Speaking Of Regrets and Alcohol
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.
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.
