[MOL] natural selection

The following is an actual excerpt from this month's Forbe's Magazine

> >A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo, and when 
the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are 
killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because 
the general speed and health of the whole is maintained or even improved by 
the regular culling of the weakest members.

> >In much the same way, the human brain can operate only as fast as the 
slowest brain cells through which the electrical signals pass.  Recent 
epidemiological studies have shown that while excessive intake of alcohol 
kills off brain cells, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.

> >Thus, regular consumption of beer helps eliminate the weaker cells, 
constantly making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.

> >The result of this in-depth study verifies and validates the causal link 
between all-weekend parties and job related performance. It also explains 
why, after a few short years of leaving a university and getting married, 
most professionals cannot keep up with the performance of the new graduates.

> >Only those few that stick to the strict regimen of voracious alcoholic 
consumption can maintain the intellectual levels that they achieve during 
their college years.

> >So, this is a call to arms. As our country is losing its technological 
edge, we must not shudder in our homes.

> >Get back into the pubs.

> >Quaff that pint.

> >Your company and country need you to be at your peak, and you shouldn't 
deny yourself the career that you could have. Take life by the bottle and be 
all that you can be.
> >Forward this to all of your friends, acquaintances and co-workers that
> >may be in danger of losing their edge.

> >Do it for the team!
