Beer Pong, Pong, Beirut. Just a few names for that ever-popular drinking game consisting of plastic Solo cups, beer, and pong balls. Anyone who has ever played will inform you that the point of the game is not only to win but to increase your overall level of intoxication, as well. Due to the level of popularity among young adults, Nintendo are releasing a new game for Wii called “Pong Toss.” Everything about the game is the same as the original — you shoot the pong ball at a pyramid of cups and try to eliminate them before your competitor does – the only thing Nintendo left out was the beer. Obviously this is creating controversy. New York psychologist Eva Levine believes that there will be a rise in underage drinking since the game is recommended for ages 13 and up. But then again there hasn’t really been an outrage of car-jackings and pimping since the creation of Grand Theft Auto. Being able to play Wii Pong Toss alone will definitely help you work on your shooting skills for that next party, but you’ll also have to justify how drinking alone while playing Wii isn’t alcoholism.

Beer is a tasty beverage, but I’m not sure I would want to immerse myself in a tub of the stuff. In the Czech Republic, the Chodovar Family Brewery offers just that. The beer is warm, not steaming, and herbs and beer foam float at the surface. Klara, a balneologist (balneology=the science of baths) at the brewery says a beer bath can soothe muscles, warm joints, and heal the complexion. Supposedly, it’s not as sticky as a bar floor, so maybe I would enjoy soaking up some hops. Bubbles are overrated, anyway. [Sydney Morning Herald] Keep reading »
It’s St. Patrick’s Day- the annual drinking holiday! While it might not seem like a good idea to pound back a bunch of green brew, a new study found that beer is the best alcohol for your brain. Just in time for today’s festivities, researchers from Germany’s Göttingen University published their claim that the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory and spatial tasks, is 10% smaller in wine and liquor drinkers than in beer drinkers. The study’s scientists believe that the B vitamins and folate found in lager lowers levels of hymocysteine, which is known to cause heart disease, strokes, and dimentia. So ask your doctor if beer is right for you. Side affects may include puking, flashing, and bad dancing. Cheers! [Dethroner] Keep reading »
