Chuck E. Cheese Experiment Reveals Human Nature

Human beings are peculiar creatures with a strange set of rules. We catch onto trends quickly, but can be easily swayed by minor changes in our environment, especially when it has to do with getting tickets we could trade in for cheap, horrible prizes. Here's a teacher who underestimated their students during a social experiment.

Quick Tumblr Thread on the Impostor Cleaner Fish

We knew there were tons of extremely specialized, gross and miserable animals. Y'know, like wasps that lay eggs in living things or fish that swim up pee holes. It looks like this guy just got added to the list. For more animal tumblr stuff, here's a tumblr meltdown after someone says fish aren't animals, and a tumblr thread on farm animals that takes a dark turn.

Enlightening Tumblr Thread On Meanings Of Figures Of Speech

We can all benefit from the pleasant reminder that we're actually radical human beings, and that the English language supports this theory. That being said, we haven't verified these, so they could be totally pulled out of thin air. Doesn't mean we weren't entertained.

Twitter Thread: Chuck E. Cheese Worker Conducts Behavioral Study Using Arcade Games

While Chuck E. Cheese has gotten attention for filing bankruptcy and for their sneaky Pasqually's Pizza debacle, we think this Twitter thread involving the chain is far more interesting. Twitter user @Professor_Palmer took to the social media site to announce that for the past few weeks he's been conducting secret behavioral studies on unsuspecting Chuck E. Cheese game players. The experiments are rather simple, and involve adjusting the use of lights and sound in an attempt to better understand what draws people to - or away from - arcade games. The results? Human beings are really, really, easily manipulated. While this isn't the most shocking insight on our kind, seeing Cary Palmer spell it out in such a fun (and thorough) way has been incredibly informative. And very entertaining.

Fun and Frustration with The English Language

The English language has some confusing peculiarities to it that result in English struggles, but heck, most languages have some phonetic and semantic weirdness winding through them. And English isn't the only strange language. Here's a post defending the English language and how it's not the only weird language out there.
