Coffee makes you more open minded. The New Scientist is reporting that a study has found that coffee actually makes you think clearer.
“Moderate doses of caffeine can also make you more easily convinced by arguments that go against your beliefs, say Pearl Martin of the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, and her colleagues.
In 2005, her team published a paper suggesting that the compound primes people to agree with statements that go against their typical views because it improves their ability to understand the reasoning behind the statements.”
I think that politicians should be required to drink coffee before any debate.
