MayoSlather: I wonder if actually lowering the drinking age would help?

Doubt it.  Kids aged 21-25 often have the personality traits that lead to binge drinking.  It will always be part of that culture.
Its not until you hit your 30s-ish until you realize moderation leads to more social fun.

PSA: FYI, kiddos. If you ever get a DUI, you can't step foot in Canada.

The reason people think binge drinking has gotten worse is because they changed the damned definition of binge drinking. In my day binge drinking meant you went on a bender for seven days straight, never sobering up once the whole time.

How big a deal? About as big a deal as binge drinking by non-students.

bronyaur1: I am a college dean. I hear a lot of crapola every single farking day about how college students' drinking more than ever is collapsing the Republic, and how we administrators need to destroy higher ed to make them drink less.


They are fine, and maybe even need to drink more than we did 35 years ago. Leave them the fark alone.

Serious minus points for posting on fark. At my college - that's a firing offense.

Nogale: Binge drinking is defined as "five or more drinks on one occasion"? If I spend five hours with friends, and consume one beer an hour, I've been binge drinking?

Yes, you are OMG BINGE DRINKING!! Unless you're female, in which case 4 drinks is OMG BINGE DRINKING!! So very very many people are OMG BINGE DRINKING. We need more funding to study BINGE DRINKING. More binge drinking=more funding to study binge drinking.

These are the same people who refer to drinking as "using" as in "Do you use alcohol?" or "what is your relationship with alcohol?" They never drink so they think having 5 beers at a tailgate is problem drinking. And they don't see the humor in a staged picture of a kid doing a keg stand.
