Happy Friday the 13th! We have three of them this year, so get ready for weird happenstances.

From Cassandra:
  • Revisiting Milgram’s experiment. Cassandra had a good point: let’s look at the people who refused to shock the participant and/or walked out of the experiment. 
  • A 1973 paper on psychology. This quote grabbed me: “Suppose that in the next thirty years we continued as we are now going. Another hundred phenomena, give or take a few dozen, will have been discovered and explored. Another forty oppositions will have been posited and their resolution initiated. Will psychology then have come of age?” 
  • Graverobbing in 1820s Scotland led to mortsafes, which really need to show up in movies or videogames or something similar. 

From Julie:

From Zazoo:

And finally, from Facebook: Hot Dudes Reading, an Instagram page which is just what it says.

Have a spiffy weekend and Valentine’s Day, everyone! See you next week.
