Beer anyone?

I’ve been hella (that’s a scientific term) busy of late, and haven’t had a chance to poke my head out and do much of anything other than science. I’m pushing deadlines of all kinds, and going just a little bit crazy.

Then I ran across this article, putting forth an evolutionary rationale for intelligent people drinking more than non-intelligent people. There have been a number of recent articles pointing out that it is hands down the most harmful drug to the individual and society, outclassing heroin, crack and meth. Of course, intelligent people like those too (see William S. Burroughs, Phillip K. Dick, etc.).

So maybe that’s why beer sounds so good right about now…
