Ponzio Pilatos already did it two thousand years agoWhen the trial of Jesus Christ had to be carried out, he "washed" his hands to disregard any compromise on the final result. But apparently the legacy of Pilate goes beyond being one of the most insensitive characters in history, because to this day washing our hands does seem to make us more forgiving.

This is the conclusion drawn from an investigation carried out by British scientists from the University of Plymouth, who have studied a group whose half members were induced to wash their hands and the other half remained dirty, and then watch together some scenes from the controversial Trainspotting movie.

The team of researchers found that of the 44 individuals in total, the 22 who had not washed their hands judged the scenes of the film as immoral based on a scale of 1 to 10. On the other hand, based on the same scale, the 22 remaining with clean hands tended to be rather condescending with the protagonists of the film.

While the researchers themselves warn the judges to keep their hands dirty before judging, this strange investigation does not cease to have cartoonish dyes. If someone finances me, I will undertake a thorough study that demonstrates that washing your feet counteracts the effects of washing your hands when conducting a moral judgment, in order to maintain universal balance.
