I was single a few years back and went to a college party or two (my upstairs neighbors were pretty cool college guys).

These parties were almost devoid of alcohol, despite them being of age to buy alcohol.

Some of the tamest college parties I've seen in my life, ever. -and these guys and a group of girls they knew were known as the party animals on campus.

My life was like "Old School" for a few years there. I even taught them drinking games. What I found weirdest is that I had to teach them not only *how* to tap the keg and keep it cool (caught one of them pouring the water out from the half melted ice), but how to pour beer from it without getting a cup full of foam.

I guess it's probably not that big a deal as someone had to teach me those things once too or I figured it out on my own, but you'd *think* it would have come up from a previous party at some point and not from their older neighbor who was long since out of school. -these guys were seniors and grad students mostly.

FTA:each year since 1966, only 33 percent of college freshman reported drinking beer in 2012, down from 35.4 percent in 2011 and far lower than the 73.7 percent who were knocking back drinks in 1982

Ummmm....wasn't the drinking age 18 in 1982? So yah, there was no stigma associated with it thus more honest reporting.

meat0918: Colleges and college towns cracked down and cracked down hard in the mid 90's. It's harder to get alcohol as a freshman if there are not as many older students willing to break the law to get you booze.

It's not surprising.


No no no. Kids today are always worse than when I was kid. As told by everyone since the beginning of time.

That is about as reliable as those high school surveys about sex that reveal every single guy is participating in orgies every night while every single girl is still a virgin.

Oh man we used to love those surveys.

We now have a culture of lying.
Why is a suprise in the wind?

In general, you're always better off lying about your alcohol consumption.

And this is coming from a guy who never drinks beer at all. I swear!
