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.

The Tea Tee Bag – Hanger Tea – is one of those designs that can make one say,

“I should have thought of that”.  You didn’t…  (Designer) Soon Mo Kang did. We Like It!

If the Hanger Tea were to be submitted as an entry to tea-packaging-awards (if such a thing existed), I say it would win hands down! I can’t think of a better or more obvious way to pack teabags than this hanger & T-shirt design. It’s a funny take on how the simple motion of hanging a used teabag on the rim of your cup, be done. Color-coded for different varieties, the hangers are rather cute and so are the tea-shirts!

Here’s another wacky kanji T-shirt featuring beautiful characters penned with a traditional writing brush (fude pen). A parody of famous shima-bito (Island-Person) designs from Okinawa, this shirt proudly proclaims you as a sake-bito, literally a “person of sake” or someone who loves to drink all forms of alcohol. (Sake, pronounced sah-KAY, can refer to normal rice wine as well as all other forms of alcohol.) Hiragana characters are written beside the kanji to illustrate the pronunciation and give the shirt a unique Japanese look and feel. A great wacky Japanese T-shirt for everyone who likes to party, recommended for retailers located near universities.
