AI: Drinking Yourself Nerdy

I attended a party recently that featured a brilliant drinking game. We watched Cosmos while drinking cosmos. We drank every time Carl Sagan said “humanity”, “stars”, or “billions”.

What nerdy drinking games have you played? Have you any nerdy drink recipes that you care to share or propose?

    I once created a bunch of Tang-based drink recipes for a competition Skepchick held. The official story is the judges got so drunk they lost the voting results. Of course we all know that the whole thing was faked on a NASA movie set.

    I have heard stories about the Tang based Skepchick drink…stories I tell you.

    My entry in the Tang contest was called Death from the Skies, but I’ve renamed it Coronal Mass Ejection – a CME is easier to ask for:

    Prep Tang & Tonic: 1 Tbsp. Tang dissolved in 4 oz. tonic water
    2 oz. Malört
    1 oz. Campari
    4 dashes Angostura Bitters
    Mix in pint glass, top off glass with ice, stir.

    I also found the ‘lost voting results’ story a bit fishy, but then I saw pics of the party where the judging took place… surprised they actually found all the attendees the next day, let alone the voting results.
