“Dirty sink? What dirty sink?”
The news cycle seems to have missed this when it came out in 2014, but it’s being reported now.
According to an international team of scientists at Virginia Tech University, your reaction to disgusting images is almost certain to reveal your political ideology (https://www.biospace.com/article/around-the-web/liberal-or-conservative-brain-responses-to-disgusting-images-help-reveal-political-leanings-virginia-tech-study-/). In fact, one reaction to one disgusting image is 95% predictive of a person’s politics. How about that!
Simply stated, Republicans and conservatives react adversely to images of maggots, mutilated carcasses, or a sinkful of rotting garbage, but the same images don’t much bother Democrats and liberals.
Well, really–if the imagined (thankfully!) image of Hillary Clinton as president isn’t going to turn you off, what is? If only Chuck Schumer were as easy to get rid of as a sinkful of garbage.
It’s fun to watch the scientists trying to explain this in Darwinian terms, with fairy tales about long-ago cavemen learning not to eat stuff that the maggots had already started in on.
Look–if you like transgenderism, two guys getting “married,” San Francisco sidewalks heaped with human feces, Barak Obama as a sage, and the whole idea of global government, you already like disgusting things. A bunch of roadkill rotting away in the sun is hardly going to put you off.
I hope we didn’t have to pay a lot to find out this scientific thing that everybody already knew.
But now, at least, it’s Settled Science! And you libs have got to embrace it, or else be revealed as hate criminals and anti-science biggits.
