Researchers at Durham University in England say that alcohol does nothing in the brain to make people seem more attractive.  Rather, they say the area of the brain that controls desire is one of the last affected, but that booze does shut down the section that keeps us from acting on impulses Рperhaps explaining those bad decisions.

French researchers said last year that a couple of drinks actually makes you think one person is better looking: yourself.
