Boggle Your Mind Before New Year's With These Drinking Facts
One must always know about whom they love, and who do we love more than alcohol? That’s right. Facts about alcohol. Casually let one of these slip and find your date being highly impressed with your drinking knowledge.
Fair Warning: This might wipe off their high because it guarantees mind boggling
Fact #1: Vodka’s are made of potato
Drinking 4 bottle's of vodka means they’re consuming fermented potato by the kilos. In all honesty, Honey Singh is really promoting vegetarianism and good eating habits.
Fact #2: South Korea consumes more alcohol than anyone in the world
You might think it’s Ireland or Britain or even Russia but it’s our humble Asian neighbour South Korea that walks away the crown for being the country that consumes the most amount of alcohol, according to a 2011 World Health Organisation study.
Fact #3: It is considered an offense to feed alcoholic beverages to a moose in Alaska, US
Yep. This is an actually legitimate law. Too bad, drunk moose sound like really fun people to hang out with.
Fact #4: You also can’t give it to fishes in Ohio, US
This supposed law probably stemmed from a misreading of anti-pollution laws for Lake Erie and the Cuyahoga River.
Fact #5: Bars in Nebraska, US can’t serve beer unless they are also cooking up a pot of soup
This is a really real law to promote eating while drinking alcohol. Keeping a tab on how many pots of soups are being cooked per table is a job we’d like to pass on.
Fact #6: A minor can consume alcohol in Cuba
Wish you knew that when you were younger but a whole lot of countries like Cuba, Morocco, Vietnam, Jamaica, etc have no legal drinking age.
Fact #7: Maharashtra has the highest legal drinking age in the world
With 21 being the legal drinking age in many counties, Maharashtra takes away the cake with upping it to 25 in 2011.
Fact #8: Vikings drank from their enemy’s skulls
Vikings are known to love alcohol but their victory toast was rarely from a functioning mug, they used the skulls of the enemies they slayed.
Fact #9: In early Egypt, “bread and beer” was a legit greeting
It’s something that still holds relevance because what is a better greeting than “I have Pizza and Beer.” Lets bring back the old times.
Fact #10: The Bourbon is United States’ Official Spirit
As ruled by the governing party.
Fact #11 The states of Gujarat, Manipur, Mizoram and Nagaland are known as ‘dry states’
If you’re planning on a trip to these places, make sure to get your drinking license!
Fact #12: Theoretically, you can survive on alcohol
Perhaps the best fact being that 13 of the most essential mineral required for humans are found in alcohol.
So there is it! Do you know of some fun facts? Leave them in the comments below!
