Do you have days when you just can’t get anything right?
Are there times when you stare at yourself in the mirror somewhere around midnight and say: “Why the hell did I do that?”
I’d like to offer you hope. It may be that you’re not innately stupid, silly, dumb, brain-dead or even gormless. Indeed, it may well be that you’ve got an algae virus that’s messing with your cognitive systems.
My own brain was moved, you see, by the Independent which muttered that scientists had discovered a virus that “makes you stupid.”
I immediately inserted medical instruments inside my cranium — without anesthetic — to see if I could find this virus, which might be my excuse for a thousand silly actions.
Well, I wanted to.
Instead, I went to look at the study, published by the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
