So I guess I want a follow-up poll asking the important question, which is how mad people get if somebody sits in the wrong seat.
1 In 5 Are In Chronic Pain
And 8% are in "high-impact" chronic pain, meaning the pain is bad enough that they can't live a normal life. One out of 12 people you pass on the street are in absolute agony.
That's something to keep in mind the next time you run into a rude driver, or a raging customer, or an antagonistic person on the internet. Pain messes with your mind, drains your energy, ruins your concentration. The old and the poor are also more likely to be in pain, so that's just another proverbial cockroach in their chili.
Society is, at the end of the day, just a big pile of other people's coping mechanisms. I guess we should try to remember that.
