Speaking Of Regrets and Alcohol

Posted by on December 28 at 9:06 AM

I regret not getting on the podcast bandwagon until a few days ago, because podcasts are (with apologies for being so late to this realization) fucking cool. One of the podcasts I’m now signed up for comes from NPR, which sends me a daily podcast of whatever the NPR editors decide was the best story from the previous day—the one that I didn’t know I couldn’t live without.

Today it’s Susan Orlean talking about being crafty. And yesterday, it was a story that will surely inspire regret on the part of many thirsty Stranger readers:

A researcher at Cornell University has found that even when bartenders are told to be very careful, they pour about 30 percent more alcohol into a tumbler-sized glass than a highball-sized glass. The result can mean people have more to drink than they think they’re getting.

I regret, on behalf of all of you, the you didn’t ask for more drinks in tumblers this year.

Aw dog and you call yourself a journalist?

Forget the monorail, how can I get drunk faster and for cheap??

Kidding. Sorta.

Ouch. Sorta.

Eli, I regret making you "kiss me like a real man" last week after one too many tumblers.

I'm sure your date of the evening regrets that as well.

Oh, no ouch intended! Actually I thought this was posted by Josh. And I dare you to kiss *me* like a real man after one too many tumblers sometime. Actually same goes for Josh. And what the hell, Cienna too.
