About the Wive's Tale...I agree, Mr. CatWhen I was in high school, word was that drinking beer through a straw would get you drunk faster off the same amount. Was supposed to be something about aeration or something. Old wife's tale, I think.
Poor guy. Asking for a beer and a straw when out drinking...My roommate chipped his front tooth and had to drink beer from a straw until he could get it worked on because of the pain anything touching his tooth caused. He got used to it and says he could do it today but it's just not the same.
my neighbor turned good friend had a brain tumor removed in '91 and one of the side effects is that he has minimal muscle control on the left side of his face: eye lid won't stay closed, mouth can't seal on a wide glass. he can only drink from a bottle or straw.. lest he dribble all over the place. he gets weird looks let me tell you.
I thought the alternative was bringing in a few airplane bottles of booze and dumping them into your drink.I have drank beer out of a straw once. It was at an amusement park that you couldn't bring in anything so walking around with a can or bottle would not work. I managed to stash a few cans in my backpack though and just got a cup with a lid and straw. Noone thought twice about it. It really wasn't that good but it was better than the alternative.
This too.I have drank so much beer through a straw it's ridiculous.. of course it had a funnel attached, and most people call it a beer bong . but hey live in the moment ...
p.s. they make some damn fine dentures now a day
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080312031917AAjHVdzI asked my dentist, who is very critical about red wine and coffe staing teeth, about drinking darker beers. He said pretty much drink as much as you, want, it's not acidic enough to damage teeth. Hmmmm....
Anything below 4.5 isn't good for the teeth. I think your dentist was wrong, maybe.The pH of beer ranges from 3·7 - 4·1 depending upon the brand. And for any beer brand, the pH should not vary by more than ± 0·15 units.
