Do you scream at the driver in front of you who’s going too slow? Fling ash trays across the room because you can’t find the Cheeto that looks like Abe Lincoln you had stashed under the seat cushion? Hey, you’re not a bad person, you might have IED, Intermittent Explosive Disorder. A study released in the Archives of General Psychiatry says 16 million Americans may suffer from this behavior disorder. That’s a lot of cursing. It won’t be long before there’s a telethon to help find a cure (“WHY AREN’T YOU DONATING MORE MONEY GODDAMMIT!!!”), pop groups will band together — spearheaded by Smash Mouth — to record a charity song, and we’ll all apologize to Naomi Campbell, Jack Nicholson, and Russell Crowe for scorning them when they’ve thrown things in rage.
