Beer Makes Them Look Prettier, Fact

Something we have all suspected, the more beer you drink, the more attractive members of the opposite sex appear. The research was commissioned by eyecare firm Bausch & Lomb PureVision, and they have paid Manchester University to carry out extensive research to come up with this formula to prove it.

where you will be delighted to know

An = number of units of alcohol consumed
S = smokiness of the room (graded from 0-10, where 0 clear air; 10 extremely smoky)
L = luminance of 'person of interest' (candelas per square metre; typically 1 pitch black; 150 as seen in normal room lighting)
Vo = Snellen visual acuity (6/6 normal; 6/12 just meets driving standard)
d = distance from 'person of interest' (metres; 0.5 to 3 metres)

A formula rating of less than one means no effect. Between one and 50 the person you would normally find unattractive appears less "visually offensive".

Non-appealing people become suddenly attractive between 51 and 100. At more than 100, someone not considered attractive looks like a super model.

I remember Matt Cutts philosophy on only drinking lemonade to keep ahead of SEOs in conversation. On the evidence of this formula he would find SEO's more appealing if he took a few beers.

I'm sure I could come up with a study showing that you are more likely to behave with irrational violence the more you have to drink.

So on the whole its probably better for the majority of us that Matt stays sober :)
