NCBI ROFL: Naturalistic observations of beer drinking among college students.

By ncbi rofl | January 5, 2012 6:49 pm

“We observed the beer drinking behavior of 308 university students in several bar and party settings. The following relationships were found: males drinking beer in bars consumed 0.92 oz per min; females drank less beer than males, and stayed in a bar for a longer time period; patrons drank significantly more beer when drinking in groups and when purchasing beer in pitchers versus cups or bottles; and intervals between party arrival and first drink and between party departure and last drink varied inversely with blood alcohol concentration. We discuss these findings with regard to developing interventions to prevent alcohol-impaired driving.”

    I’m waiting for David Attenborough to narrate the documentary about this.

    Don’t forget that the number of students in any given bar is directly proportional to the night on which they serve two dollar pints.
