At first I thought this was a joke, and a good one at that, but then I
looked into it and realized it was true!
"People with liberal views tended to have increased grey matter in the
anterior cingulated cortex, a region of the brain linked to decision-
making, in particular when conflicting information is being presented.
Previous research showed that electrical potentials recorded from this
region during a task that involves responding to conflicting information
were bigger in people who were more liberal or left wing than people who
were more conservative.
"Conservatives, meanwhile, found increased grey matter in the amygdala, an
area of the brain associated with processing emotion. This difference is
consistent with studies which show that people who consider themselves to
be conservative respond to threatening situations with more aggression than
do liberals and are more sensitive to threatening facial expressions."
On the first day God created the sun - so the Devil countered
and created sunburn. On the second day God created sex. In
response the Devil created marriage. On the third day God created
an economist. This was a tough one for the Devil, but in the end
and after a lot of thought he created a second economist!
