Being drunk is way better, that has the oposite effect on productivity: it narrows my focus so I can easily work on one single thing and really get into it. Coordination and judgment suffers, but it's a lot easier to slip past the usual brainblocks and get the work done.
So true. The papers I had written after drinking less than one ounce of wine came out more eloquent than after drinking highly caffeinated beverages. It has to do with bring less stressed and focusing on the ideas rather than the time crunch. I can be extremely productive when I have had a bit of alcohol, but if I have too much, I just fall asleep.
I wonder if some fathers really do tell their daughters this…. “No going out and NO BOYFRIENDS until you are MARRIED!!!”. Saw it on a meme site somewhere. I personally doubt this. Kinda defeats the purpose of passing on your genes to the next generation, especially if they are the only child…. O_O
