Interesting article in the Journal of Experimental Psychology. Maybe it'll help us all if we avoid the color red on test day...

"If test takers are aware of even a hint of red, performance on a test will be affected to a significant degree, say researchers at Rochester and the University of Munich."

*&^%, the carpet and wallpaper in the room I took the test was red -- this may explain my lackluster performance.

or maybe it was your closed-mindedness and the fact that you were distracted by your appointment later that day to bomb an abortion clinic.

I think it was your lackluster brain. But yeah, maybe it was the carpet. Good point.
