We’ve all been in a bar and fought the urge to take a leak because “breaking the seal” means you’ll be going to the bathroom every ten minutes, right? Wrong. Evidence shows that the concept of “breaking the seal” is just a myth, and there’s nothing to it. So, you’ve been holding it and squirming for no reason for far too long. One reason you might THINK it’s an issue is because there’s a theory that alcohol affects your nerve endings, thereby creating a feeling that seems more urgent than it actually is. Dazzle your friends in the bar with THAT bit of knowledge.
