How to do a No-Hands Shot

When was the last time you thought about taking a drink? If you're thirsty, you reach out and take the glass, and you put it to your lips. But what if drinking didn't come that easily? What if taking a shot or sipping a beer took a whole lot more planning? We recently found this article where a young woman with quadriplegia explains how she goes about taking a shot. It's eye-opening, the heroic measures it can take to get a simple buzz, and we thought it was cool enough to share.

First, make sure the bartender doesn't fill up the shot glass right at the brim. Second, you have to make the big decision: Should I use my mouth, or spend about 3 minutes trying to pick it up with my limp hand and try to precariously hold it? (I guess it depends what kind of a rush you're in to start drinking). Usually, since I think it looks AWESOME, I like to use my mouth. Pick it up tightly with your lips, use the back of your hand to balance it, and throw your head back and drink.
[via Disaboom] Well done, Tiffiny. And for those of you out there who think that doesn't sound too tough, we recommend you try the exercise in the following video to put things in perspective.

Usually when I get in that position I'm not trying to do a shot, if you catch my drift.
