Drunk People Are Better at Creative Problem Solving

You have more time to think when you're crawling around on the bathroom floor.

Considering the creative "solutions" drunks usually come up with, I'm not sure this is a plus.

Any time I've walked into a dive bar I could tell it was full of geniuses.

Drunk people are even more creative creating problems, judging from my experience.

They also tend to have more problems to solve, so they get a lot of practice.

If you need to think outside the box, a few happy-hour drinks or a martini at lunch could be beneficial.

If you need some time to think, many drunk people have found that falling on the floor works for them.

So that's why they do it, right?

Kind of a 'time out' for grownups.

Cliff Clavin explained this on Cheers.
Alcohol kills off the sick and useless brain cells allowing the healthy cells to flourish, much like wolves thinned herds of buffalo of the sick and lame.
This is why everyone feels so much smarter after a few beers.
