Rose Tinted Beer Goggles

To be honest I haven’t decided if I want to laugh or cry at the recent study from Psychologists at the University of Washington.

Laugh at the fact that they asked students to self-justify their drinking habits, or cry and the inevitability of the result and total waste of money!

The survey of 500 students was quite clear: the students overall expressed the opinion that for them, the positive consequences of heavy boozing (“boosts of courage, chattiness and joke-telling abilities, improved sexual encounters and more energy to stay up late”) outweighed negative ones (“blackouts, fights, hangovers, missed classes and work”).

So there you are “breaking news”: for many people, the benefits of drinking outweigh the downsides.
