A study found that when you get revenge on someone it instantly puts you in a better mood. In fact it's one of the bass methods to switch from a bad mood. To a good one. That's awful. And it says just to make it even mores the researchers found you don't even need to get revenge on the person who wronged you to feel better he is taken out and someone else. And now you feel better but is that I mean is that really true though I mean they it's according to a study right could that be. If there was all right so someone wrong enemy.
