God Bless the boffins, ABC Online is reporting on research at ANU showing that not only does moderate alcohol intake make you happier and healthier. It also makes you smarter.
Get that up you, cloddish abstemious teetotallers!
I totally agree, although I have to stay away from mirrors in the morning.
Then again, it is logical. Drink, fall asleep. You get more beautiful from drinking, and for getting more beauty sleep.
Still not convinced about the intelligent bit.
I guess the obvious solution to prove this is to test it…
half right. It makes other people look better, but doesn’t make them appear more intelligent, unless of course, you’ve got a skinful yourself.
Then they may appear to the sober outsider that they are more intelligent.
It’s obviously not working for me….
AD, that’s probably just biting sarcasm, bear-with-a-sore-head style.
I’m far wittier when I’m hungover.. if that means anything
imagine that, anu students think that drinking makes you smarter and sexier.
southpac must be relieved.
Being more intelligent makes you drink so that your percieved intelligence becomes equal to the rest of society, perhaps?
And having the income to do so.
Of course, there’s no evidence of the cause-effect relationship here. It might be that being smart makes you predisposed to drinking at a moderate level (for whatever reason that might be).
But I have no doubt that people will interperate this in whatever way suits them (see above) 🙂
I thought drinking made OTHER PEOPLE smarter and more attractive…..
Which means you must be intelligent!
Oh I see it now. (Sorry, I’m pissed.)
Note the deliberate mistake in the above post….
Ha Ha! I knew it!
That means that I super intelligent because I drink more than average!!!!!
