      I wonder what they considered "pleasant"? Sounds like they're
      talking elevator-music here. Personally, that stuff would activate
      the "kill" center of my brain... ;-)

      Seriously though, I wonder if the fact that I'm left handed is why
      I tend to enjoy "unpleasent, clashing" music as much as "pleasent"
      music (if not more). I wonder why they specifically selected right
      handed people for these tests.
