Your real accent comes out when you’re drunk – The more alcohol you consume, the harder it becomes for the brain to control the way you pronounce words.

A study in the journal Current Biology shows that newborn babies have accents. The melody of an infant’s cry matches its mother tongue. The cry of an infant born to a French-speaking family will end in rising note, while the cry of an infant born in German family will favor a falling melody.
