Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.

Thiiiiiiis, people, thiiiis!

1. Kill alpha male types
2. Achieve world peace

Got it.

I volunteer for the elimination squad!

Are the “alpha male” types really making more children than other men ? Selective breeding may not be that useful if human “alpha males” don’t really have a reproductive advantage. But then maybe they have one and that’s kinda creepy.
Or maybe “alpha males” are just the males making the most children (without looking at their behaviour) and killing all of them could mean that fucking weirdos, the ones making no children at all, could be the only ones still alive.
AND THEN WHAT.

(also women can choose their males, or I surely hope so, baboons probably not so much, I guess).

A little behind the scenes look of the early stages of Green Lantern the Animated Series.

My eternal gratitude to everyone who helped prove the doubters wrong.

I still can’t believe how unscientific focus groups can be.
If you really want reliable data when you put your money in new shows, you could at least try to be sure that the results won’t be biased.

To begin with, social desirability seems to be a wacky bias. Kids are in group, they can watch on which side the other kids are turning their hand held. And I don’t even know if a hand held is that reliable, it clearly means that kids have to be conscious of their “excitement level” all the time, and not fully let themselves watch the show.
This seems flawed, alright.

Data’s next attempt at creating offspring was far more sarcastic.
