    Humans Crave Violence Just Like Sex

    New research on mice shows the brain processes aggressive behavior as it does other rewards. Mice sought violence, in fact, picking fights for no apparent reason other than the rewarding feeling.

    The mouse brain is thought to be analogous to the human brain in this study, which could shed light on our fascination with brutal sports as well as our own penchant for the classic bar brawl.


    In fact, the researcher say, humans seem to crave violence just like they do sex, food or drugs.

    This explains a lot. But we already knew this, didn't we?

    Ah, maybe this explains all the arguementation that goes on here at Curecare, the instinctive need to fight.

    WHO ASKED YOU?

    J/k - no doubt that some of our scraps push that reward button. I think this is fascinating. Maybe we will someday learn to rewire our brains through meditation. Imagine a society where everybody wasn't going around locked and loaded waiting to get their rocks off.

    I think when a "Orgasmatron" like in the movie "Sleeper" is discovered, it will help out a great deal .
