Please explain why I frequently have 1 beer or 1 glass of wine in an afternoon or evening. I weigh 205 pounds and this doesn't intoxicate me at all. I find this behavior common amongst my friends and family.

Also, maybe you should read about the history of fermentation. It's a natural, self-limiting process that preserves and concentrates calories. That might have been useful for something else, no?

Anything that lets us make transistors faster without paying a huge cost in leakage (power consumption when not switching) is a win. It sucks to go from one process node to the next and get almost no performance benefit unless you're willing to pay a leakage penalty. SOI rocks, but not everybody has it. Therefore, I'm a bit more excited about graphene than you are.
