Drummers Are Smarter Than Other Musicians, Study Finds
Despite their reputation, drummers were recently named the smartest members of the musical community, even capable of spreading their smartness on the environment.

As PolyMic reports, the skin-bashers possess innate problem-solving skills and can make a positive impact on the surrounding community.

Researchers from Stockholm's Karolinska Institutet have found that after playing a series of beats, drummers with a better sense of rhythm have scored higher results on an intelligence test.

Furthermore, a University of Washington research has proven that rhythmical music can make other people sharper, not just the drummer, basing the results on patient treatment through rhythmic light and sound therapy.

Finally, the University of Oxford research team has discovered that drummers produce a natural "high" while jamming, increasing both happiness and pain threshold. Finally, the Harvard team came to a conclusion that when drummers skip a beat, they are actually returning back to the natural rhythm found all over Earth.

So to sum it all up, drummers are more intelligent and more balanced with nature than you are. The joke's clearly not on them anymore.
