8 Billion Dollars
Posted by Heebie-Geebie on 04.24.15

Via Benquo, elsewhere: You have 8 billion dollars. You want to do as much good as possible. What should you do?

We've had variations on this game, but never with a firm dollar amount like this, I think.

What would I do? Compulsively sing this song, for starters.

Invisibility
Posted by Heebie-Geebie on 04.24.15

Via Tedra, elsewhere:

Now neuroscientists in Sweden have simulated the effect [of being invisible] using virtual reality and found, perhaps unsurprisingly, that the sensation of being transparent makes people less anxious in front of a stern-looking crowd.

This is a very entertaining, but maybe silly, thing to study. Isn't watching TV kind of like being invisible already? No one feels nervous when they pan a crowd of people who seem to be staring right at you.
