A new study suggests that BEER, not gender, intelligence, or dumb luck is a significant factor in the success or failure of research scientists. The more beer a scientist drank, the less they were published or were referred to in other scientists publications.
I’m just wondering if the scientist that did the study was drinking beer, given he was published in the NY Times, I wonder if that’s +- 2 standard deviations from the mean?
One thought on “But they didn’t say anything about Tequila…”
think i’ll finish that article i’m writing if i switch to ouzo? or is it alcohol that’s the bane of publishing, and all the real productive academics are doing coke? you know they came up with the plan for this study drunk at a bar at a conference, right?
