From the annals of "I didn't need science to tell me that was true" we have yet another experiment undertaken purely because scientists like drinking games. To understand the true meaning of Beer Pong, a group of researchers substituted water for beer (which seems to me to undermine the integrity of the experimental conditions but oh well) and monitored how much research subjects drank of the water while playing what I guess would be called Water Pong. Using a computer simulation, they determined how much alcohol the subjects would have consumed, and how drunk they would be. The results? Seriously drunk, especially due to the rapidity of consumption.
