Everyone knows that drinking can make people do crazy things. But one new survey shows a surprising correlation between what types of alcohol people drink — and what they wind up wishing they hadn’t done later.

Researchers from Addictions.com surveyed 2,000 people to gain a little more insight on just how much of a turn a night out can take. Their findings backed up a few long-held beliefs, and unearthed some surprising insights, like the fact that 120 of the 2,000 admitted to causing a fire while drunk. Or that 66 people admitted to getting a tattoo while drunk.

There are regulations against tattoo artists doing work on people who are noticeably drunk, but that’s not to say that some haven’t done it anyway. (Just ask Demi Lovato.) According to the survey, four out of five people have woken up to find a tattoo on their body after a night of drinking did so after drinking beer.

Beer was also the drink of choice for people who got naked in public while drunk; three out of every four people who did so said they’d been sipping suds when they decided to strip down to their birthday suits. (Vodka came in second, with just over a third of the subjects admitting to waking up naked after drinking the liquor.)

Beer company fills their cans with water for earthquake victims – Mashable

As Mexico recovers from two monster earthquakes that left buildings toppled and hundreds dead, all hands are on deck for recovery. 

The Mexican beer company and Heineken subsidiary Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma is stepping up in a big way. 

After delivering their initial store of canned water that they produce yearly in case of a national emergency, the company announced Wednesday that they would halt beer production at their Orizaba, MX plant.

They will instead use the plant for producing an additional 1 million cans of water for distribution to earthquake victims.

How it works

According to Marco Mascarua, Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma’s vice president of corporate affairs in Mexico, hurricanes frequently hit the country. So anticipating a future need for water in the midst of a natural disaster, three years ago Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma committed to producing and keeping a 70,000-can stock of water in the case of an emergency.

“A couple of years ago we thought about what we could do to help the community,” said Mascarua. “Mexico usually gets hit during the hurricane season. So we thought it was a good idea to have water in stock in different regions.”

The brand ordinarily produces beers like Heineken along with Tecate and Dos Equis at their plants. So to produce water, they needed to make some changes. The company needed approval from Mexico’s government, and they would need to have a facility that could comply with the country’s drinking water standards. They decided to equip their Orizaba, MX plant with the government-approved and permitted infrastructure necessary to produce water. They ran their first pilot of water production and distribution last year. And before the two recent earthquakes hit, had compiled a store of 70,000 cans. 

“A lot of people think that this

Iowa teacher asked to surrender license: 'I struggled with depression and alcohol' – DesMoinesRegister.com

A former math teacher at a rural Iowa high school accused of being intoxicated at work has been asked to surrender his teaching license.

Chad Ahlers, 46, had a blood alcohol level above .08 while working at Algona High School on May 8, according to Iowa Board of Educational Examiners documents. 

He resigned the same day. He had been an Algona schools teacher for more than 20 years. 

“I struggled with depression and alcohol consumption for a long time,” Ahlers told The Des Moines Register. “School administrators were very supportive of me over the years in allowing me to get help.

“I had a really bad weekend in May, and it was noticeable when I got to work Monday morning. We decided it was best that I move on from the teaching profession at that time.”

Ahlers may be among the first teachers reported to the state licensing agency after a law change that requires districts to notify the state when educators are disciplined for being intoxicated at school.

Prior to the March change, school districts could choose whether or not to report drinking offenses. Even teachers fired for being drunk on the job were not necessarily reported to the state board to have their licenses reviewed.

Legislation to close the loophole won bipartisan support after it came to light in 2015 when The Des Moines Register wrote about an Ankeny teacher whose blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit. The Ankeny school district did not immediately report the incident to the state licensing agency. 

In the Algona teacher’s case, the state licensing board received a complaint on May 12, four days after the incident. In August, the board found probable cause to proceed with a hearing.
