I thought people were on to this...

Some things never change:.
Scientists said on Friday they had replicated an experiment in which people obediently delivered painful shocks to others if encouraged to do so by authority figures. Seventy percent of volunteers continued to administer electrical shocks -- or at least they believed they were doing so -- even after an actor claimed they were painful, Jerry Burger of Santa Clara University in California found.
I thought people were on to this experiment. Oh wait, that's right, I only hang out with people that have actual educations... Who can substitute thought for faith and doubt for certainty... And would rather die on their feet as freemen, than cower and ask for Daddy Bush to save them from the evil terrists by signing away the rights their ancestors (well at least some of mine) fought to secure....Silly me...People are sheep.... Stupid, fearful, complaisant sheep...
