Untensers Rock

  According to M. Keith Chen people that use languages that use no past or present tense, called "untensers" ie. Mandarin, consistently accumulate more wealth, hold onto it for longer periods of time, are healthier and live longer compared to those that speak a language with a tense. 
  Data was analyzed from 76 countries. It is thought that such"untensers"see their lives as less of a timeline and more of a whole. Tensers {those of us that speak english} see the past as something we've left behind and the future...a distant planet we are unlikely to visit.
