"Bullies may get kick out of seeing others in pain"

That is the actual Reuters headline for the shocking and "surprising" findings of a recent University of Chicago study.  Reseachers proclaimed this counterintuitive.  They did not attend my middle school.  Apparently we had a double-blind controlled study going on at the time.  Wish I had gotten the placebo.

Next up:  spouses do not like it so much when you suggest they are fat, but someone you met at the office is certainly not or is just "awesome."
