We were sitting in a hot tub debating how drunk we could get by osmosis if we kept spilling our drinks in it. This is what engineering college does to you.

No, engineers would be trying to figure out the optimal way to keep your hands as warm as possible while keeping the drink as cold as possible. Your conversation is more biology/chemistry major. At a community college.
I love it when people try to sneak in their major in converaation because they are proud. But don't realize what their talking aboot
I believe Biology is the department that teaches osmosis.
You can't get drunk through osmosis because osmosis is, by definition, only applicable to water. It's the diffusion of water across a semipermeable membrane from an area of high to low concentration. Know what you're talking about if you're going to try an show off.
And the girls that are turned off by this end up marrying lesser men.
Yes, osmosis is a principal of Biology. Typically, basic Biology is a requirement in an Engineering program because it's a science based degree. However, osmosis is the process of water traveling down a concentration gradient from a higher concentration to a lower one.
The engineering perspective would tell you that the ethanol in the drink would have quickly evaporated, due to the high temperature of the hot tub's water, thus preventing an osmosis, if it was even possible in the first place.
