Bloke ‘parties’ while wearing a Fitbit to study the effects on his body
Whether you’re a ‘party’ person or not, you can’t deny the fact that for large swathes of the population, nights out usually involve more than a few pints. Yeah, nah, when it comes to additional mood-altering additives, the cat’s not the only the thing out of the bag. Of course, one of the questions raised by this is just what kind of toll this takes on your body. Fortunately, a Vice journalist decided to do the science. Over four nights, Mac Hackett partook in four different flavours. The results are all here for you…
So, look, we’ll start with the obvious caveat: we don’t condone this s**t. It’s not our style, and it’s no secret that this sort of s**t might make you think you’re having a blast, while also making you look like a bit of a c*ckhead to everyone else.
Anyway, we’re not here to lecture you. We’re just here to say, don’t try this at home, but if you do, the effects on Mac Hackett’s body and sleep are right here for you.
What you can see from the trends in here is that depending on the nature of the ‘catalyst’, the resulting effects seemed to vary from immediate to slow-burning. There’s also a marked difference in two of the major players’ effects on your willingness to go strolling about.
Anyway, here’s what Mac had to say:
“With pretty much everything we enjoy consuming, ignorance is bliss. I wasn’t completely ignorant to the fact that (it’s) bad for you – that’s fairly well known – but was of the fairly common thinking that: I’ll be fine. Seeing graphs detailing the real-time effect on my heart, however, highlighted an inconvenient truth akin to realising that your large Domino’s pizza and garlic dip contains more calories than you need in an entire day. That truth being: keep at it, and I probably won’t be fine at all.”
Final thought: Hackett’s experiment makes for good reading, but what’s most evident is that he kept talking about feeling like s**t the next day. We don’t know about you, but we always reckon that when something stops being fun, you’ve probably found a good time to stop.
