I do not know how the Dutch got the reputation for alcohol fueled derring do but this article, on one of the greatest wastes of scientific expenditure ever, appears to confirm it. Where else could we get data points? Let me think... Let me think..... How about from any Friday or Saturday Night at any non-fern bar in the country? How about from the popular term, used by Toby Keith in the excellant "I Ain't as Good as I Once Was..." -"feeling bullet proof." How about from the police blotter?
If you find a person has attempted to pick up a rattler with his bare hands-check alcohol level. When a man insults a biker gang-check alcohol level. When a man momentarily allows a brief affirmative thought to form in his mind when a women asks him 'does this outfit make me look fat."-check alcohol. Yes, alcohol reduces one's ability to detect threats-bravo for science!
