Title: For anyone who knows Chino's dumba...
Post by: Sixil on September 02, 2010, 05:17:08 PM
Hey guys, I'm a lurker here and was actually introduced to Dream Theater by Chino. Chino is one of my best friends and was my room mate for a year and a half at our University.

As those of you that know Chino from his posts, know that Chino likes a good night of boozin. We've had many great, ridiculous nights together. This one however, was not so smooth for our brave bar hopping adventurer.

I'd like to now direct you to this incredible news article:   http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs430.snc4/47367_438565781672_503811672_5473511_1741470_n.jpg

so, the moral of the story folks, is to not get hammed and fall asleep while sitting on a balcony railing, let alone on the 5th floor.

I've seen him everyday in the Hospital so far, hes doing well and one of the first things he said was "Go tell DTF my story!" So, alas here you are!  His whole body pretty much hurts, as it should, but hes in good spirits and should make a solid recovery.

Jesus. Glad he is alright. It's a good thing he can laugh about it now, but he really shouldn't considering the dangerous position he put himself in.


And I'm glad it's my week to face him in our fantasy baseball league.

I'm glad he's ok, but I don't think there is anything funny about it.  I'm sure he'll learn more from it than simply "Don't drink and hang out on balconies".

Rest assured, hes been definitely doing some hard thinking and I can tell hes learned himself a nice lesson. We can laugh because of how awful this could have been for him, and we're all simply relieved that it wasn't.

Nah, since he survived it's funny.  When I do something incredibly stupid, I like to be able to laugh it off.  If it were me, I'd certainly make fun of myself, and I'd go along with others who wished to as well.

And then there's this:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4k2L7oNMDe0

Glad he's okay. A friend of mine got drunk and fell from the second level of a parking garage one night. He sustained some brain damage and was in a coma for some time. Thankfully he's made a full recovery, but things were looking pretty bad for a while.

My best drunk story involves me getting hospitalized and expelled from school. Not too proud of that one. The one I am proud of however, is me waking up in a house in Morgan Hill, a city that's a half hour away from San Jose. :hat

It sure as fuck isn't funny at all! Its a wake up call. Chino has a problem with alcohol that goes beyond the norm. He needs to examine himself and make some serious life decisions. Perhaps, Wkiml could have a talk with him to better enlighten him as to the pitfalls of long term alcohol abuse. Its not cute, and it is not funny and can lead to a lifetime of destruction.
My dad was a hardcore alcoholic. It took his life at age 57. Its not pretty. It all starts when your young. I hope Chino keeps that picture of himself in plain site as a reminder of how lucky he is to be alive.

I'd be more than willing too talk to him, if he's got an open mind about it, I myself lived in denial for years, never thinking it was a problem until I too spent one to many times in the emergency room . The last time was a wake up call for me.

That is difficult word to define as a blanket statement, but I think its safe to assume from all the drunken photo's, the story's he tells about his drinking, and oh yeah, the fact he was hammered and fell from a balcony is a pretty good indication he may have a bit of a problem brewing. That's just my hunch.

Alcoholic is a strong word but anyone who drinks until they pass out or has blackouts from drinking is on the wrong path when it comes to any alcoholic beverage (beer/wine/spirits) Although its socially acceptable and legal doesn't make it any less dangerous than illegal drugs. The long term effects are much more harmful to all of the body major systems than many illegal drugs. I could go on and on but I won't. I just hope this experience for Chino, may have opened his eyes.

Falling out of a 4th story balcony because your hammered signals a problem, period. That and passing out drunk and posting pictures of it like its funny.  Alcoholism starts somewhere, Sigz. Its just something that happens when this shit becomes the norm in your life. If you don't think what happened to Chino should be cause for concern, I don't know how you define it? Maybe being 45, I have seen the path of fun in youth that leads to big problems in many people, and it all starts out as good fun. Chino obviously has a problem, and nothing could convince me otherwise.

I think I can answer that for him. When you were in the place wkiml was in with alcohol, their is no such thing as social drinking, because you don't have the ability to pull that off.
Forgive me, wkiml if I over step my bounds on this one.

No offense to Sigz, but he has not had enough life experience to get it quite yet. Only time and living life will bring this understanding. I have seen so much! He will be offended by this post and probably give me a typical elitist comeback to this post but its just the truth.

I think that friends are all worried about him and since he's ok physically people use humor as a nervous mechanism.  I do it and I know a lot of people do it.  His good friend who posted this thread did it too on FB.  But underneath it all we all worry if this way just a mistake in the moment or something else.  I think it's safe to say we all happy that he's ok and now he can think about if it is something more.

glad to hear Chino's doing alright, that's pretty damn crazy. I think saying he has a problem is a bit much, we always used to joke that "You can't be an alcoholic if you're in college", but I think there's some truth to that. I, as well as both of my roommates drank all the time in college and they barely ever touch the stuff now a year and change after graduation, and I try to plan my beer explorations so that I don't get drunk. That said, it *is* a serious and lifelong disease, I know my dad hasn't had a drink in more than 20 years and he still goes to meetings on occasion.

Hey fella's. I'm back home and semi mobile. Still in a good amount of pain, but I have a hefty supply of pain killers to help me with that. I appreciate many of your kind words and concerns during my time of recovery in the hospital. I would like to point out that this accident did not happen because I was drunk, it just happened to occur while I was drunk. You see, I sit on the rails of balconies all the time, its just something I do. The reason I fell backwards was because I fell asleep while having a smoke. I know one can argue that I passed out because I was drunk, but thats not how I work. I have a really hard time staying awake once my body decides its ready for bed, no matter how hard I fight it. I have fallen asleep behind the wheel numerous times, in class, at a Megadeth concert, during firework shows.... all while sober. I can't always control when my eyes shut, its up to them most of the time.

Guess he won't be seeing Avatar again any time soon.

Not if I have anything to do with it.

In about 6 months, you will get mad pussy with that story. Glad to see you're doing alright :metal

The amount of tail that visited me in the hospital was insane. It almost got to the point where I was getting sick of it. Gorgeous girls I never met before were coming in like crazy.

Glad he's ok.  Keep us updated.  And tell him to accept me on fb because he hasn't yet.

My bad man, I got so many friend requests in the days after the accident, I decided to only accept the chicks, lol. Add me again.

whoa!  I am so thankful you are okay chino...this will definately be something you will never forget (or stop sharing)

Yeah... Whenever I'm out and someone starts telling a story, no matter what it is, I know I got them beat.





*****

While I appreciate the concerns on alcoholism, I can assure you I don't have an issue. I know that denial is a common problem with it, but I know I don't have an issue. In regards to the drunken pictures thread, honestly. I think only 2 or 3 of those are from after the age of 19. There is never a time where I am craving a drink, or get pissed that no one is partying that night. I never have drank by myself, unless I just cooked hot dogs or something and wanted a Corona to go with them. I could go weeks at a time and never think of having a drink.

I don't just randomly pass out places.

In this pic, you can clearly see I gathered pillows and a blanket and chose to sleep on the porch. I was on vacation, it was a beautiful night, and the dude I was sharing a room with was doing the dirty with some chick, so I decided to sleep outside, whats so bad about that?

In this picture, I just tripped and fell. I wasn't passed out. I was laying there and couldn't get up because I was laughing so hard.



I guess what I am trying to say is that I am 21. These are the years where you are suppose to get it out of your system. I think its safe to assume that the majority of you older members know exactly what I am talking about. I would honestly say I had a bigger problem with drinking when I was 17 or 18 as opposed to now, and I am pretty sure I am in the clear.

Hi everyone, I am the one who fell off the balcony. I would like to clear a few things up here. I am a former student because I transferred to another college... I was up there helping friends move in... I fell while drunk, not because I was drunk. I will randomly fall asleep with no warning late at night, this was the first time in over a year, it just happened to be at a really bad time. I hope the majority of you people wake up to the smell of your houses on fire and find no way out. Find something to do with your lives others than trolling the internet and ripping on people you know anything about, just so you feel better about yourself.

Hey guys, I'm a lurker here and was actually introduced to Dream Theater by Chino. Chino is one of my best friends and was my room mate for a year and a half at our University.

As those of you that know Chino from his posts, know that Chino likes a good night of boozin. We've had many great, ridiculous nights together. This one however, was not so smooth for our brave bar hopping adventurer.

I'd like to now direct you to this incredible news article:   http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs430.snc4/47367_438565781672_503811672_5473511_1741470_n.jpg

so, the moral of the story folks, is to not get hammed and fall asleep while sitting on a balcony railing, let alone on the 5th floor.

I've seen him everyday in the Hospital so far, hes doing well and one of the first things he said was "Go tell DTF my story!" So, alas here you are!  His whole body pretty much hurts, as it should, but hes in good spirits and should make a solid recovery.

Oh holy crap. get better soon, chino!

Hey guys, shitty news. Turns out my legs and lungs sustained way more damage than originally thought. I got rushed to the hospital yesterday because I was feeling unbarable chest pains. Turns out multiple blood clots have formed in my legs and lungs. Usually blood thinner would take care of this, but they are concerned about that method because of the damage to my splene.

Forgot about this thread, just thought I'd give everyone a little update.

By the time this was all said and done, I had three different hospital visits totaling 14 nights. My third stay, they put a filter in my main artery to catch any new clots from reaching the heart. I get blood test done every week, and cat scans/ultra sounds every 3 weeks. The clots in my right leg are completely gone, but the ones in my left leg have actually gotten larger. I occasionally have a hard time time sleeping due to chest pains, but I deal with it. I have been back to work full time for over a month now and can do almost anything I would like to do. I haven't had alcohol since the fall, even though the temptation is killing me.

On a side note I got a letter a while back from the university saying I am banned from both campuses. If I am found anywhere on either of them I get arrested immediately. That wouldn't bother me, except I spent 2 years there, and have many friends that I can no longer go visit. I sent the head of housing 3 emails and called him 4 times and never received a response. I sent him and the dean a hand written letter earlier this week, and started it with "with the advice of council.." I then explained the situation, how everything went down, and why I felt I should be allowed back in the dorms. I stressed that I didn't break a single rule. I was signed in properly as a guest, my alcohol was signed in, I was in a 21 or older room, everyone in the room was of age, etc.. I just made a poor decision. I also stated how within 24 hours of falling, I had 6 lawyers contact me, and I more than likely could have gotten some sort of settlement out of the school. I could have used some bullshit like there was no lighting on the balconies, even though codes call for it. I chose not to because I don't believe in getting a reward for stupidity. We'll see if I hear any response.

I know he loves Avatar but I don't think he wants to wind up like the lead character. :tick2:

You mean nine feet tall, blue, and nailing the hottest chick in the village?
No I mean a crippled wannabee living in a virtual world he doesn't really exist in. :tick2:

I knew you had some punch lines in ya!
Followed by the shameless promotion of his emote... :guitarded:

 :yeahright

It's the Valon emote.

Oooh, good one!
VERY good one, and one that newbies won't get.
Was Valon the one who REALLY liked Vanden Plas?

And then turned out to be a hologram created by the government or something?

Well, I use mine whenever possible. :rina:

Except my other one....I try to pretend it's not there. Although Volk likes it. :rina2:

I like this one too as a I-disagree-and-am-going-to-kill-you-with-this-lasso-Phantom-style-thingy. (http://i963.photobucket.com/albums/ae120/thinkofme120/Punjab.gif)

If I had an emoticon, it would be a giant friendly pot leaf.

Alas, I do not have an emoticon.

According to time hop, today marks the fifth anniversary of my little accident. A lot has changed in the last five years. I reflect back on that little mishap at least once a day at some point. It's always in the back of my mind. I've come a long way since then. I've had a few medical hiccups since this event, but nothing too bad all things considered. It's been cool becoming a real adult since then, and not just one on paper. I'm glad I got the opportunity.

Stay classy.

Damn dude... I can't believe it's been that long. Holy shit.

Glad you were alright, I remember thinking "It's really fucking weird that I'm worried about a guy I've never met" at the time.  :rollin

Congrats Bri. If you can keep a bottle outta your hands I bet you can probably live another four, maybe five, years.

I don't think I hopped from Portnoy's forum to here until 2011, so I was reading the first post without really looking at the date and thought this just happened.  :lol

I'm honestly just amazed I've been in this community for so long. Obviously time spent here doesn't hold a candle to many others', but I was still in high school when this happened. Wow.
