Classical Music? Humbug!

via slashdot - Heavy metal 'a comfort for the bright child'

"The results of a study of more than 1,000 of the brightest five per cent of young people will come as relief to parents whose offspring, usually long-haired, are devotees of Iron Maiden, AC/DC and their musical descendants.

Researchers found that, far from being a sign of delinquency and poor academic ability, many adolescent "metalheads" are extremely bright and often use the music to help them deal with the stresses and strains of being gifted social outsiders."

Maybe pregnant women should expose themselves to metal rather than classical music.
