Women who drink more are smarter, according to experts
Yeah we’ll drink to that
The more educated women are, the more likely they are to drink more, according to studies on the link between drinking habits and intelligence.
University educated women in the UK drank 86 per cent more than women of the same age who did not go to university. Intelligent women are more likely to be heavy drinkers and more likely to drink daily, and are also more likely to be alcoholics.
However men across all educational backgrounds still drink 11.1 per cent more than women overall.
Though for women, heavy drinking is associated with intelligence, for men it is the other way round. Less clever men drink more, probably because men who drink a lot are more likely to be binge drinkers. However the study also found that men who abstain from drinking alcohol altogether have lower IQs.
There’s still plenty of contradictory evidence surrounding the correlation between alcohol and intelligence and a number of studies only focus on male drinking habits. It’s unlikely that drinking more will actually make you more intelligent, but at least now if anyone tells you that you drink too much you can tell them it’s a sign that you have a high IQ.
For now, we might as well raise our glasses to that.

The words and pictures that Millie stands "accused" of posting are nowhere to be seen on her actual Twitter account, nor is there…
Everyone you’ll inevitably run into when you go home for Thanksgiving
Your hometown’s greatest hits
by Katie Way
Thanksgiving is a relatively simple holiday, especially if you toss aside all of the weird, shaky historical context. Basically, you go home and eat a long, early dinner with your family members and then watch football instead of the Godfather marathon that's on AMC every year. But since that straightforward premise brings everybody home at…
This girl just invented the most genius way to sneak snacks into the movies, and I’m truly in awe of her intellect
Thomas Edison could never
by Katie Way
I've said it before and I'll say it again: women are smarter than men. And now, thanks to Twitter user @AngelaBrisk, next time I say that and some dude tries to challenge me I'll have definitive proof that I'm right. If you've ever tried to bring outside food into a movie theater, you know that…
