    Scientists Discover That Conservatives Are Brain-Dead

  • During the test, an electroencephalograph recorded activity in the anterior cingulated cortex, a part of the brain involved with the process of stopping the brain from following a well-worn path when something has changed (stopping you from driving your car into an unexpected “Road Closed” sign on your way home from work, for example).
