Wow, it's even a "mis en bouteille"? Must have been really expensive.

Yes!

I knew you'd trip over that listing, Timo!

One wonders if the canapes served at that house would've suited, say, Renfield? (teasing, running like mad. . .) All that's missing would be authentic rat-tail demitasse (mouse-tail?) spoons!

A recent article in Scientific American suggests that intransigence is built in to human nature. The report details a study where partisan subjects were presented with items that either confirmed their existing beliefs or that contradicted them. MRI testing pinpointed areas of the brain that were activated when these pieces of information were presented.

Magnetic resonance imaging showed that the part of the brain that is associated with critical reasoning - the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex - was not active when presented with material about which the subjects already had an opinion. In other words, the partisan brain is almost incapable of reasoning.
