Salad bowls, subteetotaler. Like a man.

I've noticed that wine bottles are only holding 2 glasses of wine nowadays

What sucks about wine is it's too sweet, you end up with a stomach ache before you drink enough to get shiatfaced.

I've found that drinking directly from the spigot on the box works well for me.

I'm not sure if marketing researchers should be called scientists...but if it makes them feel better about their crimes against mankind sure whatever.

Fark the glass. I'm not trying to impress anyone. I drink it straight out of the bottle like a hobo.

Years ago I won $50 on a bet that involved me slamming 3 bottles of Arbor Mist in under three minutes. I chugged the first two and bonged the third bottle like a champ.

Beer should always be drunk from a glass. I find that large Smuckers peanut butter jars (26 oz) provide a good drinking vessel. They provide plenty of headroom for 12 or 16 oz beers and with care you can fit a 22 oz bottle of beer in.

These jars come with lids to keep the bugs out. They will also hold a full bottle of wine or a 5th of liquor.

Like someone limits themselves to the contents of whatever glass they are using.   We drink until the bottle is gone (and sometimes open another)

That goes for liquor too. A while back I bought a shot glass for $0.99 from Kroger. It it looked slightly bigger than usual -- I'm used to shot glasses that are undersized or have very thick bottoms & sides -- but it didn't look huge. Eventually I wondered why I was getting drunk so fast and measured its capacity: filled to the rim it holds 4.5 ounces, i.e. a triple. Hot diggety.

It's been like that as long as I can remember.

My wine consumption has increased dramatically with the decrease in distance to relatives and increase in BS at work.

And no, "marketing researchers" are NOT scientists.

Impressive but the pledge record is TWO bottles and a Buick LeSabre, brah.

Drink pinot noir. Low sugar, low carb, high alcohol. Beautiful invention.

I bought a box of 4 glasses at Trader Joe's years ago.

26 ounce pour, easy.

One of the best things about this stuff http://www.juniorsmidnightmoon.com/spirits/apple-pie/  - besides the part where it tastes like apple pie, of course - is that it comes in mason jars. Glasses? What are glasses?

This has been known for years upon years. If they looked at existing literature they'd have found that people suck at judging contents of various containers. The wide, low container will be judged to contain less than the high yet narrow container (within certain parameters).

I drink alone, yeah, with nobody else.
You know when I drink alone, I prefer to be by myself....

my sister's living with us at the moment and she used to be a bit sniffy about boozing everyday, staying up late etc etc, so I was a bit apprehensive.

lol. she's got a real job now and they're under insane pressure at work. the amount of wine she gets through! it makes me look sensible

You pour it out of the bottle?

Which gave rise to the sham glass that is so popular in bars
