Can drinking make a man smarter?

A study from the University of Illinois shows that when given alcohol, men can solve almost 40 percent more problems than their sober counterparts.

Those who drank two pints of beer also answered questions more quickly.

Researchers say it's true when men have only had a few drinks -- not much more. The research is in the Journal of Consciousness and Cognition.
