Here’s a new Youtube hit. This Russian drunkard needs to get past a fence. Probably because he seems to have run out of beer and we presume there is a liquor store on ‘our’ side. It’s inspiring to see how dedicated he is to get to the other side given the state he is in. If there’s anything we can learn from this man it’s that life is full of challenges and we can overcome them if we just stay patient. Then an opportunity might just present itself. Enjoy the video!

Have you ever wondered why alcohol makes women all touchy and clingy? Or why drunken men may cheat on their girlfriends? If so you’ll probably love this study performed by scientists from the Oregon University (USA). They checked out what happened when they offered alcohol to couples of prairie voles. These small rodents are known to be extremely faithful. Once they have chosen a life partner they stick to a lifestyle of complete monogamy. For that reason they are often used for social monogamy experiments. In this experiment with young couples it turned out that the female voles wanted to cuddle more when drunk, where the their male partners got in the mood to stray and try new partners.

Some surreal news from the ‘Big Apple’, as the New York Post revealed that serious damage was done to 30 Manhattan court cases. Apparently an alcoholic stenographer named Daniel Kochanski (43) was so sick of the boring work that kept him from drinking that he decided to write it down. Instead of the trial dialogue the stenographer just pressed random keys and repeatedly wrote ‘I hate my job, I hate my job, I hate my job’. Although Kochanski got fired in March 2012, a huge amount of damage control had to be done. Judges needed to have ‘reconstruction hearings’ to get at least something about these cases on paper.
The only Russian leader since the fall of the emperial family in 1918 that gained great popularity abroad was Boris Yeltsin. Not in the last place because he had the reputation of a happy drunk. His public appearances while highly intoxicated were simply disarming. Even to the most hardcore Yankees that were still clinging on to the Cold War long after the perestroika. While his politics were often criticized, nobody can deny that this happy drunkard brought East and West a lot closer after decades of distrust.
