The ordinary-sized words are for everyone, but the big ones are especially for children.

Unconscious influence: a rant.

David Engleman's documentary on the brain quoted research showing that if you're holding a hot drink your memories of your relationship with your mother will be, on average, warmer than if you are holding a cold one.

Another study showed that if you are sitting next to a bottle of hand sanitiser then your political opinions will move to the right.

Will we be seeing bottles of hand sanitiser in every poling booth in every election? Or will we be seeing a campaign for a law to ban them?
