Spoofs from psych

One Dan Simons, world-renown researcher, shared a link to the Dr. Fox lectures on Google+, and I thought it was quite amusing. To whit, the footage from a 1970 experiment (by Ware, Naftulin, and Donnelly) shows that experts can be tricked by nonsensical science, so long as the actor is convincing (and dressed in such a cunning 1970s suit, to boot!).

The more things change…. you know the rest.
