ModernPrimitive01: the article is wrong because babies are disgusting, filthy creatures which shouldn't elicit a reaction from anyone ever. My dog on the other hand might be the cutest animal on the face of the earth.


It going to turn into a drooling couch cushion soon enough.

You're surprised that no one posted a clip from an unfunny show that no more than a dozen people watch?

So sorry it didn't meet your lofty standards. I thought Fark was where one could post the "obscure".

"obscure", yes.

UsikFark: grimnir: Using popped bubbles in bubble wrap as a measure of aggression? I'm not sure whether that's genius or insane, but I'm kind of leaning toward genius. It's cheap and provides an easily measurable, easily comparable metric for how much a person was squeezing a thing. Whoever thought of that and whoever approved its use in this manner deserves... I don't know. A lollipop or something.

I was involved in a similar weird experiment in college. One of the requirements for the intro to psychology course was that we had to participate in the grad students' experiments. The one I was involved in went like this:

They asked the other student (a stranger) and me to type about our goals and dreams, at least 150 words. They then had us take a 25 question "test" that required us to select the oldest looking person out of four portraits. I was then informed that I got it correct 90% of the time, and the stranger got it right 20% of the time. They then asked us about our life goals for the second time.

The point of the study was to determine if having an idiot sitting next to you made you feel better about yourself- we were both told that the other scored 20%. Thing is, the test was such a non-sequitor for me it was really bothering me. I lost respect for pop psychology in general, and I never believe "results" unless the conditions of the study are described and seem plausible.


Most of the time, the structure of the "test" is more telling of the designer, than the people being studied.

Yep. They misunderestimated my suspension of disbelief.

Used to have a boss who would wander around the office with bubblewrap, popping it. Not sure about HIS aggression, but it made everyone else want to take an axe to his head.

Another possibility is that it's just too much of a good thing -- sometimes we portray an onslaught of positive emotion in a negative way, like when you're so happy you cry. Dyer speculates that giving positive emotions a negative spin might help us regulate that high energy.

Well now tumblr makes sense. "Fark your face, I hate you, you bastard" is about the highest compliment a man can get, there.

Once heard a scary ancient woman say to a baby in a stroller "You're so cute I wanna cut your tongue out!".

Our Chow-Chow that passed on 12/29 was a terminally cute, fluffy and gorgeous little dog. I was forever petting her, rubbing her belly, giving her scritchins and hugs. I miss her terribly. Her loss makes me wish I was dead.

Point of order: the monster threw her into the water and she drowned, not squeezed her to death.
