Scientific theory of the day

Scientific theory of the day: According to some new research, moderate doses of caffeine can make one more easily convinced by arguments that go against ones beliefs. While the researchers say it works with two regular cups of coffee, I think further laboratory experimentation will show that two Irish coffees will work even better when you’re trying to convince people with arguments that go against their beliefs.
