Wine, it gets you drunk, but some aficionados seem to think it's got the antidote in there too. 

Why is that? 

In this video from Vox, they uncork why people think expensive wine is better than the cheap stuff, despite the fact that in blind taste tests, no one really thinks one is much better than the other. As it turns out, wine prices are driven by perception as buyers are influenced by things like price and label. However, as the video also points out, expensive wines sometimes taste really, really unpleasant.

Photographer Takes Photos of People Before and After Three Glasses of Wine and Proves That 'Happy Hour' is Aptly Named

Ahh Happy Hour, that mystical time in the late afternoon that makes you go from the top left picture to the bottom right after a long hard days work. 

This photographer, Marcos Alberti, working on this project for a while and these totally unscientific results are nonetheless entirely conclusive. So get out to that Happy Hour and get that smile on.

While most people in their 20s want credit for acting even remotely like adults, one woman has gone above and beyond what’s asked of someone being a grown up.

After ordering a new refrigerator, Clare decided to risk life and water filter by turning her fridge into a wine dispenser. All it took was a bottle of wine and the cold water filter in her fridge. Simply tilt the bottle into the water dispenser and out comes wine. Life hacks made easy.

It takes a proud adult to risk ruining a brand-new fridge with a move like this, so we commend you, Clare. However, perhaps sensing the immense power at their finger tips, Clare and her boyfriend switched the filter back to water. They told Buzzfeed that their fridge and filter is fine, but what about the copycats? What of the poor filters that will be inevitably be ruined due to the sugary content of wine. Those tubes are going to be sticky for generations.
