826. How to be a better singer, oy

I've collected a bunch of interesting links over the past month, including this food for thought:

Birds Under Stress Become Better Singers

An excerpt:

"A hostile environment and inconsistent weather may explain why some birds become better singers than others, and also likely have superior learning and mating skills, a study said Thursday."

Since I do believe in evolution as well as God, I have to wonder: does it work that way for people, too? Do I sound better now than a few years ago because of all the worrying? I think I fit the profile (although my mating skills could use some help). We already know that that suffering, kvetching, and losing sleep makes us great doctors and lawyers--but how cool if someone could prove that it gives us better voices, too.
