How to Change Your Spending Habits

A recent study looked at the way that judges grant parole to prisoners and the factors impacting these decisions.

What the study found was that when faced with prisoners doing time for the same crime judges were more likely to rule in favour of parole in the morning.

In the morning judges ruled in favor of parole 70% of the time, but as the day wore on, the favourable ruling dropped to zero.
