Remember the photo of a "drunk" gorilla that went viral a couple of weeks back? The one that punched a photographer and gave the internet an opportunity to make endless jokes about the gorilla uprising? Turns out, the gorilla wasn't actually drunk.

Listen, drinking all night is not healthy. But it's holiday party season, that perfect storm of open bar and all of your colleagues waiting to see who will be this year's obnoxious, puking, passed out and/or dead person at the party.

There's a lot of slang associated with drinking. Three sheets to the wind. Hair of the dog. On the wagon. We all know them, we all use them, but most of us don't know where they came from or what they really mean. Read on, and you'll be the smartest person at the bar.
Poking fun at passed out drunk people is a global thing but Japanese bar chain Yaocho took the joke to a different level. The sleeping drunks were framed inside a square of white tape and turned into a PSA billboard with the hashtag #nomisugi—too drunk—written on it.
Imagine: your wife begins to think you’re a closet alcoholic, so she purchases a breathalyzer to test your blood alcohol content (BAC) throughout the day. Your doctors concur with her assessment, thinking you’re sneaking off into dark corners to imbibe without the judging eyes of the world to condemn you. The only…
In the list of things you probably should never experience in your life, even if you're sozzled to oblivion, dangling upside down from an active power cable is probably near the top.

Anyone who's ever had a couple of drinks knows that as fun as it can be, sometimes it'd be nice if you could just make all that haze go away, right away. There's no solution for your average drunk yet, but researchers at MIT have managed to put together an injection that can turn a party mouse into a stone-cold sober…
Imagine yourself sleeping at 3:00 AM on a Friday night. You probably wanted a little peace and quiet before tomorrow's picnic at the park. You're deep in a dream about running barefoot on the beach when SMAAASSSSSHHHH GUNKDAGUNK BOOOM. A drunk man drives a freaking tank inside your house and destroys it.

The college football championship game is going on right now and since the whole tech world is at CES, ESPN decided to show off their ESPN 3D channel to a bevy of tech savvy sports fans (or is it sports savvy tech fans?).

This is insane driving: A woman hit the median of a freeway, went airborne with her car, had the car roll over four times until she was was ejected from her seat and thrown onto the roof. Somehow, she's alive.
My greatest alcohol-related fear is that in a drunken stupor I'll text my boss and tell him to do all manner of anatomically-impossible things to himself.
"Let me see...I cracked open that first bottle of wine at 8pm, so knowing the way I drink I was probably sozzled by 8.30. That means I need to delete my social updates from 8.30 last night to this morning."
If Nintendo really wants to step away from its do-gooder family-friendly reputation, it should license this DrunkenNES homebrew game, which houses a breathalyzer inside a cartridge. Coming to a Wii near you soon!
Followers of the American Red Cross looking forward to the usual blood drive updates were surprised to find this tweet in their feeds two nights ago. It's not every day the world's largest volunteer services gets "slizzered."
So what happened? Was it a malicious hack to make the ARC seem like a bunch of lushes? Nah.…
Shopping for the highest of high-functioning alcoholics can be a tricky proposition. Novelty bottle openers and 12-packs of Pabst don't cut it. For the the guy (or gal) with a sophisticated drinking problem, these gifts are guaranteed to please.
