Beer googles do work!!

> Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Yep that’s true. But what affects the opinion of the beholder?

Alcohol of course!

It’s something most of us have long suspected, but which researchers have now confirmed in tests:

Someone with a few drinks inside them really does think other people are more attractive than if they hadn’t had the drinks:

A team from the University of Bristol in England conducted a controlled experiment on 84 young heterosexuals, getting half of them tipsy on a drink and asking all of them to rate the attractiveness of people in photographs (source).

Both drunk men and drunk women rated the faces as being more attractive than did those who were sober, according to New Scientist magazine.

But how many drinks will you need before you want to get off with the lass below?
