WHY DO WE CLUB??(look at clip at the end)

I am soooo done with clubbin. Not only because I'm a married woman that has no place there, but because it started to become tiring. Why do we club? To meet someone or jump off, to get drunk, show off our gear, or dance and have a good time? Well I was an innocent clubber..lol. I went to dance and give/get numbers. But I made a conscious decision to stop clubbing. I started to notice that clubbing was a waste of time, figuratively and literally so I started to hit bars. No not to drink but to play darts and pool. Absolutely loved it!! Well there is a reason it was literally a waste of time. Do you know the origin of clubs? Everything has a beginning. Clubs were a form of worship to gods. Witchcraft. The loud drum/bass beat and flashing lights were a ritual of praise and it was meant to steal time. Ever notice after leaving the club it seems like you were only there for a couple of hours but it turned out to be more like 4! My last clubbin experience was 2003 at the popular E2 night club in Chicago. I was there for less than 20mins when my cuz and I noticed it was just toooo packed! Now realizing I was really done now! All the time, money and preparation put into going and only stayed for 20 mins? The money on the outfit that now smelled like smoke, the money for my hair that is now sweated out. Not to mention being ripped off to get in and get something to drink but also disrespected for what I considered the last time by a "club dude". Glad I made the choice when I did because a few weeks later this featured clip is what happened at the very same night club that I frequented monthly! It made national new! In 2003 21 club goers were killed when they were crushed and trapped while trying to flee from the cloud of dust that was left by the pepper spray sprayed into the air. Look at the people who are crushed and trapped in the doorway. Again tell me why you club?

i can't watch the video now, but i heard about this story. real tragic stuff.

i pretty much stopped going to clubs awhile ago. it was just too fake and too dangerous for me to continue going. not too mention how i just got tired of the same ol' same ol. when i hear of how someone got shot, stabbed, or beatdown @ the club i realize i did the best thing. that could have possibly been me...

weelllll i've never been the type to want to go to clubs. maybe a phobia of crowds, but mostly because i'm antisocial. i went to exactly 3 clubs. 1. 'the gate' in decatur, 2. 'chevy's' in warner robins, 3. 'bell bottoms' in buckhead.

i'm not a dancer, and i got no game to pick up women. didn't drink because i'd have been driving or was too young at the time. it was cool to play the field when i was younger, but i never had any interest in doing it in a club. that just made no sense to me back then, and still doesn't now.

i feel sorry for those people that had to go through that experience and even more so for the people who died. even more reason to not want to go.

@ Anonymous - (whom ever you might be :) ) You sound like you were very mature for your age and had some sense. I was not a drinker either..still is not. I went because friends would beg me to go and I would feel bad for not hanging out. When the reality is, there is more to hanging out than clubbing. Like my husband says "never force a "kick it"". You were brave to do the Gate..I could never bring myself to going there..lol. Went to one Ga. club at that was 112 years ago. Thanks for your post and come by anytime.

Honestly I don't like going to clubs and I honestly never really liked going when I did go.

Honestly, I went to pick up women when I did go.

You aren't any different than any other man in america! They all went to get numbers, to get girls, to get laid. Same time, same place next weekend. lol
