Hard News: Scoring



Are ya just sick of it, fed up with the gloomy news? Do ya sometimes think you'd like to curl up in a corner, pop some pills and call it a day?

Well, you can...for free! You too can have a tranquil drug experience and without lurking around a creepy downtown alley, paying an arm and a leg for a good time! Scientists tell us that simple acts of kindness are associated with elevated levels of dopamine and oxytocin: natural opiates. Hey, fun!

Consider Ted and Penny Landreth.

They're in their sixties and each year for the past twenty years they've fed 45,000 folks free lunches. Ted and Penny float off to sleep every night on a little cloud known as "helper's high."

Bravo on Ted and Penny!

I want what they're having.

  1. So if I refuse my schoolteacher's paycheck, I'll feel better? Hmmm...

  2. No, but if you give yourself a pat on the back for teaching fourth graders you will. Promise!
