|No Beer Goggles
A recent study by psychologists indicated
that men no longer can use the excuse of
having “beer goggles”. They found that
men do not find women more attractive
after drinking alcohol; they actually find
them less attractive. They also claim that
alcohol did not affect a mans ability to
guess a woman’s age.
The study took place in a bar in which
there were 120 sober men and women,
and 120 who have been drinking. They
were shown a digitally altered photo of a
21year old, manipulated to show how the
girl would look ages 18 and 29. The
researchers found no different in age
guesses between the drinkers and the non-
drinkers or in perception of "beauty".
In response to complaints filed by
dozens of state attorneys general,
MillerCoors has agreed to stop
producing its colorful combination of
alcohol and caffeine, also known as
“Sparks.” authorities were concerned
that the mix of alcohol and caffeine
could mask signs of drunkenness,
encouraging young consumers to drink
in excess. Sparks has 6.5 % alcohol.
