Ranulf and all,
Greetings unto you. If a reader is not Scots, they should certainly wish that they were! Thank you for your good wishes!
"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." - Cliff Clavin
