Beer and Intelligence

A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo, much like the brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. The slowest buffalo are the sick and weak so they die off first, making it possible for the herd to move at a faster pace. Like the buffalo, the weak, slow brain cells are the ones that are killed off by excessive beer drinking and socialising, making the brain operate faster.

The moral of the story: Drink more beer, it will make you smarter.
All true, but then consider this paradox:

The Greenfly of any Friday night during the 80s or 90s supposedly contained a huge concentration of the Armed Forces' biggest brains, all fizzing with intellect, knowledge and sophistication.

Consider the actual average IQ level by midnight.

Beer in this case was inversely proportional to intelligence and Intelligence.
People always criticise drink driving, but when you consider that the vast majority of car accidents are caused by SOBER drivers you have to put it all into perspective!

It also takes more skill to drive while hammered so drink drivers are clearly braver, more skilled and dedicated plus statistically a lot safer.

Well that's what our duty driver tells us when he's hammered.

None - cos his wife's giving him earache for staying out all night. :wink:
