The Nazis Had Pieces of Flair They Used To Make The Jews Wear

Don't read this if you're having a fragile day where you already fear for, as Eric Bogle put it, "Man's blind indifference to his fellow man."

Replicating one of the most controversial behavioral experiments in history, a Santa Clara University psychologist has found that people will follow orders from an authority figure to administer what they believe are painful electric shocks.

More than two-thirds of volunteers in the research study had to be stopped from administering 150 volt shocks of electricity, despite hearing a person's cries of pain, professor Jerry M. Burger concluded in a study published in the January issue of the journal American Psychologist.

People are shit. No surprise though - the yanks voted George Dubya in for a second term back in '04, what more proof do you need?
