beer goggles formula

From The English Guy’s blog @ http://www.thex.com/rd/

Researchers at the University of Manchester in England (where else?) have come up with a formula for the beer goggles effect.

* An = number of units of alcohol consumed
* S = smokiness of the room (graded from 0-10, where 0 clear air; 10 extremely smoky)
* L = luminance of ‘person of interest’ (candelas per square metre; typically 1 pitch black; 150 as seen in normal room lighting)
* Vo = Snellen visual acuity (6/6 normal; 6/12 just meets driving standard)
* d = distance from ‘person of interest’ (metres; 0.5 to 3 metres)
