I Wouldn't Have School Spirit Without A Couple Vodka Waters

Like Ole Miss student Shelby Herring, we never had much school spirit.

But unlike Shelby Herring, we never got our school spirit by day drinking and then drunkenly blathered on camera, thus becoming the Internet’s newest viral video star. In between answering important questions about what’s a “hotty totty” and her favorite quarterbacks, Miss Herring chugs champagne, drops her mike, and shares bits of gold like, “Ole Miss, we may have lower IQs, I have a higher IQ than most people, no, that’s a lie. We have fun and we don’t ever miss a party!” Um, okay.

She is strangely endearing, if not the model Ole Miss student. And hey, what is Shelby’s friend doing this whole time?! Girl, with your friends start drunkenly blathering on camera, that’s when you pull them away. [AdWeek, Twitter.com/ShelbyClaireH]

The Soapbox: Slate Tells Young Women To “Stop Getting Drunk,” Majorly Misses The Mark On Alcohol & Rape

The Soapbox: Slate Tells Young Women To "Stop Getting Drunk," Majorly Misses The Mark On Alcohol & Rape
Drunk Is A Feminist Issue
Why women should be concerned about binge-drinking. Read More »

Slate.com’s modus operandi is to troll the hell out of everyone. Today’s piece by Dear Prudence author Emily Yoffe, “College Women: Stop Getting Drunk,” is a classic example.

In her piece, Yoffe recounts a statistic from a 2009 study that 80 percent of campus sexual assaults involve alcohol.  She then gives what she thinks is sound personal safety advice for “young and naive women,” but it’s actually a slippery slope to victim blaming:

Perpetrators are the ones responsible for committing their crimes, and they should be brought to justice. But we are failing to let women know that when they render themselves defenseless, terrible things can be done to them. Young women are getting a distorted message that their right to match men drink for drink is a feminist issue. The real feminist message should be that when you lose the ability to be responsible for yourself, you drastically increase the chances that you will attract the kinds of people who, shall we say, don’t have your best interest at heart. That’s not blaming the victim; that’s trying to prevent more victims.

Inadvisable/Ingenious Travel Tip Of The Day: Pack A Party In Your Carry-On

Remembering all the rules for packing liquids in your carry-on and navigating the airport security line is enough to make anyone want a stiff drink. Why not kill two birds with one stone Patrón by filling your 1-quart liquid bag with mini alcohol bottles? Apparently this travel hack will earn you nothing but high-fives from the TSA, but you might run into trouble if you actually try to pop your bottles on the plane — drinking your own booze on flights is illegal. Sad face. Still, if you want to mix yourself a drink in your hotel room without paying mini bar prices or digging through your checked bag, this is totally the way to go. [I Am A Travel Ninja]

One Woman’s Amazing Skin Transformation After Quitting Alcohol For 30 Days

Putting a pause on your alcohol consumption can work wonders for your physical health (and wallet), but what kind of effect can it have on your complexion? Apparently, an incredible one, at least in one woman’s case.

40-year-old Laura Hogarth from Scotland drank around 5 large glasses of wine per week — 15 units, which is one short of the recommended amount for women in accordance to her country’s national guidelines. So, monitored by Dr. Nick Lowe, professor of dermatology, she ceased drinking for one month to see the effects on her skin. The results were rather amazing, as you can see in the Daily Mail’s original piece. Read more at The Gloss…

Research Suggests That More Intelligent People Drink More, And Begin Earlier In Life

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.
