Maybe the person who came up with frozen beer foam was the better problem solver.

  • Print

Interesting couple of news stories today both about alcohol:

1) A study shows that drinking alcohol could make you a better problem solver. 

2) A new product from Japan:  Soft Serve Beer Foam

Soft-serve foam is essentially frozen beer that cools your beer without diluting it as it melts.

The study on alcohol suggests that with just a little alcohol your mind is relaxed just enough to allow unorthodox solutions to problems.  It's something with which those who meditate might agree.  My mother would tell me "sleep on it".  So there you have it.....a more productive workplace may involve a little alcohol and more naps.  I'd write more but I've gone past the "little" alcohol stage (study recommends less than .075 BAC) and now feel a need for a snooze.
