If you've got a thicker amygdala, the ancient, more primitive part of your brain, chances are you're a conservative.
This is a light-hearted study which may or may not have significance. LOL!
Brain thickness determines political leaning: study
"Neuroscientists are examining whether political allegiances are hard-wired into people after finding evidence that the brains of conservatives are a different shape to those of left-wingers.
Scans of 90 students' brains at University College London (UCL) uncovered a "strong correlation" between the thickness of two particular areas of grey matter and an individual's views.
Self-proclaimed right-wingers had a more pronounced amygdala - a primitive part of the brain associated with emotion while their political opponents from the opposite end of the spectrum had thicker anterior cingulates.
The research was carried out by Geraint Rees director of the UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience who said he was "very surprised" by the finding, which is being peer reviewed before publication next year."
Presidents and Vacations
"But...but...Barack Obama's golfing and the world's in a mess!"
The critics of vacationing presidents only notice these things when the guy from the other political party is the president, and HE's always doing it wrong!
BTW, presidents are NEVER on vacation because they bring the duties and responsibilities of the presidency with them wherever they go.
But the dear right wingers never miss an opportunity to bash this president because it's what keeps their fires lit.
