In the grand scheme of things, social media is pretty great by most accounts. It's changed the face of the Internet. Drinking is also pretty great. It formed the shape of the world.

Budweiser's "Büddy Cup" aims to help you make friends not just by getting drunk, but by Facebook-friending you and your cohorts at the clink(?) of a cup. All you do is load up your profile and then touch your mouth-surface together with strangers' mouth-surfaces like there's no tomorrow. It's certainly...an idea. But would you ever do it? Is this as ill-advised as it seems, or does maybe just maybe make a secret kind of sense? [CNET]
