Shoot some vodka through your eye, why don’t ya!

Every Wednesday we bring you weird drinks from around the world, but today we decided to shift the focus to weird people and their absurd drinking ritual.

Remember when Price Harry indulged in some vodka snorting a while back?  Well, that’s like so last year. The latest trend amongst young people and crazy idiots is Vodka eyeballing. How does it work? You just tip back your head and allow someone to pour a shot of vodka straight into your eyeball. Or you can even do it on your own, like this:

for a reaction like this:

According to some vodka eyeballers, the alcohol allegedly passes quickly through your eye’s mucous membrane and automatically enters the bloodstream, giving you a serious buzz.

Why on earth would someone do something like this? I’m guessing: very low IQ and even lower self-respect.

The Daily Mail spoke to one of these “class acts” who claimed that doctors and university authorities have reason to be worried when it comes to the long term damages of eyeballing. Her constantly watering left eye has been left permanently scarred by her antics. More worryingly still, she has been warned that her eyesight may deteriorate further as she gets older. “I’m in constant pain because of what I did,’ she says. ‘And I’m terrified that it will get worse. I wish I could turn the clock back and change things. But I can’t.’

Dr. Kent Wellish, an ophthalmologist in Las Vegas, said that repeated exposure of vodka to an eye can cause long-term effects, such as conjunctivitis, keratitis, and for some, blindness and said: “Unless you like the feeling of soap (in your eye) every time you blink for the rest of your life, it’s not a good idea.”

To top it off, the doctor said vodka eyeballing doesn’t even work. He said more alcohol is absorbed through the traditional shot taking than absorbing it into the eyeball. Now put that in your eyeball and shoot it SUCKERS!
