    How Alex Jones Uses Religion To Manipulate You

    Alex Jones. The infamous conspiracy theorist has been throwing out the dangers of the “New World Order” for decades. Like an insane Santa Claus, he has a list of everyone who is naughty or nice. Except he is sharing the list every day of the year and nearly everyone is naughty. His targets have included parents of dead children, presidents, and pizza joints. For someone who rarely talks about his faith, he does use a plethora of apocalyptic rhetoric that quotes the Old Testament.

    The Dangers of Ignoring Cognitive Inequality

    On Sunday 28 April 1996, Martin Bryant was awoken by his alarm at 6am. He said goodbye to his girlfriend as she left the house, ate some breakfast, and set the burglar alarm before leaving his Hobart residence, as usual. He stopped briefly to purchase a coffee in the small town of Forcett, where he asked the cashier to “boil the kettle less time.” He then drove to the nearby town of Port Arthur, originally a colonial-era convict settlement populated only by a few hundred people.

    Toddlers prefer winners - but avoid those who win by force

    Toddlers aged just 1 1/2 years prefer individuals whom other people yield to. It appears to be deeply rooted in human nature to seek out those with the highest social status. This motive might have evolved because being close to high-ranking individuals has given people access to resources, territory and mates.

    Both men and women (wrongly) believe women wearing makeup are more interested in casual sex

    A new study suggests that women’s makeup is perceived as a signal of greater interest in casual sex. But the research found evidence that this was actually a “false signal.” The study, which was published in Personality and Individual Differences, examined the relationship between women’s makeup use and sociosexuality.

    Why the Irish Exit Is a Mark of High Moral Character

    The person who leaves the party without telling his friends is an asshole, right? Well, not necessarily. And it took me a while to realize this. Personally, the Irish exit didn't flash its brilliance until I experienced my first post-college networking event -- that distinct void where bleak reality meets stark desperation. Young men wore ill-fitting navy suits instead of jeans to look older. Old men wore scrotum-hugging skinny jeans instead of suits to look younger.

    New research finds there is no “right thing” to say when you want to be supportive

    It feels selfish to fret – it’s the other person who is suffering – but agonising over what to say to a friend in need can be incredibly anxiety provoking. If you want to be supportive (and not make matters worse), what are the right words to say to someone who has experienced a relationship break-up, for instance, or lost their job?

    Emojis can make online messages easier to understand and more believable, study finds

    The use of emojis can impact the effectiveness of online messages, according to research published in the journal Psychology of Popular Media Culture. “The idea for the study came out of a brainstorming session with my co-author Alecka. She is interested in psychology and social media, and I am interested in basic cognition, so studying how we view emojis felt like a perfect mix of our backgrounds if you think about the hypothetical Venn-Diagram,” said T. Alex Daniel of Westfield State University, the corresponding author of the study.

    Feminists Think Sexist Men Are Sexier than "Woke" Men

    Women like bad boys. At least, that’s the story. And there’s lots of writing and anecdotal experience to back that up. Men frequently complain about being “friendzoned,” the idea being that men who are respectful toward their female interests get placed into the role of friend, rather than potential boyfriend. The “pickup artist” community has embraced this concept, teaching men how to behave in assertive, dominant ways that, allegedly, are more successful with women.
