I just rediscovered this lovely quote & thought it'd be somewhat selfish not to share it .....
...... as explained by Cliff Clavin, of Cheers. One afternoon at Cheers, Cliff Clavin was explaining the Buffalo Theory to his buddy Norm. Here's how it went:
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

However, he forgot to mention that this effect is temporary, usually lasting only until the following morning. :E

Beer and all other forms of alcohol are horrible. Unfortunately, manufacturers still produce the stuff and pub managers and shops still buy it. I told my daughter this after she wanted a taste of my beer and I allowed her a sip :yuk:

I told her that I had to go to the pub to drink my share as I didn't want the other poor folk in there to have to suffer whilst drinking it for me. She believed me for a while but I think I've been rumbled! She pointed a finger at me the other night and said, accusingly: "DADDY! You like that stuff, don't you! :=

This story is just what I needed to replace the previous one - thanks! :ok:
