I bring this article to your attention only to illustrate the longevity of  certain popular myths.

“Drinking a cup of coffee for every cup of spiked eggnog likely won’t help you drive home more safety, a study on drunken mice suggests.”

The wisdom one can find on the internet.  We can all rest easy now that we know with more evidence that we had before that drinking caffeine does not help reduce the effects of intoxication.  Rather, it makes you a jittery drunk as a opposed to just plain ‘ole drunk.

“His advice for holiday revelers is to be responsible and plan ahead by establishing a designated driver, or stop drinking early enough to allow blood-alcohol levels to go down before getting behind the wheel.”
Compare this to the complete anti vaccination lunacy that vaccines cause autism.  It has been proven time and time again that this is not the case, yet the tomfoolery still persists.   Why?  I would suggest the stupid comes can be divided into three categories:  Too lazy, intellectually/research-wise, to0 arrogant to admit they are wrong, or too deluded from the start, as their world view took a left turn somewhere and has never come back to reality-ville.

Thus ended the rant.
