Firewater Friday - Beer makes men smarter

I heard on the news that there was a study that was done by the University of Illinois that revealed that beer makes men smarter.  Well, if that was the case then my hubby would be a freakin' genius.  Oh wait . . . his is (really he is) !  Hmmm . . . that certainly explains a lot.

The study explains that drunks . . . I mean men . . .  that have imbibed a few brewskies do better at solving brain-teasers than their soda drinking buddies.

40 men were given a series of analytical word puzzles to solve.  Half of those men had been given a couple pints of frothy goodness and the other half were told to go pound sand. 

To the surprise of many . . . the lushes were not only able to solve 40% more of the puzzles but did it 25% faster!  Go beer hounds!! 

The study went on to show that even though the bacchanalian beer buddies were better at solving creative puzzles their memories were actually worse than their stone cold sober compatriots.

Well, you can't have everything.
