More stuff I didn't make up

"Duke study: McCain loss to Obama hit supporters in testes".

Male supporters of presidential candidates John McCain and Bob Barr took news of their candidates’ loss to Barack Obama hard, almost like a kick in the crotch, a new study from Duke University and the University of Michigan concludes.

Young men who voted for either McCain or Barr suffered immediate drops in their testosterone levels after the election results were announced, while Obama supporters suffered no change. Females also suffered no change, according to the study, which will be published in the journal PLOS One on Wednesday.

The researchers are going to follow up by studying fans attending a Duke-UNC basketball game.

As fark put it. Republicans suffered drop in testosterone. Obama voters, lacking any balls in the first place, were unchanged.

I think the researchers were engaged in wishful thinking....

Did anyone check the testosterone of male NC State fans post loss, notably the one to Duke 2 weeks ago? I'm fairly certain my husband could've lifted a truck with his anger.
