Big-brained potheads

Smoking pot does relax you, scientists say. But is that a good thing?

The heavy users, in other words, reacted to a stressful situation with equanimity and chill even though they weren't stoned at the time of the test. There's an outside chance that some of this effect could be due to self-selection: Perhaps naturally relaxed people are more inclined to become frequent cannabis users? But the effects were observed in a controlled laboratory experiment, making the causal link much stronger than it would have been if the researchers had just relied on, say, pre-existing survey data.

This is somewhat unsurprising: Surveys show that "relaxation" is the No. 1 reason cited by marijuana users for why pot is their drug of choice. This research confirms that they're probably not just deluding themselves and that over the long term, marijuana use does perhaps lead to a somewhat more relaxed outlook on life.

People who are more stressed may have smaller brains and worse memories, according to a new study

In a new study, published in the journal Neurology, people with higher levels of cortisol in their blood — the stress hormone — had impaired memories and smaller brains.

Tiny-brained Donald Trump can stand living with his wife because he doesn't remember the Cuban guy fucking her in the kitchen every day and most nights.

Then again, his tiny brain inspires him to shout DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE! DIE! when his KFC gets cold and pound his head off of the White House dining room table.

Short term memory is overrated.

Wrong: he's a Mikey Dee guy through and through.
