Beer goggles (No Comments)

So, apparently it has been scientifically proven that beer goggles are real. The original study showed folks in bars pictures of other people. They rated them as being more attractive than their non-barfly counterparts. However, it could just mean that people in bars have lower standards or some such thing. The new study gave folks either a NA beverage or an alcoholic one and then made them rate the attractiveness of members of the opposite sex and of the same sex. The folks who were drinking booze rated everyone as being more attractive than the sober folks. The next step, of course, is to see what occurs with higher doses (perhaps they can correlate it to the  lovely gnaw-your-arm-off experience, of course).
