If you were an ass in middle school, you're SOL forever! So it turns out that science has found a way to prove that being a conformist back in the day would have lead to people like me being happier and more adjusted people when we get older. Just because I am the guy they are talking about in this article, I have to take offense to this. Chances are most folk who went to medical school were those who conformed, and while I too appreciate studies that justify an entire life lived among the heard, this just seems like conformity science. What would Denis Leary say about this? Turns out we can now justify why people are assholes I would go so far as to guess. I'm going to go flip off a priest now.
