  • Commented on Eating Disorder Causes a High Death Rate

  • Commented on To believe or not believe, that is the question.
    After reading the articles in the post and within the books I am very shocked that some people still heavily rely on the polygraph tests. The fact that they are bias against the innocent astounds me, because that means that...

  • Commented on Help! I'm Lost in the Store!
    Really well done blog. I feel like in a lot of those situations, in moments of panic we reminisce about them differently then how they actually occurred. This reminds of what we learned in chapter 8 about flashbulb memories. When...
