Library Eye Contact Experiment Declared “Gap Year Bullshit” By Scientists
A psychology experiment conducted outside the Central Library of the University of Edinburgh campus has been declared “gap year bullshit” by actual psychologists. The ones with degrees and everything.
Dr. Malcolm Fraser BSc BA MSc PhD MPsHons MDMA MGMT ABBA MoMA #legit spoke exclusively to Flipside about the student experiment.
“Today people were being asked to ‘connect on a human level’ by staring into each other’s eyes for a minute,” said Dr Fraser whilst trying to fit all of his degrees back into his coat pocket. “This is clearly some hippy-dippy, gap year bullshit.
“If any psychology experiment has the phrase ‘connect on a human level’ in its brief, the exact same results can be displayed by smoking a joint and watching Cool Runnings on repeat whilst listening to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Seriously man, you will understand Us and Them after doing that.”
Flipside’s own science correspondent Billy Nomates (no relation) has declared that the organisers of this experiment suffered a severe addiction to Humans of New York.
