Yes, our brain rewards us for being closed-minded dicks.

Here is an article that deals with how your brain's flaws are exploited. (by your boss, advertisers, politicians, etc)

Like the subject says, don't let your brain be your own worst enemy.


@ Prodigy... That green mod is getting a high from intentionally dismissing information. He don't like me. Beef is something that can be cooked.
What is up with you guy? You keep linking the same website in your posts, I'm starting to think you are here to spam your website. Big NO NO if it's true.......

The only problem here is that alexcmia apparently believes the things he reads on those parody sites. That's a bit disturbing. . .








EDIT:

OK, somebody went and removed that goofball's posts and made it look like I started this stupid thread.
