Spit Take

Is this really new? Studying "Business and Legal English" at the University of Edinburgh in the 90's, I remember being told that "according to a study" you speak a foreign language most fluent after two shot of vodka. One shot isn't enough to free your unconsious knowledge and to help you associate freely, and three shots are to much. According too what I've been told, they choose shots of vodka to make the results reproduceable more easily than with beer or wine.

This is all anecdotal, of course, since I never actually read the study.


In related news, I hope this
