Scientific Breakthrough: Ugly People Look Cute When You’re Drunk!

August 20th, 2002 · No Comments

I did a double-take when I heard about this study on the morning news. Did we really need a controlled experiment to tell us that persons of your favorite gender look better after a few G&Ts? I think most of us are reminded of that rather pointedly whenever we rub the spot on our shoulders where our arms were reattached after being gnawed off some unfortunate morning. But at least they’ve quantified the effect: people are exactly 25% more attractive after a few beers. Oh, and leave your lighters at home. My friend Kate says that studies show you’re 12% sexier when someone else lights your cigarette.
