"The beneficial mental effects of alcohol were found when a person drinks up to about 30 drinks per week, and increased with consumption"...that makes me a genius!!! ;)
LIfe begins at 60...1.060, that is.

I could think of a couple other reasons to explain this: For those civil servents who arn't quite on the ball, perhaps they simply just forgot where they put the beer!

It is nice to finally have a scientific study to point to after crawling home and seeing the look on your significant others face...

>>>.Dr. Guy Ratcliffe, the Medical Director of the Medical Council on Alcohol, said that “this is a well-researched study, and it’s important that information such as this is available so that people can make informed decisions about alcohol consumption.”>>>>>

He also commented that this increased cognitive ability only appears to be a factor in civil servants. Other control groups, such as college students and those carousing single bars, seem to experience a loss of cognitive ability, especially during last call at closing time. Dr. Ratcliffe referred to this as the "Chew Your Arm Off in the Morning" paradox.
