Uninhibited Goldfish WBAGNFARB.

I can see where this is heading.

Scientists will try creating humans that need only alcohol to survive.

So, they're "less inhibited" because they're "less anxious".
And they're "less anxious" because they ... ?
- look over their shoulder less often?
- talk slower?
- are less jumpy?

If Monty Python had used drunk fish in their fish slapping skit, the fish would have slapped back.
