Do you always approach life logically, making careful decisions based on sound evidence and facts? Health warning! You may be suffering from abnormally high levels of rationality. This can be dangerous! Too much reason can clog up your brain and stifle your imagination. Many lecturers at the University of Edinburgh are suffering from this dangerous condition. Worryingly, they're passing it on to students. Fortunately, poetry and laughter can go a long way to alleviate the symptoms. Act now before it’s too late. Join Dr Daphne Loads (The University of Edinburgh) for a healthy injection of irrationality.
