We’ve all got that one friend or as I like to call them, party asses. You invite them out for a few beers. Things are going well maybe you even decide to order a few appetizers and start texting more friends to see if they want to meet up with you.
You think you are having a great debate over whether or not Heather Locklear still has fake tits. All of the sudden, shit gets personal and you find yourself defending anything in your buddy’s path from why you wear patterned socks to whether or not you should punch your boss in the face.
The night ends abruptly because if it doesn’t it will end badly. You’re scratching your head trying to figure out why he gets this way and what the hell did you say to set him off again. Turns out, there is a reason behind it and it’s more than just those beers he threw back.
A new study released by the University of New South Wales in Australia suggests that just a couple of drinks can interfere with your prefrontal cortex—also known as the part of the brain that keeps you from doing something stupid or turning into a dickhead for no reason.
Using an MRI, researchers looked at the brain activity of 50 healthy, young guys after they had two vodka drinks. They were looking for blood flow to the prefrontal cortex. For those that did not have the cocktails the blood flow was greater to that area. And just to be sure they had them engage with a computer game that was competitive.
So yeah, the next time you are out and you see this coming on show them this blog in a non-threatening way, of course.
