I just stumbled onto this video today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6GxIuljT3w&NR I'd heard about this before, but seeing it in action is a bit eerie. It's scary how eager some of them are to hurt others. I'm not sure about the experiment in the video, but in the original test the subjects were given a shock themselves before administering a shock to the actor, so they knew what it felt like. Even so, they still went on with it. Scary stuff.
How far do you think you guys would go?
I don't know how far I'd go. I know I wouldn't object if it was just a small prick of pain, but I'd like to think I know for certain that if it ever got to the screaming stage I'd just stop there. I equate it to the same as punching someone in the arm(with malicious intent) as opposed to punching them in the face. The intent is to harm in either case, but one is far worse than the other.
