Coffee vs Beer: Which Drink Makes You More Creative?
Beer for the idea - Coffee for the execution.

With the knowledge that we have about drugs like alcohol and caffeine, despite their drawbacks it seems that there is supposedly a way to responsibly maximize their benefits.

If that’s true then it makes you wonder, are we missing our full potential by not taking the right drugs at the right time?

Recent studies have found that a blood alcohol level of 0.07
(about 2 drinks!) made the participants better at creative problem-solving tasks but not necessarily working memory tasks where they had to pay attention to things happening in their surroundings (like driving a car).
By reducing your ability to pay attention to the world around you, alcohol frees up your brain to think more creatively.

If you’ve already got an idea or an outline of where you want to go with your project, a cup of coffee would do wonders compared to having a beer to execute on your idea.

"To gain elevation, the vultures made use of artificial thermals — strong, hot updrafts created by the continuous flaring of methane from tall vent pipes. The birds circle-soared in the drafts above the vents, rising to a height of 100-200 meters (328-656 ft.), before gliding off to nearby roosts."

"mortality rates ranging up to 100 percent among bats in affected caves. There is no known cure for the disease, which has afflicted seven bat species so far and has pushed several of them to the brink of regional extinction.

Scientists have estimated the economic value of insect-eating bats to American agriculture at $22 billion annually. Bats also eat tons of insects harmful to forests, and their guano is essential to the survival of extremely rare cave organisms"

Incredible to know that these cases are increasing.
An unusually large number of whales dining in areas off the West Coast also prized by the fishing industry is contributing to an alarming surge ;in the number of cetaceans entangled in crabbing gear.

Introduction
I study habitat fragmentation in relation to extinction.

"In the end we will conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught."
 - Baba Dioum

"I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment... and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn."
 - Henry David Thoreau

"Living wild species are like a library of books still unread. Our heedless destruction of them is akin to burning the library without ever having read its books."
 - John Dingell
