Which one did you pick? WNYC’s Radiolab did an interesting piece on the role logic and emotion play in our decision making. There’s actually an explanation as to why you cave on your healthy streak and go for the good stuff and why it’s impossible to make all of your decisions using logic.

Clearly the woman in this photo chose to have her dog call the shots. I like to believe she defaults to it on all matters. If you have 30 minutes, it’s definitely a good listen. (The last 30 minutes are about a casino and just okay if you don’t want to commit an hour.) Listen to the podcast here.
