Since the days of Alexander the Great, binge drinking has been a very popular past time - leading to him apparently killing a friend and burning down Persepolis while drunk.
Those are some Great shoes to fill.
Yet, governments, schools and the media have repeatedly tried to teach us of binge drinking's dangers.
Dartmouth University has taken the lead, instigating a new nationwide policy to curb heavy drinking by their students.
Pour me another glass.
Binge drinking is defined as "the consumption of five or more drinks in a row by men — or four or more drinks in a row by women — at least once in the previous 2 weeks. Heavy binge drinking includes three or more such episodes in 2 weeks."
Seems I don't know anyone who isn't a heavy binge drinker.
Do you think this definition should be changed or should we change people's attitudes? Or should you follow HPD's no fools guide to drinking a lot but not dying?
