I'd rather be psychopathic than stupid.

Thanks!

Call me old fashioned, but the name of the study indicates a slight bias:

Funny how atheists are entirely underrepresented in prisons. You'd think if atheists were such psychopaths the court system would be overflowing with them, but nope. It's almost all theists of one sort and another, mostly christian.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

But it also mentions that were smarter... Maybe that's why there are so few on prison
