A study of 12 children, aged between six and ten, found that they acted more aggressively when given chicken drumsticks compared with eating pre-cut chicken pieces.


Well, that sounds conclusive.  Kudos to the research team for their years of hard and exhaustive work.  Maybe now chicken drumsticks will come with a warning and finally end this global siege of unruly children, now that the reasons have been laid bare.

I would think they'd be more aggressive after eating chemical laden nuggets.

The government puts those things in our food to pacify us, silly.  That's one of the reasons why N0bamma wants to take our guns -- to deprive us of the ability to hunt for food, furthering our dependence on government-approved adulterated foods.

This is England, they have a different definition of "rowdy".  Children who use the wrong fork are considered rowdy of there.

It's always amusing to observe the differences in tourists here when I'm out at the theme parks.

British parents:  "Sweetie, you're embarrassing yourself.  Please do stop."

American parents:  "IF YOU DON'T FARKING KNOCK IT OFF THIS VACATION IS OVER AND I DON'T CARE HOW MUCH YOU FARKING BIATCH AND SCREAM!"

I really wish I were exaggerating.  The differences can be pretty stark.

Of course drumsticks make kids more aggressive. Put anything vaguely stick-shaped in kids' hands, and their thoughts immediately turn to what they can hit with the stick. Even as adults we're not entirely immune to this: when's the last time you had a yardstick in your hand and didn't at least briefly imagine swordfighting with it?

The real question is, is this bad? I'm not so sure that it is.

I know what you're talking about.  I have what most Americans would consider "very proper" English relatives, but my one cousin is "rowdy", but still far more polite than most of my American cousins.

And the way those cousins deal with their children if far different than America.  A lot less threats of violence for one.

I'm pretty sure 'stick = tool/weapon' is deeply ingrained into our genetic code. When my son first picked up a stick in the yard, at around a year old, the first thing he did was poke and hit things. I believe that there were very few environmental influences that would demonstrate that behavior for him to mimic. It seemed like an intuitive behavior for him.

Weird. Americans routinely place at or near the top of several international surveys of who the best tourists are. (Of course the criteria for "best" may vary from survey to survey.) I think the myth that Americans are loud comes exlusively from....Americans. Because We are generally far far more critical of ourselves than people of any other nation as far as I can see.

From the 2013 survey here a quote from French tourism-service industry employees. Including a snipe about our ignorance of European culture.

"We used to make fun of Americans for not knowing their fingers from their toes in terms of European history and geography. But since the recession, we miss them," he said. "They're really polite to everyone. The guests who are filling their shoes come from cultures where it's acceptable to be harsh or abusive to people who serve you, which has been a real shock to us." A tour guide in Berlin said that "Americans are a lot sweeter and more curious than most." A Kenyan Safari guide agreed, saying, "Americans are probably the kindest and most generous people we work with. They're happy with everything we show them."

Researchers actually get paid to study this BS?

I wonder how long before they suggest feeding the kids chicken drumsticks which have the consistency of baby food and come in a jar?

Better not even let them get close to a pork chop.

Oh come now. There are diseases so rare that perhaps only twelve known cases with living victims exist. And do you know how hard it is to find children who eat chicken? I'm looking all around my living room and I don't see any.

TFA does seem bullsh*tty. However, your thinking that they'd be more aggressive after eating nuggets is equally bullsh*tty. Appealing to nature (it's worse because it's not natural, or better because it is) is a logical fallacy.
 
2014-08-19 12:12:44 PM  
I have four grandchildren, and all four of them will only eat chicken if it is in the form of McNuggets.  Therefore, according to my research, 100% of all children prefer McDonald's McNuggets over real chicken.

Well, two things:

1)  I was referring more to children's behavior and their respective parents' means of dealing with that - not overall behavior.

2)  Maybe being out of one's native element makes them more well-behaved, deferential, and civilized.

Plus, maybe the mouth breathers here don't want to go some stinking third world country like France.  ;-)
 
2014-08-19 12:43:57 PM  
Whenever I was handed a drumstick as a kid, I always ate it aggressively, because that's what I always saw in my children's cartoons - If you get a big carrot, you eat it like Bugs Bunny, and if you get a drumstick, you farking devour that thing with your hands and face like you are the King of England.
