I'm not a big marshmallow fan. If this was a peanut butter cup I would have consumed it before it touched the table.

Given a marshmallow I would have scoffed it then and there but offered peanut butter cups I'm switching the patience on and getting double dose of that.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_marshmallow_experiment

This is a famous/infamous experiment on children that now seems to correlate to academic and personal achievement. That is, the children that can defer eating the marshmallow seem to grow into adults that will gain better standards of education, better careers, better health, avoid crime, drug dependency, obesity and more.

Yeah. Problem is that, in real life, they come back and take the first marshmallow away from you, so eventually we all learn to become idiots.

Kids today...


...When we were kids, we'd have eaten the marshmallow, then pulled out a switchblade and stole the other one and ran naked into the night.
