“In vino veritas” is not quite true,
unless by “true” we really mean “sincere.”
While alcohol can dis-inhibit you,
it won’t increase your honesty at all.
The qualities you tried to hide from view –
embarrassments and actions causing shame –
are given leave by booze to ooze and spew.
So bias and stupidity are clear,
but nothing wise or useful can ensue.

(Magic 9)
