What happens if you give someone a nonalcoholic drink but tell them it contains alcohol — will they act drunk? Seth puts this party theory to the test to find out if drunkenness is truly in the eye of the beer-holder. Michael believes his hypothesis can go the distance as he attempts to prove that a shrimp has greater endurance than the average human.
