    Link: The Beer Goggle Equation - Glad to see we`ve got our scientists and mathematicians working on the big issues.

    Being drunk is now a science? We dont need statistics to prove the theory of beer goggles

    i had the beer goggle thing happen to me once. i thought he was cute when i was drunk, but when i saw him when i was sober i was like ooooooh no. it was a ace thing, not a body thing. this theory makes SOME sense i think.

    "In a more recent study, this one conducted by researchers at England`s Manchester University in 2005, scientists actually came up with a mathematical formula to calculate the extent of the "beer goggle" effect on a given individual in a given situation. Their reasoning for creating this formula is that alcohol is not really the only factor affecting the drunken perception of beauty."

    Uh-huh. :-| So, these scientists have too much time on their hands or what??

    I had too much to drink about 14 months ago, and while things I did then are somewhat obscure, I may be the father of Anna Nicole Smith`s daughter.

    I thought it said the beer google equation when i first read it, but still pretty interesting. I`ll have to watch out for that when i am of drinking age, or the next party I go to. lol

    the important thing about the article is this.... Please learn it and you will not wake up screaming next time.....

    ƒÀ = (An)2 x d(S + 1)

    ãL x (Vo)2

    An is the number of servings of alcohol
    S is the smokiness of the area on a scale of 0 - 10
    L is the lighting level of the area, measured in candelas per square meter, in which 150 is normal room lightning
    Vo is Snellen visual acuity, in which 6/6 is normal and 6/12 is the lower limit at which someone is able to drive
    d is the distance between the observer and the observed, measured in meters
    Source: BBC News
    The formula works out a "beer goggle" score ranging from 1 to 100+. When ƒÀ = 1, the observer is perceiving the same degree of beauty he or she would perceive in a sober state. At 100+, everybody in the room is a perfect 10.

    Someone has too much spare time.

    Now, next time I go out, I can work out how drunk I`ll get before I start drinking. Fantastic.

    Yeah, right. That equation can`t be accurate. You would need scientists with you to calculate the visibility, distance. Like you can measure that when you`re drunk. They should have personalized calculators that do that for you. Now THAT would be helpful, you would just press a button and it will tell you how drunk you are and if you should go and have unprotected "sex" with that other person.

    "So little Timmy, would you want to learn about the equations to explain the world in new and exciting ways?"
    "No way! I want you to explain the mathematical principles behind the beer goggle vision equation."

    It`s actually cool. I saw it on TV when they actually tested it out on people.
