I submitted this with a completely slurred and even more unintelligable headline.

I just have a poor memory. Every time I learn something new, it pushes something else out. Remember when I took that wine-making class and then I forgot how to drive?

Alcohol causes memory loss and something else.

Alcohol inhibits my better judgement regarding the attractiveness and relative sanity of females. That's why I just enjoy speedballing

Alcohol is a poison, which is why over consumption can quickly kill a person. You can get the same effects of alcohol with Formaldehyde, it just takes a LOT less.

And here I am about ready to drink half-yards of beer tomorrow night. Sigh, so be it.

Alcohol = brain damage.

Alcohol protects from brain damage (new window)

I am curious as to whether drinking alcoholically for extended periods of time can improve cognitive efficiency. When I was younger, I tested right at the 98% percentile on a standardized test of intelligence. Become a world class alcoholic and almost drink myself to death, sobered up, and then took another formal IQ test. This time I am in the 99,7% percentile.

Measurement error? Perhaps. Or am I somehow smarter? If so, why?

If you're so smart, figure it out yourself Mr. Smarty-smart-smart!

/I may have been drinking

"Well, you see, Norm, it's like this. A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it's the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.

In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.

And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers."
