Wait, Alcohol Makes You Smarter?
A new study done at the University of Texas at Austin found that alcohol may actually make you smarter. But how is this possible when I act so dumb after a few, you ask? Well, researchers found that alcohol impairs certain parts of the brain while it stimulates others. When alcohol hits your bloodstream, dopamine is released, which acts as a learning aid for our brains. So, while you may forget the name of the dude you made out with while intoxicated, your subconscious synapses will be popping off like firecrackers. And when you wake up the next day with a hangover, you will have learned never to drink that much again. Aren’t you smart. [UPI]
