Your Doctor Should be Listening To AC/DC
A new study by Heidelberg University in Germany reveals that surgeons, who listen to AC/DC while operating are more accurate and efficient than surgeons, who don't. Surgeons, who listen to ''Highway to Hell'' and ''TNT'' reduced their incision time from 236 seconds to 139 seconds.
Lead researcher Cui Yang says, “Our results show that both soft rock and hard rock can enhance surgical performance. For hard rock music, the positive effect was especially noticeable when the music was played in high volume. It is possible that music with high rhythmicity could provide a tempo to keep up the speed of the performance and thus enhance task performance.”
My wife and I got into an argument about her Happy Hour get-togethers with her friends. She told me that she allows men to buy her drinks. They see that she is married and don't care.

My wife says she accepts the drinks because it's nice that men still find her attractive and because she wants to save money. Should she be accepting the drinks? I don't think so
