In two studies, one conducted in the United States and one in the UK, smarter people tend to drink "more frequently and in greater quantities" than their dumber , sober peers.

They determined the intelligence of children and categorized them into five groups ranging from "very dull" to "very bright." Later in their lives, somewhere from 20-40, they were polled and as it turns out, the ones originally labeled as brighter had downed more drinks.


This we aren't exactly sure, but since you and I are so incredibly bright, we know there isn't always a REASON for the drinking, so Slainte!
