Parole judges are more lenient when fresh and well fed. As sessions progress, parole is more likely to be denied. A prisoner petitioning for parole just before a break has almost no chance.

This is intriguing! Does it mean that happy, comforted, comfortable people treat others more kindly? Worth pondering!

Interesting indeed. What does it mean for kids in the classroom? Hate to be the teacher right before lunch.

I teach college age students and we let them eat in the classroom, so it's not the same as with kids in grammar or middle school, but good point that keeping kids in a learning mode or even just "entertained" right before lunch is challenging. A fun game that reinforces the learning is always good! While for adults, too much "comfort" can impede our spiritual growth and concern for others, we need our kids to be "comfortable" and "safe" so they are kinder to themselves and others

I wish I could remember the source. A while back I read a study about how giving kids a granola bar before standardized tests boosts their scores.
