College remains the place to hone one’s appreciation of the finer things; reading Voltaire, knowledge for knowledge’s sake, drinking 6 beers in 10 seconds.
Update: Good citizenship requires me to add this postscript, from a reader:
Hello Mr. Goldberg,
At first blush this video very amusing. And, I don’t want to be
perceived as overly reacting to seemingly harmless fun. But, this is
the type of activity that will get some one killed. I work in a medical
ICU and every couple of years we have a college student on life support
because of rapid excessive drinking. Of course, six beers won’t do it,
but generally this is a gauntlet to be taken up by a fellow student.
Sorry to be a spoilsport.
