeditated these things were. I was positively aghast (and mind you, I had grown up with alcohol given my East European upbringing - I was always around it and it was never taboo, so it's not like I'm a prude. But these girls were something else.)
