- 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.

Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
