Yet another weird SF fan

I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

Guns Scientifically Linked to … Tex-Mex Food

According to The New York Times:

Handling a gun stirs a hormonal reaction in men that primes them for aggression, new research suggests.
The alleged aggression was measured by a novel means:
"Those who had handled the gun put in about three times as much as the others — 13 grams on average, which is a lot," said Tim Kasser, one of the authors. He worked with Francis McAndrew, also of Knox, and Jennifer Klinesmith, a former student who had the idea for the study, due to appear in Psychological Science.
Is this additional evidence that the Left (we can take a look at another of Tim Kasser's studies to establish that he is part of the Left) is about to abandon Mexicans? They come over here, they take our jobs, they go on welfare, they serve extra-spicy food …. It might also be evidence we should be armed against the dreaded invasion from Thailand.

This could be the start of a new series of violations of civil liberties. They'll start with mandatory registration of habaneros and then work down to confiscating paprika. By the time they start compulsory anti-garlic propaganda campaigns in elementary schools it will be too late.

There will, of course, be black-market spices, but we can expect the dealers to cut them with bland substances. We can also expect to find increased police corruption from this Prohibition. When spices are outlawed, only outlaws will have tasty food.
