Aw, universities. Engaging undergraduates by bringing beer into the laboratory. No, not hiding six-packs in the walk-in lab fridge (that's for graduate students), but using Budweiser as a buffer for agarose gel electrophoresis! It works because it contains lots of anions and is subject to at least some quality standards, although there are many drawbacks, such as wasting perfectly good beer on science. And I imagine the apparatus is pretty gross afterwards. Although cleaning up lab stuff is what undergrads are for!
Loud music apparently makes people drink more beer, and drink it faster. Because there's not much else to do when conversation is impossible.
Alternative title: Stuff you already knew about drinking beer, except maybe that bit about guys typically consuming 0.92 ounces of beer per minute at a bar which doesn't sound like a lot. Pussies.
Hey there all of you underage A Good Poop readers! Medical science says that if you want to obtain alcohol, make sure you approach a man who looks like he just turned the legal age, preferably in an urban area.
Thanks for very interesting article. btw. I really enjoyed reading this article
Using Bud for experiments? Its certainly better than drinking the stuff..
I was gonna say... the words "Budweiser" and "perfectly good beer" do not belong together.
Hey, Bud's pretty good...as slug bait! Also, if you're calling Bud 'beer', I want to see some proof.
People, people. When I said perfectly good beer, I meant beer in general. I'm Canadian, so obviously Bud is off the table as far as good beer goes.
I wouldnt call Bud a beer. Its like calling hostess cupcakes pastries...or calling the mcdonald burgers real food.
Quite a stretch my friend.
Naturalistic Observations: "Although these results are instructive, more field research is clearly needed."
Hah! I should say so. Clearly. Clearly needed.
I think this case report has its place here:
4-week headache after 60 pints of beer

Bud! haha! my Canadian beer squishes your little head!
"4-week headache after 60 pints of beer"
Perhaps that's what is wrong with my smell (i.e. wife!
For those argueing over if budwieser is good beer or not, the simple fact is that is has alcohol and it will get you drunk, if you are an undergrad, the key word is cheap. there are only a few who care about taste at age 18. Next is that these are interesting issues i have noticed myself i am glad someone else is thinking the same thing and writing papers on them.
