Beer Goggles

It has finally been proven that what most of us men already knew is a scientific fact, beer goggles are real! A team from the University of Bristol has proven in a controlled study that alcohol intake increases the regularity of our thoughts on sex and improves the appearance of those around you.

The team conducted a controlled experiment on 84 heterosexual volunteers. The experiment involved half of the group getting a little bit drunk and then the whole group being asked to rate the attractiveness of others in a series of photographs. The results of the study are reported in the New Scientist magazine.

The results indicate that those that were slightly drunk rated the attractiveness of those in the photos that they were shown as being more attractive than the group that was sober. An interesting aside was that the slightly drunk volunteers also found members of the same sex to be more attractive.

This would seem to end the argument as to whether the "beer goggle" theory is true or not, it seems that it has now been scientifically proven. I reckon that this will now become the scientific reason and excuse for those many indiscretions of one's youth.

Happy drinking to you my loyal readers!

They say beauty lies in the eyes of the beer holder.

Another benefit from drinking beer: drinking guinness/dark beer is said to increase breastmilk production. Never heard of that in Indonesia where eating "daun katuk" is the recommended therapy! MUI will probably give me a fatwa for promoting haram drinks to fellow mursing mums.

@katadia: Won't that make the baby drunk? LOL I don't know anything about baby and breastfeeding but I heard that the mom eats tons of chilli when she's still breastfeeding then the baby would be "affected" too

I had not heard that! But, it is probably something that Guinness should explore further.

Guninness for me was always a meal replacement drink, "the steak in every glass!"

I guess this is about starting them young :D

Fatwa, now there's an interesting response from those who do not understand! If you do not understand it, then ban it.

What does the chili do?

the writer said...

Well, the baby will taste chilli in the mother's milk, and that's not good and give the baby diarrhoea. At least that's what I have heard

Has the same effects on some adults, ahhhhh the buring ring of fire!!!!

GJ said...

oops "burning"

I thought the burning ring of fire was a song :D

I guess practice makes perfect because chili does not seem to have that effect on me (too much information, right?)
