$400k Down the Hatch

What do Argentina, booze, and homosexuals have in common? Or, maybe, a better question is, why is the US spending $400k to find out? Six lucky researchers (no sexual preferences mentioned) get to travel to Buenos Aires to find out. YT$AW

If I understand this story, the Dept. of Health has never heard of beer goggles, or believes they effect homosexuals differently than heterosexuals. I really need to apply for federal funding for some BS study.

What gets me is that they claim that the information they gather might be useful to the US someday. In my experience most people have a far more casual attitude about sex than anyone in the US, even when drunk.

Some of the comments on that one are as ridiculous as the story. :lol:

excellent expat!!! drinking leads to sex? really? put free condoms in gay bars (or all bars) with the money. a far more productive way to put a dent in risky sexual behavior. geesh!
