A new study on drinking Red Bull with alcohol finds that.....you're still just as drunk! You just don't feel like it!
Well, duh. Obviously if we'd discovered a substance that makes you sober up to the point that your BAC slips back below 0.08, it'd be all over the place.
Since I am party to this trend, a few observations:
• I kinda like the taste of Red Bull, so every once and awhile I'll get one for that reason
• I'll get Red Bull/vodka when I go out if I'm really tired (and don't tell me I should just stay home in that case -- that's just silly sensical thinking)
• No one I know drinks RB/V and believes this makes their BAC go down and therefore enables them to drive home. Really, people, you'd have to be pretty stupid to believe that.
• Also, RB/V is a very expensive mixed drink (usually $3 more than standard vodka tonic)
Why do you need a study when you've got me, huh?
