  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Newly formed emotional memories can be erased from the human brain. This is shown by researchers from Uppsala University in a new study now being published by the academic journal Science. The findings may represent a breakthrough in research on memory and fear.

There is a reason we feel pain (our bodies telling us "Don't do that again!") and there is a reason we feel fear (our brain telling us "Don't try that at all!")....

Now I will agree that EXCESSIVE fear is a bad thing.... but show me someone totally without fear... and I'll show you an idiot...
