Firth guest-edited an episode of a British radio show this past December that contained a segment in which politicians' brains were scanned to see if there was a physiological difference between conservatives and liberals.

After the segment aired, a neuroscientist continued with the experiment, looking at 90 more subjects, and finding that, yes, there seems to be some difference in brain scans.

No, they don't really know what that means or why that would be, but the results of the study have been published in Current Biology, and Colin Firth is now even more dreamy and accomplished than he was before. [BBC]
