well i’ll be a parrot’s cousin

Science News Online reports:

“People with generally positive outlooks show greater resistance to developing colds than do individuals who rarely revel in upbeat feelings, a new investigation finds.”

In unrelated news, it was recently discovered that being sick all the time “sucks”, and that 80% of chronically sick people were found to be “generally pessimistic”.


  1. As a person who currently has a cold, I would agree that it sucks! however normally I’m considered a Pollyanna (the term “pollyanna” entered the language to describe someone who is cheerfully optimistic) by most people, so I’m not sure I agree.

  10. "We don't use G.A. …, do we?""The answer was: No"Also: es handelt sich um eine Frage wie sie typischerweise im Englischen gestellt wird – und die Verneinung erfüllt im normalen Sprachgebrauch nicht das Merkmal der doppelten Verneinung im Deutschen.

  12. Eisenmann – zgadzam sie z Toba. Tekst jest mocno przesadzony, po prostu tendencyjnie napisany.Kolej jest, jaka jest. Ludzie z niej korzystajacy sa rozni. Zdarzaja sie ciekawe osoby i takie, jak opisala autorka. Wybieranie samych negatywnych przykladow jest … wlasnie, czym jest?
