      When I think back to situations where there was a foul smell, I got realy easily annoyed and angry, especially if it was something you couldn’t easily escape.
      Maybe people just get annoyed more easily when in annoying situations?

      Maybe this is why people are so much more bigoted in the South.

      Fifty-seven people participated in the study? I kind of doubt the statistical significance of such a small sample size.

      A sample size of 57 is nowhere near enough to come to any actual scientific conclusions…

      So in other words unhappy people want others to be unhappy and are intolerant? Huh….WOW next they will uncover the meaning of LIFE! http://www.exposedfiles.com/republicans-old-money-category-list/61-why-do-some-middle-class-people-vote-republican It’s actually something that has been studied in many forms. Here’s a similar study.

      “Those in the vomit-smelling room were far less tolerant of same-sex marriage and gay relationships.”

      And not too suprisingly, they felt right at home! :p
