While at lunch with my co-workers today, an interesting subject rose to the surface: the Beer Bell Curve. I forget how… or why… but in general everyone is supportive of my brewing efforts, so most likely it came up in the ceaseless praise for being God’s gift to beer. But, as usual, I digress.
In essence, the “Beer Bell Curve” states that alcohol can improve your performance up to a point, but once you’ve reached that “optimum beeritude” (brewvana?), any additional alcohol will then lower your performance exponentially. This, apparently, is true not only with such games as beer pong and darts, but also with work, including, but not limited to, business writing and math equations. The Beer Bell Curve could also be applied within a social framework. A little beer loosens you up around others, a lot of beer knocks you out.
Question: Is this accurate? It makes sense to me, though I’m still having a hard time justifying going through life with a constant buzz.
