      I played this Russian guy in chess one time at his house.  He was murdering me.  Then he proclaimed, "Now vee playz Russian chezz".  He brought out a board with different sized shot-glasses for pieces.  He put beer in his pieces and vodka in mine.  When you take a player's piece you drink.  The idea is to even out who has the advantage by getting them more drunk.

       

      Well, I'm not a drinker.  I kept getting worse.  He kept getting better.

       

      I think he was double the legal limit when we finished and he was still mopping the floor with me.

        Don't ever drink vodka with a Russian.  Might as well go head-to-head with Dale Earnhardt Jr in a car race.

            Yes yes. And never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.

                  My guess is that the beers relax you. And everything works better when you are relaxed.

                    "According to a University of Illinois at Chicago study, men who drank a few beers were better at problem-solving than their sober counterparts."

                     

                     

                    Isn't not caring about your problems anymore technically the same as solving them?

                      You're supposed to say "Tony Stewart" or "Jeff Gordon" or other local stars.

                            Well now.  It depends on "a few".  Some tasks.... say, bowling, have a beer threshold.  A little makes you better... to a point. Over that, and you can't bowl for shit.  This has always been my test to determine "is x a sport?"  If there's a beer threshold where a little makes you better, then no.

                             

                            As for problem solving, I guess it depends on the problem being solved.

                             

                              I can tell you that after "a few" beers, I'm damn good at karaoke. Or at least I sound damn good to me.
