Could this be "Superman's" bullish trading secret?
Could this also be why I sold my Apple stock years ago when it went up $1 in a day, since I don't take Tylenol?
Maybe I just need more Tylenol to trade in this environment...
Students who’d taken acetaminophen viewed “bungee jumping off a tall bridge” or taking skydiving classes as less risky than those given a placebo.
‘They just don’t feel as scared’
“Acetaminophen seems to make people feel less negative emotion when they consider risky activities – they just don’t feel as scared,” explains study co-author Baldwin Way, an associate professor of psychology, in a university release. “With nearly 25 percent of the population in the U.S. taking acetaminophen each week, reduced risk perceptions and increased risk-taking could have important effects on society.”
Another experiment uses a standard risk-taking assessment to see if the results hold true under different circumstances. Once again, 545 students took either a dose of Tylenol or a placebo. Afterwards, participants completed a computer game in which they get cash rewards for blowing up a balloon without popping it. Students push a button to “inflate” the virtual balloon and receive money as the balloon gets bigger. They can choose to keep blowing up the balloon or stop and collect the reward.
I hope to die in good health with a half a loaf of bread and a half filled balloon in the cabinet. LOL!
