Here’s another good justification for drinking between one and 17 glasses of wine every night.  According to a new study, you’re FAR less likely to get bitten by bed bugs if you’re drunk…In the study, a Ph.D. candidate from University of Nebraska-Lincoln found that the higher someone’s blood-alcohol level was, the less likely they were to be bitten by bed bugs.

Bed bugs prefer non-alcoholic blood because it feeds them better.  The bugs who sucked on sober people increased their mass by an average of 100% . . . bugs who sucked on drunk people only went up by 12.5%.

And the heavier they are, the more eggs they can lay.  So it’s not worth their time to suck your blood if you’re filled with alcohol.
