The setup: You debate this at every party. Now it's time to settle it once and for all. BEER PONG Girls prefer flip cup, right? Wrong. What is so appealing about warm beer dribbling down your chin or inducing a nasty case of the hiccups when you try to inhale overly carbonated keg swill in less than 4 seconds?

You always remember your first time. It's sweaty, awkward; you don't know what to do with your hands. The first experience with flip cup is so memorable. The game's nothing without the iconic red Solo cup though, right? Have you ever tried to play with some other kind of cup? It just doesn't feel right. The company that makes the landmark plastic drinkware (based in suburban Chicago, don'cha know) is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, and since I'm the only Pulitzer-winner* on staff, I took a crack at a composition in honor of the occasion.

Now imagine doing this stone sober. For many people, showing up to a crowded bar without a buzz doesn't have much appeal. But a Swiss study that will be published in February found that drinkers aged 18-26 who pregame consumed twice as much alcohol over the course of a night than those who only drank at a bar, and that pregame drinkers were more likely to suffer blackouts and engage in unplanned drug use and...
