Beauty and the Beer

Here is the formula guys, it is all explained right here:

Some of the nice folks at ManchesterUniversity have worked it out.

Let me try and explain what it means. "beta" (B) is the score. A value that scales the beer goggle effect that basically explains this:

Now coming to the formula:
An -> number of units of alcohol consumed
I guess thisis in pints :D
S -> smokiness of the room (graded from 0-10, where 0 clear air; 10 extremely smoky)
This one sounds suspiciously like an unscientific scale
L -> luminance of 'person of interest' (candelas per square metre; typically 1 pitch black; 150 as seen in normal room lighting)
Vo -> Snellen visual acuity (6/6 normal; 6/12 just meets driving standard)
Basically, the scale used to "measure" your vision
delta (d) -> distance from 'person of interest' (metres; 0.5 to 3 metres)

So, you put in all these values and then you find out the beer goggle effect score.
At less than 1, there is no effect, between 1-50, a person you would normally find unattractive would appear less unattractive. And anything between 50-100, you would find normally non-appealing people beeing seen as attractive. And anything over 100 you will wake up with a one nostriled hedious ass and a throbbing headache. (Basically, you are f$%^&d)

Aah! the wonders of science!!
