Everything we've ever known is a lie: 'Beer goggles' aren't real3/4/2013
Contrary to literally everything we've ever heard (or experienced), "beer goggles" (that phenomenon where booze seems to make everyone more beautiful) are not "a thing." A new study authored by Dr. Amanda Ellison of Durham University suggests that we view each other no differently because of our blood alcohol content. "We still see others basically as they are," she said. "There is no imagined physical transformation — just more desire. Alcohol switches off the rational and decision-making areas of the brain while leaving the areas to do with sexual desire relatively intact." Hmm. We'll need to do our own research to corroborate. Yes … research. Lots of research. [Source]
