#RLC2014 Cooking With Gas!

NEW ORLEANS
The Republican Leadership Conference begins this evening with speeches scheduled by GOP chairman Reince Priebus and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and the air is thick with excitement. Or maybe the air is thick with humidity, which seems to be somewhere between 99 and 100 percent today. Periodic showers are actually a relief from the general steaminess of the subtropical climate in this Gulf port city. New Orleans is to humidity what Silicon Valley is to computer software.

Meanwhile, in the news — the science is settled!

Men who report watching a lot of pornography tend to have less volume and activity in regions of the brain linked to rewards and motivation, says a new German study.
The study, published in JAMA Psychiatry, can’t say watching porn caused the decrease in brain matter and activity, however.
It’s not clear, for example, whether watching porn leads to brain changes or whether people born with certain brain types watch more porn, said Simone Kühn, the study’s lead author from the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, in an email.
“Unfortunately we cannot answer this question based on the results of the present study,” Kühn said.
But, she noted, the results provide the first evidence for a link between pornography consumption and reductions in brain size and brain activity in response to sexual stimuli.

This explains a lot — Anthony Weiner, for example, is an obvious case of Pornography-Induced Brain Damage Syndrome. Also: Adulterous sexting — “chexting,” cheating by texting — destroys marriages.

Don’t know if Phil Robertson will talk about this stuff during his RLC speech, but I’m pretty sure he’s against it.
