Perhaps you have heard of the phrase "beer goggling" - where alcohol allows you to be attracted to people who you wouldn't have interest in if you were sober.Researchers at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom seem to have proven its existence.

They showed 84 college students pictures of both men and women. Those who had been given alcoholic drinks rated the pictures more attractive.

The researchers believe what you already may have known - alcohol numbs perceptions. And everyone looks the same in the dark.
