St. Paddy’s Day: A Look at the Numbers

As I walked up to the library this morning, I was reminded by the sea of green that it’s St. Patrick’s Day. And then I got an interesting e-mail from one of my favorite information sources, Passport Reference & Markets. Their representative put together some information about Ireland and its beer consumption*, a prevalent activity on this day.

  1. Not totally sure why you posted these stats? It’s interesting to note though how legislation changes and prices matter in alcohol consumption. Maybe if we didn’t have a bunch of whiny ass kids going to school on their parents bill we’d see less of a social need to consume. I’m honestly sick and tired of having to drink with everyone and go to bars where you can’t even hear the person next to you in order to “have a good time”. Then waking up the next day at noon with a headache of massive praportion.
    I mean, we’re in college… you’d think it’d be easier to find smart individuals around here, but instead we’re home to the moron who took 15 or 16 years to graduate. Theory of idiocracy… here we come!!!

    @caleb – i posted them because i wanted to highlight our subscription to passport reference & markets in a more light-hearted manner. i’m not condoning or condemning the practices of today.
