The Buffalo Theory

Quote from Cliff Clavin of Cheers...

One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm. Here's how it went:

"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

I guess that is true.. people always feels smarter after a few beers. Drinking beer is like taking medication to boost your self-confidence. I'm one of those people who just can't get onto the dance floor at a night club and 'just dance' without first having a couple of shooters.

Only problem with the Buffalo theory for me is that with my normal weekly alcohol consumption (throughout my life so far) it would of already killed off all my 'weaker' brain cells. Therefore, it would mean that all the alcohol I'm drinking now (and in the near future) would actually be killing off my good brain cells... :(

Day 4 without alcohol... *sigh..
