I thought the big hole in the top of the can was the straw holder!

QUESTION & ANSWER
10/12/2001
Drinking beer with a straw.

Question: Mainly out of curiosity I would like to know if one really gets drunk faster when you drink beer with a straw? If this is really the case, does this have a bigger impact on the drinker’s health?
J.S.

Answer: Persons who drink beer with a straw are possibly already drunk, obiter dictum. It is indeed correct that when you drink beer with a straw you get drunk faster compared to when you drink beer in a regular way. When creating a vacuum while sucking on the straw, the boiling point of alcohol drops (in normal circumstances 79 degrees Centigrade) and alcohol vapours are created in the straw. These vapours are inhaled in the lungs, and via that way the alcohol gets into the blood much faster than the alcohol that ends up in the stomach by drinking it the normal way.
Moreover, beer gets into the mouth by means of a straw in very narrow jets, as a result of which it has a larger surface in the oral cavity. As a result of this more alcohol can evaporate before it is swallowed. The palate (with a loot of blood circulation inside) already absorbs part of the alcohol vapours. Also this is a shorter way for the alcohol to get into the blood and to make you drunk faster.
When drinking the same amount of beer the effects on one’s health remain the same whether you drink the beer in a normal way or with a straw, provided that one gets drunk faster when drinking with a straw. The total amount of alcohol does not change.

Wow, that was cool.
I knew the toothpaste, pipe cleaner, and power cord knot.
Thanks for the rest!

No one drank beer out of a straw? Really? Reduces the amount of air you ingest and adds to the effect.

Great episode of Cheers where the group has a séance and have to sit around holding hands. Norm puts a straw in his beer and drinks that way. At the end of the séance, someone asks if they learned anything. As Norm stands up, he professes, "Wow... from now on I'm only drinking beer out of a straw!" (or something like that)

I chipped a tooth at spring break when I was in college, had to drink out of a straw the last day I was there. The cold hurt my tooth too much, I didnt get drunk any faster, I think

Remember this from a while back. Used it and was amazed at how much easier it was:
