Maybe I should save this for april 1st. but lets not forget vodka, after all if beer is good vodka should be better plus it is more efficient at delivering what you want. Oh and don't don't forget crack the super caffeine, all of this in moderation of course.

According to the buffalo theory, drinking beer makes you smarter. A herd of buffalo can only move as quickly as its slowest, weakest members, the thinking goes. When those members die off, the net speed of the herd increases. Similarly, the performance of your brain is limited by the slowest, weakest cells. Beer kills off those brain cells, so...drinking beer actually makes you smarter. Kristin

I was hoping someone would mention this. I have personally experienced the Ballmer Peak during development of one of my most successful products.

When I started my career in 1974 it was with a engineering consulting organization, Structural Dynamics Research Corporation. The companmy was living in several buildings, oneof which had been a retaurant with a bar. This building was used to support a near continuous seminar program, ans the bar was a very useful component of that support. It followed that the company's extraordinarily hard -working engineers could help themselves to the elixer on tap anytime after hours while they were putting in their 50-80 hour workweeks. When the company built a grand new headquarters, the seminar facility had a bar, and the tradition continued. People would meet in the bar for meetings, for brainstorming and to socialize when they were finished for the day. This atmosphere was terrific for recruiting, for customer relations and morale. Eventually, after the original management team had retired and passed the torch (I was long gone by then) this traditon fell victim to the lawyers. It was a great and treasured tradition while it lasted.

A standards committee I work with has an annual face to face meeting where we plan on an evening with one's favorite alcoholic beverages. A lot of tension is dissipated this way, and typically some important concessions and compromises are made. People are also a lot more open about their fears and concerns when they've had a couple drinks with dinner. Instead of tightly following the party line, many will relax and explain why they say these things. We all leave the event with fonder memories and a clearer understanding of some of the various motives and skills each of the members have to offer. It's worth every penny.

The Martian: A Delightful Exploration of Math, Mars & Feces

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
