(2006-08-02) Drinking vertically….

Posted by Jorge on 2006-08-02


Come Again…..??

Yes, you are reading it right! Drinking vertically. Don’t you know what it is? Well, I did not either until I read about it on the newspaper.

That same newspaper reported that the police in the british town called Preston wants to forbid people drinking vertically or in normal language "drinking while standing". According to the police it should be forbidden to drink while you are standing in a bar. Now here it comes…

The reasons if you drink while standing:

  1. you will fall harder and faster if you drink to much compared to drinking while seated.
  2. you are able to drink more because the drinks will slide faster and better into your stomach
  3. chances are higher if you knock somebody else’s drink out of his/her hands and because of that a fight my start

 

Summary:

People that drink while seated will not fight that easily, so everyone should be seated while drinking. This should come into force next autumn/fall (depending if you are british or american ;-)) )

 

So all you british dudes…. sit down, shut up and have a beer. The rest of you have fun and have a beer. ;-))

 

What’s next? Taking a piss horizontally because its to damn easy to do it standing?

I understand the problem (drunks, violence, etc.), but do you think this really is a solution to that problem? What do you think?

  1. I personally don't like drinking vertically anyway. It’s not what I’d call ‘least administrative effort’. I think I’ll stop dreaming about a bartender career too. I don’t see bartenders sitting down at their side of the bar, so they can forget about drinking during working hours, which would be the most important reason to become a bartender. (Yes, I’m Dutch)
