I get some fear pumping by going fast in the wrong lane in oncoming traffic.

Why do you think truck drivers have such strict regulations? If they are driving long enough, they are required to switch out drivers, or sleep for so long..
Doesn't matter that their trucks can cause a whole lot more damage than us..
If you think about it, you are in control of a weapon.
and your car can't drive itself..

A woman is watching the news, when it is reported that there is a car driving up the motorway on the wrong side of the road. She remembers that her husband is traveling along that same road and, worrying, quickly dials his number.
"Honey!" she shouts, when he answers. "Be careful! There's a car driving the wrong way on the motorway!"
"It isn't just one!" replies her husband. "There are hundreds of them!"

I've had a few scares and when I was 18 I nodded off and rear ended some one I felt like such an asshole. everyone was ok but i never want to have that happen again. If i feel slightly like im getting too tired to drive, I pull over immediately and take a nap. Energy drinks and loud musac help before I get anywhere near that point.

Same with going to Hana here. Lol. Driving 3+ hours after well rested is much easier than driving 30 minutes after a gy shift.

I've nodded off and fallen in the ditch. Since then, I drink an energy drink or just don't drive.
EDIT: energy drink for short drives, else I just sleep.

Is it okay for a drunk guy (4 beers in last hour) to drive 2 miles to his house?

I think if you need to do something to keep from getting tired behind the wheel, then anything you do is disguising what is truly going on. Just because you can keep your eyes open, doesn't meant your brain is as functioning.
If I was to stay awake for 24 hours by drinking caffeine all night, how do you think my response would be compared to if I had been up for 3 hours?

Roll down the windows (if it's cold)
Blast music, and sing along at the top of my lungs
Not only does it keep me awake; but, it also gets hilarious reactions from people I'm driving past

I'll also continually smack my check or punch my leg

where do you get the idea the only person you were endangering was yourself?
Unless you are in the desert or something.. that's not really possible.

If you really want to be technical.. a EMS responder who responds to your stupidity/accident could get in a wreck. But that is going to far.
