Being cold might make you get cold, SCIENTISTS REVEAL. My irritation with THIS SORT OF THING is summed up in the final sentence – “Mothers can now be confident in their advice to children to wrap up well in winter” b/c of course the natural state of parenthood is a jelly of neurosis which can only be alleviated by BOFFINRY.

And yes OK I get just as annoyed with untrue things being claimed as “common sense” – you CAN’T WIN.
