DON'T Clean Your Plate

During the 2004 Superbowl (Panthers vs. Patriots), 53 football fans participated in an all you can eat chicken wing buffet. During the game, waitresses cleared the chicken bones from only half the tables. Subjects whose plates got emptied ate 43% more wings than those whose plates were covered with bones. Bones apparently provided a visual cue that they ate enough.

Tell that one to your mom.
