Researchers had 96 volunteers either count hundred dollar bills or blank pieces of paper before having their fingers dipped in 122-degree water. The volunteers who had handled the money reported feeling less physical pain than those who counted paper.In a similarly structured experiment, the researchers found that those who were made to get the short end of the stick in an unfair multiplayer game responded with a lower level of social distress if they had been in the group which counted money -- not paper -- before playing.So was Scrooge McDuck really a hopelessly obnoxious miser, or did he dive into that pool of money to help alleviate chronic back pain? Furthermore, is it strange that that question immediately comes to mind?
