We may unknowingly search out partners with similar alcohol consumption habits
Researchers say one human genotype is linked to an individual's alcohol habits as well as their partner's, suggesting that people may search for mates with similar consumption habits.
TORONTO – Spouses with similar drinking routines may not have settled into those communal habits as a part of coupledom.
Researchers from the University of Bristol in the U.K. compared the genetics and self-reported alcohol consumption of more than 47,000 couples. They concluded that one genotype – rs1229984 – appears to be linked not only to their own alcohol consumption habits, but also to their partner's.

Air rage: Why are flight crews dealing with more unruly passengers?Statistics recorded by the International Air Transport Association suggest incidents involving unruly airplane passengers are on the rise. Because the flight service has become increasingly bad. Service sucks...you are nickle and dimed for everything, and they are trying to cram more people into the same spot.
