Seems backwards...

More drinks, fewer inside voices...ie, you get louder as you get more drunk. It's perfectly awesome!

Dr. Awesome said...

@anonymous: as in "indoors voice", not "voices inside your head"

Lin said...

fab!!

does this graph work for sweet iced tea and diet Dr. Pepper?

PharmacistMike said...

THAT'S GREAT...sorry, forgot my inside voice.

Mike said...

How long did the research take for this post?

Grant said...

This might be the best one yet.

Sauce said...

Ha...Proof and research? Take the tour of the Sam Adams Brewery in Boston. By the time they give away that second beer inside voices are a very confusing concept.

as someone who has spent a lot of time around drunk people and people in the process of getting drunk I can attest to the correctness of this graph, haha
I adore these, I want to copy them down and hide them in my study flash cards for the occasional laugh while studying

@anonymous and dr.awesome, in the case of prolonged psychosis, it is in fact still the correct graph. It's why so many crazy people are drunks, not vice versa.

Mike said...

I just happen to think of something. I wonder if there's a video from this research project? Anybody got the Youtube url?

yeah...thats definitely backwards...maybe he had to many drinks before he made it

Grant said...

i doubt she had too many drinks before she made it, since it's correct.

As x rises y falls. As more drinks are consumed the use of inside voices decreases.

Indeed, and it's correct for depression/anxiety as well. Until I first did any counseling, I drank a BUNCH, simply because the (metaphorical, in this case) voices in my head would shut the heck up!

'twasn't until I read the comments that I realized this was more about what I tell my 4-year-old to PLEASE do. *snicker*

Voices inside, inside voices.. works both ways!

I've been going by Inside Voices for 15 years and this comic made me feel special!
