3 sheets to the wind

does anyone have any idea where this phrase came from?
Andy? You're full of useless knowledge.

Ah yes, three sheets to the wind, it's a nautical related phrase for being drunk, shitcanned, wasted, bombed, tore-up-from-the-floor-up, or otherwise tiffany-esque.

So the sheet is the line that controls the sails on a ship, there are 3 sails, so if you are 3 sheets to the wind then that means all the sails are flying around out of control, and the ship is at best just sitting around, at worse being tossed violently with the seas, much as tiffany is after having 2 or 3 drinks.
