Over the weekend we came across a report from 9News out of Chicago. Apparently a group of researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago got together to do a small study about whether or not drinking beer could make people smarter.

Someone actually thought this was research-worthy?

The university split the men into two groups. Half were given beer and the other half were not. The half that had beer actually did better at the problem solving portion of the study, but did worse at the memory portion.

Go figure.

We don’t recommend you take this study too seriously!
