So as we all know alcohol is bad for you right?
It destroys yours brains thinking power and makes you addicted and oblivious to your environment.
* ON THE BRAIN The organ most sensitive to alcohol is the brain. Alcohol affects the entire body, but its effects on the functions of the brain are
the most noticeable —and to the person who is drinking, the most important. People drink alcohol because of the way it makes them feel, ignoring the
damaging effects on the brain itself.
The brain reacts to alcohol in stages.
The first portion of the brain to be affected is the cerebrum — the outermost layer, which is responsible for controlling the senses, speech,
understanding, and judgment. Alcohol depresses first the parts of the brain that normally inhibit or control actions and emotions. It appears as if
alcohol —although it is a depressant —is acting as a stimulant because, as these higher centers of the brain are knocked out. the drinker feels
liberated from moral and legal restrictions. The loss of these restraints can cause exhilaration and loss of inhibitions. The alcohol continues to
depress brain functions, resulting in slurred speech, unsteady walk, blurry vision, and loss of co-ordination.
Drinkers often feel that their manual skills have been improved because their judgment has been impaired, while in reality their reaction times are
slowed and their muscle coordination is less efficient. Next. the drinker experiences various exaggerations of the emotions that can range from
violence and aggressiveness to tearfulness and withdrawal. If a person continues to drink, the body protects itself from further damage by falling
asleep or "passing out". Alcohol destroys brain cells which, unlike the blood cells it also destroys, are irreplaceable. Alcohol deteriorates the
memory as well as the ability to learn new things.
This is allowed and heavily taxed of which barley any goes into fixing its problems or its popularity.
Now i ask you this, if we cant drink alcohol till we are 18/21 (UK/USA) and all our lives based on your exam results at those ages but then are
introduced to alcohol, is it not likely at 25, 30, 35+ we performs CONSIDERABLY below these tested levels and even our experience since work,
Seems like an odd system to allow a basis for life performance since basically everything changes the first few years into your career if you are
lucky enough to have one.
What do you think?
EDIT: i should add that the end diploma is a combined exam result with a bias to their forte, for example "High pass, science"
