Drink and perish

Results of an extremely unscientific, yet published paper, find:

Scientists who drink more beer publish less!

The New York Times article describes a study in which a (convenience?) sample of scientists suggests that those who drink more publish less. One question that comes to mind is: how representative of scientists as a whole is the academic community of Czech orthinologists? I am guessing (burp!) not very. Plus, anecdotal evidence suggests it just ain't true. I can sure think of some boozehound publishing fiends, as well as teetotalers with little work to their credit. But, that is my own convenience sample.
