A recent study has concluded that the world's smartest people are also the heaviest drinkers, meaning you might not have to feel quite as bad about all the dumb stuff you did when you were out last night.

The study, which was carried out at the London School of Economics and followed the lives of thousands of 39-year-olds, showed that women with degrees are almost twice as likely to drink daily as their counterparts who opted against university.

The research found that women with educational qualifications were 71 percent more likely to drink most days, while men were 49 percent more likely.

"Good language skills reduce the likelihood of peer rejection [...] higher social activity predicts more frequent drinking in adolescence," wrote the authors.
