Miller Vortex Bottle

Many of you might remember the Miller vortex bottle. Its selling point was that the neck was ribbed on the inside, which supposedly allowed the beer to pour out faster. Apparently there just wasn't a large enough community of speed drinkers who cared about this to allow the vortex bottle to be much more than a passing gimmick.

For speed drinking, you couldn't beat Mickey's Big Mouth Bottles. The only drawback I remember is if you accidentally dropped the bottle, it was at least half empty before you could pick it up. And if you were drinking Mickey's while driving, you were instantly sitting in a small pool of beer. (Don't ask how I know about that.)

Why would anyone speed drink Miller Light, when they could just drink *real* beer at a normal rate? That is, unless the goal is to make more frequent visits to the loo.

The ribbing would have to turn the other way in Australia.

That can't be good for the carbonation.
