Teal Swan, an emerging cult leader, claims she is a multi-dimensional Arcturian alien working with 11 other aliens in an “intergalactic Green Peace” type organization. She says she has x-ray vision and hearing, that she can inject herself into people’s brainstems to revive them and can hear tectonic plates moving. She has a massive following, many of whom, called “Tealers,” tattoo themselves with her symbol. Teal claims suicide is a “reset button” and that “death is delicious.” At least two of her followers have already committed suicide. Teal also claims to have suffered 13-years of abuse in a child-murdering Mormon Satanic Cult where she was routinely tortured, sewn into a corpse for 12 hours and made to torture other children.

Nice try, Mr Zimbardo

The story goes that on August 16, 1971, a 22-year-old prisoner named Douglas Korpi started freaking out, demanding guards let him leave the Stanford Prison Experiment. Guards denied his request. But it didn’t really happen that way.

For Medium, Ben Blum interviews participants and examines documents to tell the truth about the world’s most famous psychological study, and explains why such revelations won’t keep the experiment from influencing popular thinking about human behavior. Philip Zimbardo, the Stanford psychology professor who put the experiment together, misrepresented details and settled on a set public narrative that conflicted with the facts. He groomed the fake prison guards to act “tough,” copied another experiment and manipulated results. Why does this matter? Because, as Blum puts it, the experiment made Zimbardo “the most prominent living American psychologist,” and the experiment achieved lasting “canonical status in intro psych classes around the country.” The SPE was an experiment alright, but not necessarily scientific. Just as Douglas Korpi was acting, so was a guard named Dave Eshelman.

ooh, thanks for this.

going into it I'm inclined to think any controversy about natural/bio-d wines is stupid - You could make the same case that naturally fermenting wild ales are an affront to more rigidly controlled forms of modern brewing but, fuck that, right? There are no wrong answers here.

vintners are just gonna make the wine they want to make, customers are going to drink what they're into. personally, I can't stand those gigantic californian reds like caymus or the prisoner- they have basically no old world analogue, are impossible to pair with food, and are so dense and boozy as to be immune to oxidation. but nobody's wrong for liking then, however dumb I think it is to drop $75 on a bottle of whatever cough syrup robert parker is into this month.

anyway, can't wait to read!
