So you’ve had a couple drinks but you’re still basically sober, right? Science says you’re having a better time than you realize. Turns out, you have no idea how drunk you really are.
Australian researchers went to some bars and interviewed patrons in the name of science. They asked the drinkers how drunk they thought they were, then gave them a Breathalyzer test. Most of the test subjects thought they were far more sober than they actually were. And it didn’t matter if it was just an average Joe or someone who sees drunk people all the time, like a cop or a doctor. Everyone underestimated their level of intoxication.
Either that, or the Aussies just can’t old their booze.
