Our happy hour fact to amaze your drinking buddies with.
Kids who eat candy regularly are more likely to turn into violent adults.
A British study of 17,000 children born in the '70s found that 69 percent of those who were arrested for a violent crime by the age of 34 ate candy "every day" while growing up
. Among those without violent offenses, only 42 percent had chowed down daily on sweets during their childhood.
Researchers weren't quite sure why this is, but one of the explanations is that parents who are overly permissive may not be teaching their children to delay gratification, leading to impulsive and violent behavior.
In other words, you can assume that Augustus Gloop would have grown into one sick bastard.
