  • So, what'll it be, Mister... The name's Bond. Ionic bond. Taken, not shared. Hello and welcome

  • to The Lab, where we take your questions and turn them into experiments every Sunday. My

  • name's Mitch and I'm Greg and today we're going to be getting drunk in the name of science.

  • So study's actually show that it's really hard when you're drinking to predict how drunk

  • you actually are, so we're gonna play with that a little bit. We're going to be doing

  • something else. Oh yeah, we're gonna actually also be seeing if can trick a breathalyzer

  • into thinking we're not drunk after we've already had quite a bit to drink. And we're

  • gonna test some scientific theories about whether or not you can sober up really quickly.

  • So we're essentially going to have a really fast party. Test #1. To start, we want to

  • say that obviously we are here trying to have a talk about alcohol as a chemical that enters

  • your body and is a poison and is something that can be very addictive. So, we're not

  • condoning alcohol, but we're trying to, you know, scientifically look at what it does

  • to our bodies as something that many people in our society do it's a really strong custom

  • and part of our culture. On that note, cheers! So, an interesting thing about beer that relates

  • to science is that Niels Bohr, who was a Danish scientist, after receiving the Nobel Prize,

  • Karlsberg, a very famous Danish--Danish famish--brewery actually opened a line of beer right directly

  • to his house on tap so that Niels Bohr after receiving his Nobel Prize got to have beer

  • whenever he wanted. I feel like more people who try to get Nobel Prizes if they knew that

  • was the reward. Mmm! Ah! Did you know that a "butt" is a Medieval measurement--like B,

  • U, T, T, like my butt--is 126 gallons of wine? Yeah, uh, did not know that. Oh, the oaky

  • texture is divine. Oh, it smells like a $4 wine, doesn't it? *burping* So, next up, we

  • have a Canadian delicacy known as the caesar. Mmm! Tastes like Zoodles. It is like spicy.

  • Tastes like Zoodles. I'm feeling kind of tipsy. Studies actually show that when you think

  • that you're the most drunk, your actual peak drunkenness is 25 minutes after you actually

  • think that it is. So, I'm feeling very drunk right now and so I'm worried about myself

  • in 25 minutes. Over here we've got sober, feeling good, this is you know, where you

  • can and can't drive, and so we are going to take our little action pieces and decide and

  • estimate where we are. Here's 0.09 because I think that I couldn't drive. I think if

  • a cop stopped me right now, I'd be like, I'm sorry, here's my jail time.Ithink I'll put

  • mine a little lower, like probably right on 0.08. *blowing into breathalyzer* 0.02! So

  • I actually was overestimating. That's how careful I am. *blowing into breathalyzer*

  • 0.03! Okay, so I'm at the feeling good section. Yeah, do you feel good? I feel good. That's

  • true. But I mean, I would probably feel good here too. I feel like if I was the government

  • of Canada, I would be like, lower that to like 0.03. According to science, drinking

  • diet drinks with your alcohol will get you drunk faster. And it does make sense and it

  • is true because what happens is the sugar acts as a meal so it holds the alcohol in

  • your stomach for longer and your stomach actually absorbs alcohol much slower than your small

  • intestine. So when you drink diet cokes, the alcohol makes its way to your small intestine

  • faster, therefore where it is absorbed more, so if you really, for whatever reason, want

  • to get drunk very fast, you do use diet cola. Okay--this is too much to go on the internet.

  • I am so ashamed. Wait, everyone keeps talking about the internet. What's the internet? I

  • like don't know what it is. Everyone's always like, what's it like to have a job on the

  • internet and I'm like "what?" Did you know that the British Navy actually found that

  • rum would stop their scurvy when they're at sea? Did you know that? Do you believe that?

  • No. It was an interesting finding until they realized it was actually the lime that they

  • were putting in their rum that was helping to fight off the scurvy but they for the longest

  • time thought that the rum itself had some magical ingredient. Oh, the British. *does

  • bad Cockney accent* Oh, that alcohol will save you. Rum innite? This is one of my favourite

  • drink. Yeah, rum and coke. This is Mitch's poison. Ohhh, Ah!!! *laughs* We're going to

  • do some vodka and coke, also known as a "voke". OOOOH, that's university! One weird thing

  • about vodka is that it actually goes bad and you're not supposed to keep it for more than

  • 12 months. Really? Why do we feel this way? We're obviously intoxicated at this point.

  • What is alcohol doing to us? Actually, alcohol is slowing down our brain and our neuron's

  • responses... There are two different types of neurons. Some are excitatory and some are

  • inhibitory. And so alcohol actually slows down the excitatory neurons and stimulates

  • the inhibitory neurons. Now, normally those inhibitory neurons help to guide your thoughts,

  • so that your brain isn't just being stimulated crazily. But alcohol actually stimulates those

  • more, so you shut down a lot of the process in your brain. You stop paying attention to

  • those external sources or noises around you that your brain is really good at picking

  • up. You think a lot about nothing. Picture this: Magic School Bus. Coming to Netflix.

  • And then like a weird live-action lizard running up Julianne Moore's arm and it's like, "Get

  • in the bus." And it's like 2017. I would be like *breathes heavily*. I have to pee pretty

  • bad. Are you at that point? I can explain this. So, in our kidneys, it's really important

  • that you have your anti-dieuretic hormone which re-absorbs water back into your body,

  • because you don't want to just get rid of water, because water is what makes you live.

  • And so, alcohol binds to that anti-dieuretic hormone and so when it binds to it, therefore

  • you don't re-absorb water back into your body, you just piss it all out. That's why when

  • you go out to bars and you drink lots of beer, you just pee all the time and therefore you

  • become dehydrated and therefore you become hungover and therefore you have to pee really

  • bad right now, because alcohol's binding to your anti-dieuretic hormone and that's why

  • you have to pee. Also, the most important thing in the world is science. Girl, I'm gonna

  • whip out some diet--straight to the brain. Straight to the small intestine. True. So

  • are you near blurred vision and speech, or are you close to sad? I think that I'm probably

  • at 0.10 and I have zero idea what's going on. Your turn! I think I'm probably 0.13.

  • You're drunker than me! *laughing* We should pose with it like our baby. Tharr she blows!

  • *breathes in loudly* 0.08! If any cop were to pull me over right now and was like "you

  • can go sir!" I'd be like "no, no, no, no! You're protecting the people. Don't let me

  • go." Lower it Canada! I'm 0.08 as well. Consider that in most places, 0.05 is the limit, so

  • we're actually over it. You can't really predict. We've been so bad at not only predicting it.

  • I kind of thought we'd be like "oh, we're always feeling good," but we're more drunk.

  • I honestly thought that we'd be like more drunk but actually down here. So, one myth

  • I've come across on the internet is that peanut butter can actually stop or hide the fact

  • that you're drunk. And another theory is that if you suck on a penny, you can actually do

  • a breathalyzer test and the results will be a lot lower than you think that they are.

  • Allegedly, the sodium in the peanut butter binds to the ethanol in the alcohol and somehow

  • stops the breathalyzer from picking it up. I think that the science for the penny...

  • It's just a rumour. Mmm, I love peanut butter. Ew. I can't believe I'm doing this. How's

  • the penny? I'm sucking on the Queen right now. This is so gross. I went down .01! Wow!

  • It went down! So mine may have gone down a little bit, but it's still above the legal

  • limit. This did not make any drastic change to what I was doing. I think a 0.01 change

  • is negligable enough that it doesn't necessarily mean it could have been anything. It definitely

  • is not just from sucking on a penny. I would still be in trouble and have a DUI--I would

  • be over the limit. Okay, so scientists have shown that potentially honey could be the

  • cure for your drunkenness. And what they did, is that actually got mice intoxicated. They

  • found out that when they gave mice honey and certain ones not, the ones that got honey

  • were actually better able to perform specific climbing tests better and were able to have

  • their dexterity be heightened. And so essentially they were like "okay, honey maybe has done

  • some stuff to these mice", but they don't know exactly why. So we are going to be the

  • first human subjects who clearly right now are drunk. This is not okay though because

  • like mine's gone down by zero. It's like SO, SO intensely full of glucose and sugar that

  • I actually think my body's like. Maybe these mice were just like shocked. *gagging* I don't

  • think this is a reasonable way to sober up, because you just feel sick. In the study,

  • the scientists argue that it increases otonomic activity, kind of as if we were just saying,

  • like if a cop shows up at a party, and all of a sudden you think, I know exactly what

  • to do. I'm only .01 down below of where I was before and I feel like that would be a

  • natural progression from the wait. Mine stayed the same. In this case it did not work. In

  • the meantime, it's time for THIS WEEK IN SCIENCE TALK! So this week, we're hungover. A one-year-old

  • girl with leukemia has receieved modified immune cells from a healthy donor, which has

  • put her cancer into remission. This type of therapy has actually already been done on

  • an HIV patient in the past, where they took healthy t-cells from another subject and put

  • them inside of him. This gene-editing technology could be a glimpse into the future of medical

  • care. Soon scientists will be intimately studying how 10,000 New Yorkers live their lives, where

  • they go, what they eat, how they grow, etc. This will help to gain new bio-medical and

  • sociological information to help inspire new groundbreaking studies. *singing* THIS DATA

  • WILL INSPIRE YOU. Swedish scientists have discovered that high-intensity-interval-training,

  • or working out really hard for short periods of time, offers the same endurance benefits

  • as longer, more time consuming exercizes that are less intense. This really intense training

  • creates free radicals that break down calcium levels, ultimately increasing the power of

  • muscle cells. Less gym time means more Zelda time. Thanks again for watching another episode

  • of the Lab. Don't forget to follow us on Instagram or Twitter, with our handles right here. We're

  • gonna go drink a bunch of water and sleep, so subscribe to our channel and we'll see

  • you next week. Peace.

So, what'll it be, Mister... The name's Bond. Ionic bond. Taken, not shared. Hello and welcome
