Women + Smarter Brains = More Booz

A new study reveals that the better a woman does in school,
the more likely it is she will grow up and abuse alcohol.

Researchers from the London School of Economics tracked the lives of roughly 10,000 men and women born during the same week in 1970. They discovered that women who scored “medium or high” marks in primary school were 2.1 times more likely to drink every day as adults than their less academically successful counterparts. Intelligent guys also drink more, but the correlation isn’t nearly as extreme.

There are two explanations the researchers offered for this phenomenon. One is that brainy women often delay motherhood, giving them more time to develop a social life based on alcohol consumption; the other is that higher-achieving females are more likely to work in male-dominated fields, which have cultures that are heavy on drinking.

Or, of course, there is the simple explanation: Smart women are driven to drink because they realize that we are always just staring at their breasts.
