Science is full of surprises, that much is true, but I can’t say that this would be one of them. The latest installment in an ongoing series of studies continues to offer increasing evidence suggesting that more intelligent children, who develop language and intellectual skills earlier than others, are more likely to drink and take drugs than their less intelligent peers.

There’s been a Lohan arrested and it isn’t Lindsay or papa Michael! Sadly, the arrest is still all too predictable: party-hardy momager Dina Lohan got busted for a DWI in Oyster Bay, Long Island, last night. The 50-year-old former Rockette was pulled over in her BMW for driving 77mph in a 55mph zone and turned out to be drunk. Over twice the legal limit! After complaining about being injured during the arrest, Dina took this bleary-looking mug shot and was eventually picked up at jail by someone — not Lindsay. who supposedly only found out about the arrest this morning.

There are few situations when people are more quintessentially their sign than when they’ve had a few drinks. Inhibitions are gone, walls come down, restraint and shyness melt away, and suddenly we’re all just being us. And when you’re just being you, well, usually your sign becomes pretty obvious. So let’s talk about spotting each sign at a bar or cocktail party, shall we? Want to know which sign is taking a pantsless nap and which sign is professing their love to strangers? Read on to find out!

To be drunk and to find yourself perusing the latest in helicopter camera drone technology is to be human. To actually purchase said helicopter camera drone technology off of Amazon.com is an entirely different thing.
And yet! We’ve done it. Or we know someone who’s done it, anyway. Drunk shopping is rarely a good idea, but that’s never stopped us from brazenly logging on to UrbanOutfitters.com, our credit card numbers memorized, with a hankering for crop tops. The Frisky staff divulged their most embarrassing drunk purchases, and polled friends and family on their biggest drunk splurges. (You can see a larger version of our most embarrassing purchases here.)
Here’s what we found: Keep reading »
Joaquín Alcaraz Gracia had just been crowned “King of Beer Drinking” in a chugging contest in Spain when he started vomiting nonstop. The goal of the contest is to drink as many liters of beer as possible in 20 minutes and Garcia drank six liters, breaking the contest record. The poor guy was coherent for long enough to hold up his trophy in glory, but his condition deteriorated quickly, reported the UK’s Daily Mail.

Okay, now I’m really not sure if alcohol is good for me or bad for me. According to Daily Mail, The North Hampshire Hospital in Basingstoke, England, has applied for an alcohol license serve wine and beer to patients in a private wing. A nurse will literally bring you a beer as you lay sickly in your hospital bed.
Both wine and beer would be made available from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Both patients and visitors would be able to consume alcohol, and NHS has made it clear that drinking more than is healthy will not be encouraged.
Naturally, there are plenty who are critical of a hospital serving alcohol. It sends a lot of mixed messages to people about the health consequences of alcohol consumption if a hospital serves it to its patients. The hospital has assured such critics that alcohol will only be served to patients if it is medically safe and appropriate, but serving alcohol certainly makes NHS seem more like a business trying to make a profit than a hospital trying to improve the health of its patients.[Daily Mail]

This may be a big week for ga -rights activists, America, and, like, history. But it’s also a big week for all us chocolate peanut butter lovers out there. That’s right, Sweet Baby Jesus Chocolate Peanut Butter Porter has descended from the heavens (or Abington, Maryland) and graced us with its sweet, sudsy presence. For a measly $10 at DuClaw Brewing, you can get buzzed on the chocolately-peanut-buttery libation that actually tastes and smells like a chocolate peanut cup, according to Uncrate. No word on where else in the States it’s hopping (heh) up next, but sweet baby Jesus, we hope it’s in ours. [Uncrate]
You would think an open bar at a wedding would be the perfect way to liven up the crowd and get everyone’s dancing shoes movin’, but not for this unfortunate bride. One of her guests was bathing in booze. In this video, a red-dressed beauty gets bombed and a bit too comfortable with her makeshift pole. I have a feeling that the bride hasn’t spoken to her since the big day. [via YouTube]
Update: It’s been brought to our attention that this video was made as part of Heineken’s Know The Signs campaign.
In 2004, people figured out that if you smoke alcohol, you can get drunk almost immediately without any of the empty calories associated with that old-fashioned liquid alcohol. A product called AWOL (Alcohol Without Liquid) was quickly banned in the U.S. because inhaling alcohol straight into the bloodstream is super dangerous. But now inhaling alcohol has resurfaced with a new sketchy product that’s being sold legally in all 50 states. The Vaportini, which is sold online, gets you schwasted immediately upon inhalation.
