Beer Goggles, Explained: The Formula!

A few days ago I linked to the social science finding that alcohol consumption makes the opposite sex appear more attractive. Turns out there is a mathematical formula that explains this, which shows that math really is the language of romance. Some nuggets:

Non-appealing people become suddenly attractive between [a beer google score of] 51 and 100. At more than 100, someone not considered attractive looks like a super model.

[But], A poll showed that 68% of people had regretted giving their phone number to someone to whom they later realised they were not attracted.

Hat tip: Prof. J. Jackson Barlow of Juniata College.

Oh Steve, this is off topic.

Have you taken a look at LEGACY OF ASHES, it's about the CIA.

The guy has a take on TEAM B that doesn't jive with what I recall, and your take in Volume I of THE AGE OF REAGAN.

I was wondering if you could address it just a bit, maybe in a post.

Could you clear up what was the final judgement on TEAM B? Where were they right, where were they wrong? Or were they wrong, but still less wrong than the A Team.

I'd appreciate it.
