UM, I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WAS THE ALCOHOL

After running a battery of tests on inebriated college students in England (golly, how in the world did they manage to find them??), researchers Lewis Halsey, Joerg Huber, Richard Bufton and A.C. Little of London's Roehampton University have determined that alcohol impairs our ability to recognize asymmetrical faces -- which humans naturally prefer, previous studies have shown.

Behold the power of Budweiser, my friends.

Discovery News reports:

"Twenty images of a pair of faces -- one symmetrical, the other asymmetrical -- and then 20 images of a single face were shown, one at a time, to 64 students. Participants were asked to state which face of each of the pairs was most attractive. They also had to determine whether each of the single faces displayed was symmetrical.

"The sober students had a greater preference for symmetrical faces than did the intoxicated students. And it turned out that the sober students were better at detecting whether a face was symmetrical.



"What's more, the data suggest that men were less prone to losing their symmetry-detecting ability when intoxicated than women, which was unexpected, Halsey said. The difference probably has something to do with the tendency for men to be more visually oriented and more stimulated by what they see, he said."

But wait! There's more!

"Men tend to ogle more than women do," Halsey said.

Now THAT'S news.
