From The "Oh Great NOW You Tell Me" Files . . . .


It seems that drowning your sorrows in alcohol doesn't, in fact, help you forget them, but actually locks memories in place longer than if you didn't drink!

Researchers at the University of Tokyo concluded that ethanol -- an intoxicating agent in alcohol -- does not cause memory to decrease, as widely believed, but instead locks it in place.
Boy, you'd think I would have figured this out on my own!!! So the good news is, it's not MY fault I can't get over Rene', it's Don Henley's fault for giving me this bad advice:


You're Not Drinking Enough
lyrics by Don Henley

I can see that you haven't recovered from
the girl who let you down
And you'd sell what is left of your soul for
another go-round
You keep telling yourself she means nothing
and maybe you should call her bluff
But you don't really believe it
You must not be drinking enough
Well, the perfume she wore you can buy
down at the Five & Dime
But on some other woman
It don't smell the same in your mind
You keep telling yourself you can take it-
Telling yourself that you're tough
But you still wanna hold her
You must not be drinkin' enough
You're not drinking enough
to wash away old memories
And there ain't enough whiskey in Texas to
keep you from beggin' ,"Please, please, please."
She passed on your passion
and stepped on your pride
Turns out you ain't quite so tough
'Cause you still wanna hold her
You must not be drinkin' enough
Ay-yi-yi-yi
Ask yourself why
You still wanna hold her
You must no be drinkin' enough
Ay-yi-yi-yi, etc.......

Interesting theory. Does this mean that I should drink while studying???

Couldn't hurt?

Maybe right after studying?

I had the same thought. Pisser huh?

If the students at UT find about about this, we are in big trouble here. The streets won't be safe, as if they are anyway.

I'm thinking those kids don't need a reason to drink.
