+ - I'll Drink To That: Socializing For The Win?

The Living Fractal writes: "Yahoo! Business has an article about workplace socializing. Apparently, those who drink alcohol and socialize make more money on average. From the article:

"Regular drinkers make 10% to 14% more money than those who do not drink, according to the study, conducted by the Journal of Labor Research, published quarterly by the Department of Economics at George Mason University, and the Reason Foundation, a Los Angeles-based think tank."

This article spawns a few questions. Do those "regular drinkers" end up spending that extra 10-14% on booze? Who here is a social drinker? And have you noticed this in your workplace?"
