If you’d like to get drunk faster — lose weight. People who undergo gastric bypass surgery get drunk quicker and take longer to get sober. The study (conducted by researchers at Stanford University) found that the procedure, which is increasingly common in the fight against obesity, heightened the effects of alcohol.

Police said that a private garbage truck’s drunk driver lost control of his massive rig and slammed into several cars, a tree, and a Brooklyn resident’s front gate on Saturday. 40-year-old Anthony Castaldo was in a drunken stupor while driving down 60th St. between 19th and 20th avenues in Borough Park about 5:20 a.m. when he somehow lost control of the wheel. The 64,000-pound truck crushed eight parked vehicles — knocking them around like Matchbox cars — before slamming into a tree and coming to a stop in someone’s front yard, steps from the stoop. Castaldo climbed out of his truck and ran off, but was quickly arrested by police. One of the cops injured his elbow and hand during the pursuit. Police charged Castaldo with resisting arrest, drunken and reckless driving, and leaving the scene of an accident. https://goo.gl/1YhwDN
