MIX­ING EN­ERGY DRINKS AND VODKA COULD SEND YOU DOWN A VI­O­LENT RAB­BIT HOLE BET­TER TO DO WHAT OUR ED­I­TOR DOES: STICK TO WHISKY.

TechLife Australia - - THE WALL -

We’ve all sus­pected that drink­ing on our nights out makes us a tad stupid, but a new joint study from the Uni­ver­sity of Portsmouth and Fed­eral Uni­ver­sity of Santa Maria in Brazil says that when al­co­hol and en­ergy drinks — like Red Bull — are mixed, it in­creases the risk of vi­o­lence. How­ever, the ex­per­i­ments were con­ducted on ze­brafish, so this study doesn’t con­clu­sively state that it will have the same ef­fect on hu­mans. But we don’t need sci­ence to tell us what has al­ready been ev­i­dent in real life — cow­ard punches, ver­bal abuse, and ev­ery other stupid be­hav­iour as­so­ci­ated with heavy drink­ing is dumb. And in any case, why would you want to drink Red Bull and vodka when you’re out for night? There are plenty of bet­ter ways to en­joy your night out, in mod­er­a­tion.
