Lines on the red “solo” cups are intended for measuring alcohol.
Lets start off this top ten alcohol myth list one that I hear at every party. Now, the lines do make it convenient being that the bottom line is about 1oz, the middle line is about 5oz, and the top one being about 12oz, unfortunately the this myth was debunked by the company. Don’t worry though, that wont stop us from using them how we please! Here is the picture put out by the Solo company on the matter.
One beer, one glass of wine, or one shot?
So here is a question. Out of these three drinks, which one will get you more buzzed? Go ahead, take a guess ill wait…done then? Good, because the answer is all three! Yup, that’s right a 12oz beer, 4oz glass of wine and a 1oz shot all have around the same intoxicating power. Hence why we here at Vodkaforbreakfast prefer shooters over shots…
Cure your hangover by drinking more!
This one may seem like common sense, but I still hear it way too often. Now, we here at vodkaforbreakfast love a good mimosa in the morning, but the fact is, if you just keep drinking your just delaying the inevitable hang over. Being that staying constantly drunk for the rest of you life isn’t an option for most people, just try water and maybe an aspirin.
Need to sober up? Drink coffee!
This myth was widely spread by Hollywood. You see it in movies all the time, someone needs to do something in 10 minuets? Give them coffee and sober them up! Well, the fact is that alcohol dissipates from the body at about .015% BAC an hour. So coffee may give you energy, but all you can do is wait.
Got pulled over? Suck on some pennies!
No one wants drunk drivers on the road, but occasionally we find ourselves driving home from a party where we have overindulged just a little. Unfortunately, copper is not magical, and there is less than 2% copper in pennys nowadays anyway. even things like mints, batteries, and smoking may cover the odor of alcohol, they don’t effect your alcohol blood content. best solution? just be the life of the party and no one will want you to leave!
Alcohol kills brain cells.
Studies have shown that when it comes to the life cycle of brain cells, alcohol has no effect! Be warned because even though the act of drinking may not damage brain cells, breaking a glass bottle over your head for $10 definitely will. So, maybe don’t do that? Also, bonus fact, reading blogs on vodakforbreakfast increases brain cell groth by 1000%! True fact, google it.
Liquor before beer…
That’s right, everyones favorite saying isn’t as accurate as you may think. Mixing different types of alcohol in any order doesn’t inherently make you any more sick, nor does it make you any more drunk. Now, if you drink several different types of mixers it may make your stomach a bit upset. but still, the order and types have no effect so mix it up people!
Well there you have it, 7 alcohol myths you now know are a load of crap. We here at vodka for breakfast hope you all feel just a little bit smarter today. So go out, impress you friends, and stay buzzed people!
