I've been to a handful of parties in my life, and for the most part, they've all been rather staid affairs. Which is quiet ironic. You see, at most of these dos, I often run into people who tend to have the ideal solution for fixing the weakening Euro, rising inflation, ISIS, India's meek bowling attack, global warming and Shah Rukh Khan's retirement. Once those issues are dealt with it goes down the predictable, "So what do you do?" route.
