It does end up that having a little bit of booze does not do too much damage, in fact in the case of Japanese scientists who were trying to make super conductors found it to be really helpful. This is surprising news to us all, but it is true. They were in the process of making super conductors when they decided to have a little party while the materials soaked. They brought wine, whiskey, and other various different alcoholic beverages with them. As they began to drink they decided to soak some of the materials in the alcohol which they had. As it turns out wine and Shochu really help to conduct the materials. Shochu in fact increased conductivity by 23% and win increased conductivity by a whopping 63%. I guess it does turn out that alcohol does somewhat seem help in many different scientific discoveries.
