Who is diminished more by being constantly inebriated, the smart guy or one less so?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26834points) January 12th, 2017

You have two friends, Larry Lunchmeat and Joe Schmuckatelli, are close in age, but spend 805 of the day getting high or drunk. Larry Lunchmeat has an IQ of 87 while Joe Schmuckatelli has an IQ of 128, who is diminished greater by being inebriated, the one who is less intelligent, or the one who is greater?

Since inebriation does not affect intelligence, but affects other things, they are both affected equally.

They both do a disservice to themselves. IQ has no bearing here.

But doesn’t it affect how one uses the intelligence they have, it is not all physical.
