The effect of drugs, upbringing and other already existing ways of altering us is a whole area I haven't really put much consideration into. Would I would love to see is how the different alterations stack up against each other, for how different a person's upbringing would need to have been to be equivalent to 1 or 2 glasses or alcohol, or the genetic variations needed to result in the same.

Also, what limits are there on what can be done with changes in upbringing, drugs, the sort of technology we have now, and the genetic difference between two people.
