Post-Valentine’s Day Sweetness

This video from McSweeney’s (and mentioned on The Hairpin) shows the science behind love: the chemicals that light up our brain when we think about the love in our lives.

The Stanford MRI Lab hosts the world’s first ever love competition, in which seven contestants have five minutes to neurochemically love someone as hard as they can.

Go watch that video, and then browse McSweeney’s.  They have a lot of humorous articles written by famous people such as Jesse Eisenberg, Sarah Vowell, and John Hodgman.

McSweeney’s is a publishing company based in San Francisco. As well as operating a daily humor website, we also publish Timothy McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, the Believer, Lucky Peach, Wholphin, Grantland Quarterly, and an ever-growing selection of books under various imprints.

For example, from Rethinking Horse Proverbs by

You’re selling yourself short if you accept the idea that you can lead a horse to water but can’t make him drink. Try taking him to a lake where a bunch of other horses are already drinking and then make him feel inadequate for not joining the group. Or put a skewer of olives in the water and tell the horse that the lake is a giant martini.

How about a song?  Why not?  It is from the Kellogg Special K granola bar commercial, the one with all the chocolate ❤
