When Ogden Nash comment that “candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker,” he was most definitely talking about alcohol as the liquid panty remover. It’s supposedly faster and more effective than with conversation, flowers or even dick jokes. Give a girl a shot of tequila and she’ll be giggling puddle of uninhibited goo the moment it hits her bloodstream, while men can slam back the rest of the bottle and still be ready for anything.
What Science says :
It’s true, but bot for the reason you’re thinking, which is most likely body size, right?
According to researchers, the real reason why women can’t hold their liquor as well as men is because men and women have very different water to fat ratios to their bodies. Men’s bodies are made up of about 52percent. While this doesn’t sound all that important, it basically means that male biology acts like a cheating bastard of a bartender, watering down every drink a guy consumes nearly 10 percent more than a woman’s internal barkeep.
Women are also lacking in the liver department. Specifically, they produce less of the liver enzyme dehydrogenate, which is that magical substance that converts alcohol into an inactive state and ensures you’re sober by the time Monday morning rolls around. Because they have less of the enzyme, women also feel the effects of alcohol much faster than men and it hits them harder.
So there’s a medical reason why there’s a drunk coed at every nightclub who will drunkenly protest she’s only had one little drink just before she passes out on the bar and shows everyone her business. A MEDICAL REASON, we tell you.
