Scientists found that men who either drank two pints of beer or two glasses of wine before solving brain teasers not only got more questions right, they also were quicker in delivering correct answers, compared to men who answered the questions sober.

Those same scientists are also investigating the possibility that beer may help reverse the aging process. When asked, these same men agreed the women in the room looked younger after drinking two pints of beer.

Other experts said while the findings were interesting and made sense, they stressed that sleep is probably just as beneficial for enhancing creativity. Past research showed that people who were allowed to sleep after being given a problem were also more likely to come up with a creative solution compared to those who stayed awake.


I like this solution better :)

That's either a Squinting Modifier or a Dangling Participle but I can never remember which is which. Am I supposed to drink the beer myself, or pour it into the best-looking guy in the room? And are those English pints or American pints? Not sure I've got room for the extra eight ounces. Or, if we're doing Option B, I need to make sure I have the right size funnel.

But seriously. How many combined graduate degrees did it take to figure out that

et cetera?

Among classicists it is widely believed that hotels love hosting their conventions because classicists drink more than any other professional group except rock musicians, and they don't smash up the rooms.

Something tells me that the identical belief is also held by all other professional groups in the known universe.

Out with the apple juice and in with the beer for kids' lunch boxes on Monday.

That's the song that went through my head too... As for that dangling participle, I think everyone should drink more beer.

I know when I play pool (billiards to some) I do a lot better if I've had 1-2 beers but it goes down hill really fast the more beers I have. I suspect it's the same for intelligence unfortunately.
