Beer blindness put to mathematics… the forumla of regret.
So, scientists over in the United Kingdom believe they can explain “beer goggles”. As a preface, “goggles” are not referring to the common use of the word (something you put on to see under water), it also means ‘a look of amazement; or looking stupidly at something’. The dumbfounded awestruck look… you know the one.
KEY TO FORMULA
An = number of units of alcohol consumed
S = smokiness of the room (graded from 0-10, where 0 clear air; 10 extremely smoky)
L = luminance of ‘person of interest’ (candelas per square metre; typically 1 pitch black; 150 as seen in normal room lighting)
Vo = Snellen visual acuity (6/6 normal; 6/12 just meets driving standard)
d = distance from ‘person of interest’ (metres; 0.5 to 3 metres)
Seriously… so is this the mathematical equation of regret?
