Study Shows People That Drink Are Eight-Tenths Smarter Than Your Standard Deviation

October 30, 2012

The next time you’re inclined to enjoy an extra glass of wine, consider that it may be a reflection of your intelligence.That is one of the findings from data from the National Child Development Study in the United Kingdom and the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health in the United States.

Childhood intelligence, measured before the age of 16, was categorized in five cognitive classes, ranging from “very dull,” “dull,” “normal,” “bright” and “very bright.”

More intelligent children in both studies grew up to drink alcohol more frequently and in greater quantities than less intelligent children. In the Brits’ case, “very bright” children grew up to consume nearly eight-tenths of a standard deviation more alcohol than their “very dull” cohorts.

Study indicates drinkers eight-tenths smarter than your standard deviation. And better looking too…Ask the Hoff.

Paula Abdul Claims She Has A Brain In Concept And It Has Never Been Touched By Alcohol, But Is Goofy

January 3, 2011

Paula Abdul has an important message: contrary to popular belief, she has a brain.

The longtime ‘American Idol’ judge and now face of new CBS reality show ‘Live to Dance,’ Abdul says the assumptions that she isn’t all there are absolutely bunk.

“I am intelligent,” Abdul told Julie Chen of CBS News’ ‘Sunday Morning.’ “Having a brain, that’s a concept, yes, with Paula Abdul. I have a brain.”

And it’s not just any old brain — Abdul insists that it’s been untouched by alcohol. Rumors persisted that Abdul was under the influence of some sort of substance during live shows of ‘Idol,’ but those are all bunk, she says.

“I’ve never had a drinking problem… Even though I’ve been in this business for quite some time,” Abdul said. “I’ve never physically been drunk in my life. I’ve never been drunk in my life. I don’t use recreational drugs. But, I am goofy.”

She says andĀ if you don’t believe me, ask my friend David Hasselhoff. He has never been drunk, he is goofy, we often dine together.
