The World, Vidiots since the 50s.  Now on a cell phone near you.  The app developers have admitted that it is all dopamine triggering per neuro-linguistic-programming ... and the only point is your eyes, for advertisements.  Dr Pavlov wasn't wrong.

OMG!  I just watched Avengers Civil War where the Government's arguement against them was that, in some way, the attack of the supervillians was caused by the EXISTENCE of the Avengers themselves. 

And then I just read a spoiler of The Incredibles 2 where the same thing seems to be suggested.  Am I comparing apples to oranges or is this an interesting similarity?

Just a thought...

Story ripoffs, just like the Bible.  The Babylonians need to sue the Jews for infringement (tzitzit .... get it?)

The Car Talk guys, Click and Clack, had a director of Pavlovian studies named Isabelle Ringing...

I used to listen to those guys.  Never understood a car repair thing they said, but I vaguely felt smarter (like talking to a friend and asking if he had checked the frammistat).
