  1. Don’t Worry, Humans, Fish Are Silly Drunks Too

    All right, bud, I'm calling you a crab!

    Do you "drink like a fish?" Then according to a study published this week in the journal of Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, you might be a negative influence on everyone around you. New research reveals the impact that alcohol has on schools of zebrafish, and it sounds...familiar.

  2. What Are The World’s Heaviest-Drinking Nations?

    Yay 'Murica, I guess.

    The World Health Organization has released its Global status report on alcohol and health 2014, and as the name suggests, it's kind of a bummer. Severity of alcohol related diseases aside, however, it does have some interesting insights. The United States didn't even make the "top ten", so good for us, I think?

  3. West Des Moines Police Department Shows Off Killer Photoshop Skills to Warn You Not to Drink and Drive

    We hope their sketch artist is better than this.

    Don't drink and drive or you might turn into a weird sad looking stick person and go to jail. At least that's the message we're taking away from this image posted to the West Des Moines police department's Facebook page yesterday as a warning to St. Patrick's Day drinkers. Seriously though, don't drink and drive.

  4. Pregnant Women Who Drink Wine Have Better Behaved Kids, But Not Because of the Alcohol

    Was this study done by thirsty pregnant women?

    There's certainly evidence to show that drinking too much during pregnancy is bad, but counter to that, a new study found that women who drank one glass of wine per week during pregnancy had better behaved children than teetotallers. That's not an invitation to start drinking if you're pregnant. Read on.

  5. Know the Facts About AAA’s “Tipsy Tow” Program Before You Get Drunk on New Year’s Eve

    This shouldn't be anyone's first plan anyway.

    We've noticed a lot of people sharing information and misinformation about AAA's "Tipsy Tow" program on social media leading up to New Year's Eve, so we thought we'd do our part to clear things up. They'll tow you and your car home for free, but it's not available everywhere. Here's how to find out if it's available in your area.

  9. We Might Not Need Chemistry-Inspired Glassware, But We Sure Do Want Chemistry-Inspired Glassware

    You can just order beakers from a laboratory supply store and drink from those, but these are classier.

    Remember in high school chemistry class when your teacher repeatedly stressed in no uncertain terms that you shouldn't drink from the beakers, but how you really, really wanted to? Well now you can! Or at least that's what designer Marshall Jamshidi is hoping to make happen. He has a Kickstarter up for his set of scientifically inspired glassware called Periodic TableWare, and we now pine for it -- or whatever the scientific version of pining for something is.

  10. If You Drink and Drive in Minneapolis or St. Paul Your Name Will End Up on Twitter

    We all know the usual consequences of drinking and driving (see: Death), but the Department of Public Safety in the cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul wants to add another one -- shame. They're stepping up enforcement of drunk driving laws this weekend, and they'll be tweeting out the names of all the people they arrest for driving while intoxicated.

  11. Japanese Pub Serves Sixth-Graders Alcohol, Turns Out That’s Also Illegal In Japan

    Other countries have varying laws when it comes drinking ages, but I think most places agree that sixth-grade is a little young to get served in a bar. That didn't stop a pub in Yokohama City, Japan from serving a group of children alcohol. Despite legal action, the bar seems pretty blasé about the whole thing, with staff saying, "We kind of knew they were kids, but didn't bother checking their IDs."

  12. Don’t Use Oculus Rift Drunk, Says Designer Who’s Missing the Point of Oculus Rift Entirely

    It's come to our attention that, in an interview with Joystiq, developer Palmer Luckey tried to dissuade customers from using the Oculus Rift gaming helmet while drunk. This means I have another question for Luckey: If I can't use this thing once I've got a couple of cold ones in me, then why, exactly, would I purchase one?

  13. Nanocapsule Sobers Up Mice In Record Time, Could Lead To Pills That Stop Your Drunk Cold

    Have you ever gotten that kind of drunk where all you can do is watch the room spin and wish you weren't so drunk? It's alright -- most of us have been there. But UCLA researchers may have come up with a new method of sobering up quickly -- a nanocapsule full of enzymes that help digest alcohol. It's been shown to be a promising treatment to alleviate drunkenness in mice, and could one day mean a pill that sobers you up before the hangover sets in, or at least before you start saying unpleasant things about the bouncer's mom.

    Do you like beer? Do you like letting the Internet know every time you have a beer?

The app is free for Android and iOS, but they rolled out a premium version yesterday with some new features. Guess I'm hitting the liquor store on the way home tonight.

  16. Who’s Up for a Field Trip to the World’s Geekiest Bar?

    Just What You've Always Wanted

    OK, I'm not much of one for bars, but I'd have a drink here in a second. This is Paris' Dernier Bar Avant La Fin Du Monde, or "Last Bar Before the End of the World," and it's the geekiest bar there is. Geekier even than Brookyn's The Way Station, and they have a TARDIS bathroom! GeekMom has an in-depth writeup of the bar's many geeky aspects, and it kinda makes me want to hop on a plane to Paris right now. Who's with me?

  17. Be Our Guest! Magic Kingdom To Start Serving Wine and Beer

    Highly Successful Marketing Strategies

    (EDITORIAL CORRECTION: Though our original source said Disneyland, we did a bit of confused post-pub checking, and it turns out the expansion is coming to DisneyWorld, not Disneyland. Sorry, California.) Fantasyland is about to get wilder…in the most mild of ways. When Disneyland sees an expansion in the Fantasyland section of their park this fall, a new Beauty & The Beast-themed restaurant (titled, what else, Be Our Guest) will have beer and wine offered on their dinner menu. The licensing of the restaurant will be a big break with longstanding tradition upheld by the late Walt Disney himself. Broken long ago elsewhere in the park, the Magic Kingdom area has been a holdout that harks back to a time when Walt moved his DisneyWorld plans from St. Louis to Orlando because the city insisted on serving beer. According to the Disney blog, there's a concern that opening a new section of the park to alcohol could result in cases of obvious drunkenness, and lead to bad word of mouth due to the presence of "drunken louts". Hey! As a lout, I take offense to that!

  18. Drink Mixing Typewriter Lets You Drink Your Words

    Morskoiboy over at Morskoiboy.com has created an absolutely wonderous device I never knew I needed until I saw it in action: A typewriter that mixes drinks. That's right, this typewriter, instead of writing letters on paper, essentially writes letters in a glass. Through a crazy series of tubes, pumps and syringes (a detailed explanation of which you can find at his site) the user can press letter "keys" which will dispense liquid into the receptacle glass. The result is a cocktail with a word or a sentence for a recipe.

    I'll refrain from making a joke about eating your words, but really, how amazing of an idea is this? Of course, given that so many ingredients are used in such small amounts (unless you tweak letters to have the same liquid) chances are you'll get a mix that is pretty weird and either unremarkable or undrinkable. Still, how incredible must it be to suggest that someone try your favorite drink and be able to tell them the recipe is "mouse twinkies." I want this immediately.
