MSN claims that beer goggles are real

MSN writes, "For the first time, scientists have proven that "beer goggles" are real — other people really do look more attractive to us if we have been drinking."

Well, first of all, let me say no shit. Second, who is the idiot who decided to waste their time and money and do a scientific study on this?

It's pretty straightforward, then things take a surprising twist...

"Surprisingly, the beer goggles effect was not limited to just the opposite sex among the ostensibly straight volunteers recruited for the study — they also rated people from their own sex as more attractive." (bolding not done by me, but MSN).


Here's the link to the article - the rest of it's hilarious as it goes about describing the design of the study.
