So I’m sitting in my home office freezing my feet off. It was 45 degrees C in Sydney a few days ago, so the image is for anyone down-under wanting to cool off. This has made my mind wander. I mentioned in a post a few days ago that a study had said that being warm increases creativity. So if you took a list of Nobel Prizes, or patents, could you draw any kind of linkage with average country temperature and original thinking? Or what about revolutions? Is there a link between propensity to revolt and average temperature? You might think this is nuts, but there’s a proven (but complex) linkage between crime and temperature.
