I Feel Inspired.

  • Driver Has 18 Times Legal Alcohol Limit
    VILNIUS, Lithuania - Lithuanian police were so astonished when they pulled over a truck driver and his breathalyzer test registered 18 times the legal alcohol limit, they thought their testing device must be broken. It wasn't... Police said Tuesday 41-year-old Vidmantas Sungaila registered 7.27 grams per liter of alcohol in his blood repeatedly on different devices when he was pulled over for driving his truck down the center of a two-lane highway 60 miles from the capital, Vilnius on Saturday... Lithuania's legal limit is 0.4 grams per liter.
  • Wine keeps Hungarian apes feeling fine
    BUDAPEST, Hungary (Reuters) -- Monkeys and apes at the Budapest Zoo drink their way through 55 liters of red wine each year, albeit in small quantities each day, to help boost their red blood cells, the zoo said Monday.
  • Artificial sweeteners speed alcohol into blood
    LOS ANGELES (Reuters Health) - Alcoholic drinks made with artificial sweeteners lead to a high rate of alcohol absorption, resulting in a greater blood alcohol peak and concentration than from drinks made with sugar-based mixers.
  • Women Get Drunk, High and Addicted Easier Than Men
    Snake oil salesmen used to prey on women with their "medicinal" tonics packing 40-proof alcohol. Mick Jagger sang of "mother's little helper"... A woman's addiction to alcohol, pills and other narcotics has long been a wink-wink topic—one that garners a few smirks, rarely taken seriously. The focus has always been on men, who traditionally have had higher rates of substance abuse.
  • Just a few pints with the lasses
    Drinking is up among young British women, and that means trouble... British lads have a well-deserved reputation for imbibing more than their fair share, but now the lasses are giving them a run for their money. Research by Moira Plant, professor of alcohol studies at the University of the West of England in Bristol, suggests British women between 18 and 24 now match and in some cases surpass their male counterparts in alcohol consumption.

I agree -- I think you are worthy of a tenured professorship, perhaps with scholarships awarded in your name.
