Counting money can make you feel better.

Check out these short articles on why researchers think that counting money makes people feel better, and how giving caffeine to babies can cause lifelong sleep and breathing problems.

Found them while searching for recent discoveries online. I’m going to give a plug to the Faculty of 1000 which has brought together over 5000 top scientists and clinicians worldwide to help sift through the myriad of information being published in the life sciences to highlight and evaluate key articles (like those I’ve referenced above).

Take a free trial or stay tuned for posts based on information we find on F1000.

  • Counting money is an expression of madness from the tiny minority of humanity (ie, thieves of the highest order, scoundrels and mad men) who dishonestly commandeer a lion’s share of the world’s wealth, depravedly ‘bonus’ themselves for doing so, dishonorably make the rules by which all human beings live and deplorably rule the world primarily for the own benefit of themselves and their minions.

    Words to live by from these self-proclaimed Masters of the Universe among us:

    Go forth and multiply. We Masters rule. Forget about humanity.

    Plunder, gorge yourselves and hoard ’til you are sated. Satisfy your unfulfilled wishes. Greed rules. Forget about humanity.

    Build McMansions, pleasure centers, hideaways from the world, skyscrapers, faster cars, bigger cars, mega-yachts and polluting aircraft for personal aggrandizement and gratification. Greed rules and rules absolutely. Forget about humanity.

    In times of danger to self and others, with a single exception, you have an inviolate “duty to warn”. In the “stand alone” case the rule is to be set aside: You can forget about humanity.
