This is consistent with other studies, which have reported that young people in the United Kingdom are particularly likely to drink heavily.

Um, duh.

Hey, they wanted equality, they should be allowed to get as shiatfaced (for yanks:= "drunk") as they want without being singled out for some crappy "report".

Drink up girls, i need you all to wear your beer goggles, its the only chance i got.

Can you say "Easy Lay"?
I knew you could.

"Our study suggests that different trends may be developing in the drinking careers of women and men"

Drinking career? I'd never thought of drinking as a career opportunity. Something worth looking in to.

Preliminary results of the study indicate that the consumption of beer has a lot to do with the girls getting drunk.

Drinking Career, nice work if you can get it
 
2001-11-20 04:17:54 PM  
I like my women sober. I, on the other hand enjoy getting farkfaced

"pub time" last week....
god bless the British

sobriety is highly over-rated.
 
2001-11-20 04:39:39 PM  
Mom always told me "Girls can do anything boys can do." So I do my feminist duty when it comes to drinking. Fight the power.
 
2001-11-20 04:39:43 PM  
I see the odds getting better...

The collective happiness of the male world varies directly with how drunk the female world is. More art, more sexual indiscretion, hail to farking libertinage!

Hail to a trend that promises to reverse the puritanical trend toward sexual repression which our entire generation has endured since the onset of AIDS in the early 80s.

*grabs gallon of milk* Yep, been drinking heavily all right...heheh....
 
2001-11-20 04:53:53 PM  
Huh ha ha huh They said Units.
 
2001-11-20 05:02:55 PM  
Another lesser known study was just completed that found that British men were becoming less attractive.

I think there is a corellation here.
 
2001-11-20 05:15:22 PM  
they look kind of cute to me but im all liquered up
 
2001-11-20 05:29:16 PM  
What exactly is a "unit"? A pint? When I see "unit" I think of something else entirely. Wacky Brits.
 
2001-11-20 05:30:50 PM  
what is a unit of beer?
 
2001-11-20 05:31:11 PM  
candypink is a hottie
 
2001-11-20 05:36:58 PM  
A "unit" is the term introduced when the U.K.'s pubs converted to the metric system. What we'd call a shot is a deciunit, a kegger is a hectounit, and so forth.
 
2001-11-20 05:40:22 PM  
Why do they have to be so different?
 
2001-11-20 06:20:22 PM  
hectounit at my place!
 
2001-11-20 06:21:23 PM  
Geeze. "Give us a unit, gov'ner." It really doesn't have the cachet of "Give us a pint, gov'ner," does it?

By the way, we yanks use the term "s**tfaced" as well. The term most yanks wouldn't know is "on the job".
 
2001-11-20 06:23:30 PM  
By the way, fellow yanks, "on the job" is NOT about being drunk (although what it applies to could follow from heavy female drinking).
 
2001-11-20 06:26:32 PM  
Tioloco: lol!

My college gives out 12 free condoms every two weeks to whoever stops by the health center. That's 48 a month (for those of you who are slow, 24 for me and 24 for the girl). Now to put them to good use...
 
2001-11-20 06:42:58 PM  
Like some Whiskey little girl?
 
2001-11-20 06:43:58 PM  
48... for 30 days... somehow that does not seem like enough... or perhaps college kids these days aren't as porking each other as often as they were when I was in college.

I'm a fan of "three sheets to the wind", although I think that might be Scottish...

Either way, I personally enjoy being drunk. In fact, most of my female friends also enjoy getting smashed.

Either this study is stupid, or British girls are stupid.
 
2001-11-20 06:54:39 PM  
Chach rocks for thinking I'm a hottie.
 
2001-11-20 07:00:28 PM  
Geez, Code_Archeologist, give me a break. It's expensive to liquor her up 48 times a month. 5 bucks a cup times 30 nights equals more money than I have (that's why I use free condoms).
 
2001-11-20 07:12:38 PM  
hey wemon want to get paid like men, jobs like men, and be treated like men, well they better learn to drink like men. cause there is no way that I am going to start drinking less to make wemon feel like they are acting like men.
 
2001-11-20 07:16:53 PM  
Well, drunkeness is not very ladylike.
(Arrrgggg! The flaming! It burns!)


A great, roaring sing-along song:

Hmmm... I guess you don't have a place near your campus like I did that had nickle beers during happy hour. $1 equals a whole shiat load of beer goggling
 
2001-11-20 08:23:29 PM  
When I registered for the National Health Service in jolly old England, I got asked multiple times: "How many pints a week, then?" I guess it's just customary for the Brits, but I've never heard that from an American doctor in a first checkup.
 
2001-11-20 08:24:06 PM  
This study makes me so happy - I'm gonna run out and get a tattoo saying "I Luv Beer".

I think that'd really get the fellas excited.

That's the best news I've heard all day!
I want to my doctor today for some back pain, and I mentioned I've been stressed lately. He said some wine every day was OK to calm my nerves!
THANK GOD.
 
2001-11-21 02:25:30 AM  
Did I just say thank GOD?
Must be the wine.
Well....GOOD FOR ME!

Nanook, good to see another Flanders and Swann fan.

I demand the right to drink myself stupid whenever necessary, to wake up feeling like something died in my mouth, to snog something that looks the next morning like the arse end of a wildebeest, and all the other privileges of female heavy drinking.

Recently went out and got horrifyingly hammered. Headed home on the beer scooter (ie got on the tube and then the next thing I knew was walking along my street, having completely not noticed the intervening 40min tube journey). Was thinking 'mmm want food, maybe I'll order Chinese'. Got to my door and there was a man standing there who said my name. I said, 'yeees?' & in return he handed me a bag, announcing 'chicken chow mein and spring rolls'. I have *no* memory at all of ordering any such food, my body clearly just took over while my brain was elsewhere. bit of a result really.

So Londongirl....
When are the Brit farkers going to get their act together and host a Limey Farkfest?

Flowerdale: Good to see another perpetual reader of everything.
