Excuse me while I digress to provincial politics for a moment.
Ontario Premier Dalton McWimpy, oops, sorry, McGuinty is defending his Liberal government's $150,000 grant to study the 'sex lives of flying squirrels'. Apparently this is a global warming issue. Well, yeah, I guess if there are lots of squirrels having sex in a dense area, things could warm up a bit...
Anyway, another study has apparently been funded to investigate why people pay attention to emotionally expressive faces and how negative faces hold attention more than positive ones. That one will cost us $100,000. Seems like a bargain.
Let me tell you something, Dalton. I can save you a lot of money and give you the answer to that last one right now. Negative faces hold attention more than positive ones because when people see an angry face, for example, they have to decide whether to run or fight. Just have a look at the taxpayers in Ontario, Dalton, and you will have an excellent case study to draw from. I would suggest you run far away.
Aw, you're all nuts anyway.
