More research

While not as stimulating as sex in an MRI, there's this amusing piece about pregaming (drinking before going out).

Imagine that - college students drink before going out, especially for events where drinking isn't allowed. Amazing.

And here's another weird study that said "women who had up to two drinks a day scored about 20 percent higher on the Mini Mental State Exam (MMSE) than women who didn't drink at all or who consumed less than one drink a week." While it doesn't seem that the study is available online, the obvious questions that come to mind are: What does the MMSE actually test? Besides the fact that these people drink, what else sets them apart? (Mainly since correlation is not causation . . . )

You have to love the sensational headline: Do Drinks Help Women Think?
