Sex, Chocolate or a Puppy?

Did you know that looking at a warm, fuzzy baby animal can give you a buzz?

Stephan Hamann, Ph.D at Emory University discovered that looking at baby animals can give you a pleasure response that's similar to chocolate, drugs and sex!

When he showed pictures of puppies and baby seals to people, their brain scans showed increased activity in the brain areas that are responsible for pleasure. So what would you rather have a chocolate bar or a puppy?

Here's a puppy sure to trigger your pleasure centers. It's available on ebay.
