Howdy from Oklahoma...

(I'm new to this forum, but not to 'puters.)

I saw this pic on the "net"...

It was new to me, & I had a good laugh over it. I hope you enjoy it, too..!

It's interesting that the squirrel figured out how to drink from a straw.



I've never tried drinking beer using a straw, but I have heard that it foams up the beer,...
causing the alcohol to supposedly be absorbed more quickly, so you allegedly get a buzz more quickly.

Anyone out there an expert on the "drinking beer with a straw" subject?

cheers..! wildwillie :)

Hello wildlife. I figured I'd test this theory. I first drank 16 neers right from the bottle. Then I drank the same thru a straw. In both cases I forgot to look at the clock when I was drunk. I can see where this is going to require a lot more tests and beer. :hysterical:

Anyway according to "Mythbusters" it doesn't have any significant effect.

According to Dr. Tenenbein, the onset of intoxication resulting from drinking beer with a straw - as opposed to drinking from the glass - is virtually the same. Theoretically, drinking alcohol from a glass is a faster route to souse-ville, since beer is travelling to the stomach more quickly. Though again, neither the drinker nor his buddies will notice any real difference here.

ha ha... boopme,

I like your post.. :thumbsup:

After 32 beers, I'm surprised you were still able to "kinda type"...

But, I think I'll take Mythbusters word for it...

...or maybe someone should ask the squirrel..? :lol:

cheers.. wildwillie
