Five skills that are improved by drinking alcohol

Drink a bottle of wine to unleash your peak dancing ability

Nobody ever wants to get on the dancefloor sober, and with good reason too. Unless you’ve first consumed a bottle of wine, you could be falling short of your boogying potential.

A study published last month by Professor David Nutt and The Times asked 55 people to play an Xbox dancing game and monitored their score and their alcohol consumption.

Those who were sober scored an average of 4,400 on the game, while those who’d had six drinks scored 6,200. After that things quickly go downhill, with participants who’d had more than six drinks scoring an average of 4,000.

In a particularly damning comment, The Times team notes that drinking more than six drinks doesn’t necessarily scupper your performance. They said: “It might not be that very drunk partygoers are bad dancers, merely that bad dancers require a lot more drink before dancing.” Ouch!
