A tribute to Dionysos

”Another round” by the Danish film director Thomas Vinterberg is the story of four friends who (inspired by a theory from the Norwegian psychiatrist Finn Skårderud that modest intoxication would open our minds to the world around us) set out to "test", that if they maintain a 0.05% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) during work hours, it will improve their creativity and mindset. Several studies suggest, that food in the stomach before drinking not only leads to a lowering of the peak BAC but also boosts the rate of ethanol metabolism, and other findings indicate, that the BAC is higher after drinking vodka/tonic than beer or wine after fasting.
