I found this while researching another topic, and it gave me pause:
Marshall University, 2003 Study: Behavioral change in first-time expectant fathers' aggression
Apparently my grade seven Science Fair hypothesis that plants would grow better with apple juice than they would with milk isn't the dumbest science experiment ever done.
But, to the geniuses that came up with this one, I have two questions:
1) Why were they studying the fathers?
2) By "limitations" did they mean the angry pregnant wives who kept calling every five minutes to find out where the hell their husbands were and why they weren't at home at their beckon call?
Maybe they should have studied the occurrence of fear instead? But why start at pregnancy when you can go all the way back to the wedding day; or the nine months leading up to that?
On that note: A quick shout out to my future brother-in-law, Marc: "Congrats on the Engagement! Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy..."
