My GF's former mother-in-law did exactly that, and was deadly serious about it. She had one of those novelty wine glasses that would hold an entire bottle, and was very diligent in drinking the one glass of wine per day that's supposed to be good for one's health.

The NY Times today had a science article about counting.  Chimpanzees and many species count better than humans and Norwegians, although counting itself is very primitive.  The Times reported that a human from 15,000 years ago could probably be understood by Neanderthal neighbors when discussing small numbers.  The brain area for mathematics, it seems, has little to do with the brain area for linguistics.

 

 

As a social scientist married to an engineer, I can verify this statement.
