Contemplating it all from the great Pacific Northwest

Studies I like

In an amusing aside, David Warren notes that:

On the subject of drinking, yet another long-term, in-depth study, this one of 7,000 persons by Australian National University’s Centre for Mental Health Research, has shown that people who drink (specifically, alcohol) are smarter and healthier than people who don’t.

Also, I should think: wiser, kinder, prettier, happier, and better. But the study was restricted to drivelling tests of verbal reasoning, short-term memory, and the like. Unsurprisingly, teetotallers appeared to be more likely than certified alcoholics to achieve the lowest scores.

I don’t think they had this kind of beer in mind.

Well, if I can’t have that, I will certainly be happy with a McAuslan’s St-Ambrose Oatmeal Stout. I note that the loneliest liberal in the Red Ensign group likes it too, so I guess he can’t be all bad then.

I also like studies that showing that chocolate is good for you.
