Damn those stereotypes to hell!

Interesting. Makes sense, I guess.

Also a study done to show that eldest children have higher IQs.

I'm gunna be tired tomorrow. I'm here at work until like 2:30 or 3am. Weeeee! Then up again to be in for 9. The internet is my entertainment. Go digg.com!

Mahhh...

And the men and women never noticed the high-tech rig strapped to their face.

By knowing they are being observed, the test subjects are influenced and hence in my mind it influences the experiment.

Maybe it's right, maybe not. If there had been no observers, who knows who would have looked where?

The observation gear wasn't strapped to them, PG. They just used high-tech cameras that register eye movement, hence I don't think it's as heavily-influenced as you may think.

But you're right... people under observation (or anything under observation) never reacts the same as it would unseen.

Funny, I pictured this apparatus à la Clock Work Orange prying their eyes open and forcing them to look at Penthouse while listening to classical music...

Ahhhhh, my poor depraved mind...

Patrick calls that apparatus "Saturday night entertainment". He's a little strange, but we still like him.
