- Viewers of videos synchronize their blinking. It's true. When people watch videos in a group, they tend to blink at the same time. Steve Genco explains why.
- The goal really does seem bigger when you're kicking well. Mo explains the research, which involves an extremely cute miniature adjustable field goal.
- People work harder when they believe their work is "meaningful." A cool experiment involving Legos explains why adult video store clerks are the surliest people in the world (or so I've heard).
- Placebos have "side effects." Neuroskeptic shows why this may mean that side-effects of real drugs are exaggerated.
Hey, I'll have you know that, yeah, everyone's seen Clerks, but that I am an adult video store clerk and I am just the most helpful, positive, perky lil' thing you'll ever lay eyes on!
But I never knew that I was supposed to be the epitome of "surly", so now me and my 5'4 frame and my high pitched voice will try to be a better example of such! :)
