Abstract
Hippocrates devised his theory of the 4 humours (blood, phlegm, black bile and yellow bile) 24 centuries ago. Since then, medicine has evolved into a complex body of confusing and sometimes contradictory facts. The authors, seeing a need to determine the validity of his theory, hired a psychic.
The psychic interviewed 4 eminent ancient physicians, including Hippocrates. A randomized double-blind cross-over design was used for this meta-life qualitative analysis.
All of the interviewees agreed that the theory of humours is an accurate model to explain disease and personality.
Hiring a psychic to conduct after-death interviews with key informants is a useful way to validate scientific theories.

Abstract
Hissy fits are experienced by physicians and patients alike, yet their full impact has never been studied before.
Specially trained researchers observed hissy fits at a clinic over 12 months. They interviewed perpetrators, victims and witnesses and recorded their comments because they had to.
Hissy fits were common at the clinic and sometimes escalated to riots. Seasonal variations were endured.
Nobody likes this behaviour. Efforts should be made to counsel hissy fitters in channeling their angst in other, more positive ways.

Abstract
Several lines of research illustrate that humor plays a pivotal role in relationship initiation. The current article applies sexual selection theory to argue that humor production is a fitness indicator, allowing men to transmit information tacitly about their underlying qualities. And whereas prior research has emphasized women's appreciation of humor as a signal of interest, the focus here is on how women evaluate prospective suitors' humorous offerings. Two studies, including an ecologically valid study of online dating advertisements, provided evidence for men's production and women's evaluation of humor in romantic contexts. A third study revealed that women's evaluations of potential mates' humor are predictive of their romantic interest. Moreover, this article shows that preferences for and perceptions of humor are associated with preferences for and perceptions of intelligence and warmth, consistent with the argument that one function of humor is as a fitness indicator that provides information about underlying mate quality.
