Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig have just found out that stress is not only stressful, it is even contagious.
But it doesn’t stop there, folks. It is so contagious that you can even get it just by watching German TV.
And this is supposed to be news? I’ve known about this for years. The German TV part, I mean.
“I am gross and perverted. I’m obsessed and deranged. I have existed for years, but very little has changed. I’m the tool of the government and industry too, for I am destined to rule and regulate you. I may be vile and pernicious, but you can’t look away. I make you think I’m delicious, with the stuff that I say. I’m the best you can get. Have you guessed me yet? I’m the stress oozing out from your TV set.”
Wer den Fernseher einschaltet, um abzuschalten, sollte das mit Bedacht tun.
