Study: Pain Hurts More If The Person Hurting You Means It

We poke a lot of fun at silly studies on The Frisky, but occasionally one comes along that’s actually interesting and insightful. Researchers at Harvard University have discovered that our experience of pain depends on whether we think someone caused the pain intentionally. Participants in the study were given electrical shocks and asked to rate the level of pain they experienced. When those participants believed the electrical shock was delivered intentionally rather than on accident, they rated that shock as more painful. This made me think about whether the same thing would apply to emotional pain and not just physical pain. Does it feel worse when someone hurts your feelings on purpose rather than on accident? Think about heartbreak — does it feel worse when the heartbreak happens as a result of someone doing something hurtful, like cheating? [Science Daily] Keep reading »

    Star Trek Goes Gay, Finally

    Back in the ’90s, “Star Trek: The Next Generation” commissioned an episode involving gay characters in love. The script for “Blood And Fire” was about a deathly bloodworm epidemic, a metaphor for the AIDS crisis, and it was also the first time the multi-cultural show would have included homosexuals in any of their plots. Unfortunately, although creator Gene Roddenberry wanted to include positive representations of the gay community on his show, Paramount Studios wasn’t as forward thinking. But, like communicator/cell phones, the episode featuring gay lovers didn’t get made for real, until recently. Thanks to the fan artist project “Star Trek: Phase II”, the show will boldly go gay in a webisode! Working with the original writer, David Gerrold, and his premise, the fan crew also adapted the script about Kirk’s gay nephew to deal with the topical issue of same sex marriage. You can check out the first half of the webisode tomorrow on YouTube, but if you just want to see the sexy parts, check out the video above. [io9] Keep reading »

    Sex Can Sell Anything, Even Fast Food

    This Arby’s commercial always makes us laugh, and it kind of puts us in the mood for some of those yummy curly fries. But isn’t it strange that sexually charged ads can sell fast food? There is nothing attractive about the gross feeling you get after eating a cheeseburger and a large fry. Do you ever feel like getting it on after pigging out? We certainly don’t. And despite Burger King’s new Flame by BK fragrance, the smell of deep-fried food can be nausea-inducing. Even so, the technique seems to work. Fast food restaurants use sex to sell burgers all the time. In fact, we should probably add the cute fast-food girl to the before-marriage sex list for guys. Check out a German Burger King commercial for the chain’s Long Chicken Sandwich after the jump…

    Obit: The First Lady Of “Star Trek,” Majel Roddenberry

    Majel Roddenberry, the widow of “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry, died yesterday from leukemia at the age of 76. Though she was married to the show’s creator, she also was a key part of the show’s success from the very beginning. She became known for playing numerous characters, including Nurse Chapel on the original series, the voice of the ship’s computer, and Counselor Troi’s crazy mom on “The Next Generation.” She just finished recording voice over work for the newest “Star Trek” movie, which means her legacy will live on a little longer.
