Drink Beer for Big Ideas, Coffee to Get Them Done…

Coffee versus beer graphicAt least that’s what this item at lifehacker says. I haven’t had coffee since early afternoon, so I don’t have the mental chops to properly evaluate these claims. And I haven’t had a beer today, so I can’t come up with a brilliant response. A few take-aways, though:

  1. It says that one time you would do better without either coffee OR beer, is when doing ” detail-oriented or analytical projects like your finances.” No wonder I hate balancing my checkbook, or doing taxes.
  2. “Eureka moments” come from a certain part of the brain — “a small spot above your right ear responsible for moments of insight.” For some reason, that reminds me of the old TV cliche where a character gets hit on the head and loses his memory, and someone has to hit him on the head again for him to regain it (I think it was usually a guy).  How many boys tried this and left a companion with irreversible brain damage, I wonder? (As a former boy, I have to believe it would be a boy thing to actually try this, rather than a girl thing). Also, why did this occur to me? And please don’t hit me above the right ear to help me discover the answer.
  3. To get the benefits described in the article, it says to use coffee and alcohol “always in moderation.” That doesn’t sound very writerly. At least not fiction writing. Or advertising writing.
  4. People sure seem to have a lot of fun in comments sections.

Written entertainment for the digital age.
