Bar stool myths

Interesting item on the Independent website today: Ten bar stool myths about booze. Good to see they’ve got “lager is cheaper than water” at Number 9 and give a favourable mention to the Devil’s Kitchen. And Number 2 says that alcohol does not actually kill brain cells and, according to recent scientific research, moderate drinking can actually promote better thinking and reasoning skills.


  1. I often wish the bar stool was a myth, but I think we've exhausted that one!

  2. #3 - Alcohol makes you more susceptible to the cold. So going outside regularly would not be a pleasant experience, then? Hmm.


  3. Going outside is a pleasant experience.
    Just not when paying for alcohol a huge premium while alternatives around.
