Has anyone heard all of this?

I'm listening to the newest SModcast (Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier's podcast), and they talked about this.

I find it very bizarre, shocking, and kind of eye opening.

Do you think, honestly and truthfully, that if you were put in that sitution, that you could go through with it?

I think, in the situation, and me being unknowing of the true experiment, that I would probably go through with it at first, because I would think I was doing something to help, but I would have to stop.

I just couldn't go through with it.

It sounds very interesting, I don't really know what I'd do to be honest.

Heard about it before. Pretty interesting, and I'm curious as to what extent it can account for situations such as My Lai.

It's essentially the same thing.

People following direct orders with no question simply for the sake of a "higher cause".

Again, pretty bizarre, yet interesting.

When it started talking about Nazis just following orders, it reminded me of "The Wave".

Talked about this one in my psychology class. Interesting. I would probably geek out around the level 5 to 7 area and tell the person instructing me to continue to **** themselves. It's what I'd like to believe, but really the thing i learned is sometimes you never can tell.

I actually want to see some of the tapes to see the people going through with it.

I heard Mosier say he saw videos and such of it.

How many volts can kill a person?

100-200 mA (miliamps) can kill you.

And Mythbusters says 6 mA straight to the heart can kill you (Toaster in the bathtub myth).
