Rationality Quotes: November 2010

I know this is well known, but to supplement the T-Rex:

A mathematician is a device for turning coffee into theorems.

-Alfréd Rényi/Paul Erdős

Does this http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2009/08/090831130751.htm suffer same problem as:

12 healthy male volunteers were chosen to study what is "just right" amount of beer for driving car. These men consumed doses of beer at 2 bottles, 4 bottles, 8 bottles, and 16 bottles per day for two weeks for each dose amount, with beer being the only alcohol in their diet. Surely the 2 bottles would win, but it definitely ain't the "just right" amount.

Am I missing something in the sciencedaily news, or did they really end up to that conclusion, of 200mg from that test?
