The FAA ran a study on the effects of alcohol on pilots back in the
70's, but they were so upset with the findings that they never
published the results. They found that a LOW level of blood alcohol
actually improved response times (both mental and physical). If I
remember correctly, there may have been a let-down effect after the
blood level dropped. I suspect that any benefical effects will be
temporary, and that the body will pay a price in the long run.
