Interesting to listen to. I totally would have eaten the marshmallow.
phalsebob - 2009-09-16 Your link is broken, but assuming it says what I think it will say... I disagree. That carrot top kid had no idea what the value of marshmallows would be in five minutes time, so she just got while the getting was good.
RockBolt - 2009-09-16 Just delete the space in the link, have we not learned this by now
Comeuppance - 2009-09-16 Were these kids starved first? I've never been that excited or tormented about a marshmallow.
plopgun - 2009-09-16 I think the reactions have more to do with being left in a room with nothing to do.
zatojones - 2009-09-16 it's cruel to dress twins in the same outfit
Walt Henderson - 2009-09-16 As a result of this experiment, that kid with the blond buzz cut is clearly going to go on to become a human rights lawyer prosecuting torture cases for the Hague.
Go here if you want to hear Philip Zimbardo expound on this experiment for an hour.
memedumpster - 2009-09-16 If this had been a Japanese game show, when the kid bit the marshmallow sirens would have gone of with 200 decibel pig squeals and projected images of dead fat people all over the walls.
Or maybe if it had just been my game show.
mashedtater - 2009-09-16 i dont care, make that game show
Jack Cooper - 2009-09-16 I wish that they included more footage of the kids when the lady comes back with the other marshmallow.
