I thought the headline said, "grant monkey to drink beer" and got all excited.

Then, high-speed photographs showed that the bubbles grew in volume as they floated to the surface, capturing and transporting additional dissolved gas to the air above the drink

Sure some of that is due to reduced head pressure from the column of liquid above the bubblet causing it to expand as it ascends the column.

ACS dues go to getting everyone drunk at the national meetings.

/and to flying me out for two days before the meeting starts so I can play improv games
//and that one time in Indianapolis when I got to see the opening keynote because Alan Alda was telling everyone how cool I was

Most grants involve some level of beer.

If you're counting bubbles, you're not drinking your beer fast enough.
The answer is 1.

Not exactly new.  I knew dozens of people in college that blew their grants on beer, Also, they were ahead of the curve, as they spent probably just us much on weed.

The effect of carbonation in the use of a rudimentary beer-bong.

My worst hostel experience was in Boston at an ACS meeting. Midsummer heatwave, AC broken, everyone was plastered, total nightmare. Better living through chemistry indeed.

Jeez, they need a scientific report on this?
There are literally millions of drunks out there that know. Just ask them

.....all the bubbles are in the beer, else they wouldn't be bubbles anymore.

/duh

They had to count them all

So that's where Drew has been lately.

If an article like this excites even one person to become a chemist, it is worth the grant money.

It's not just the ACS meetings that provide copious refreshments.  In Canada we have Inorganic Drinking Weekends.

I had a buddy in university who got a grant to study the effect of marbling on steaks. I hated, and envied him.

Waste of money. And people really wonder why science is in such a sorry and pathetic state

Because people like you keep electing assholes who refuse to invest in it?

Heard a story years ago about some ice hockey fans up here in Canuckistan who got a government grant to study why fans get excited at hockey games.  The grant covered season tickets, beer and food at each game, plus transportation.  In the end, they wrote their papers and had the government pay for the whole thing.

I wish that I had thought of that!
