Two guy's told me last year how the sky looked better the more you had to drink.

Is this true or did you see more "Dark Matter" than normal  ;)

Roger and I did find that the more you drank, the more you could see through the bottom of the glass. We didn't believe this at first so had to repeat the experiment so as to get a statistically valid sample. After a while however things took on a slightly out of focus look when the glass was empty so we gave up and did some imaging instead.
