Now landing midweek, we're delving into the extremely complex topic of human reaction. Where do the responses we actively demonstrate every day come from? What makes one man cheer the death penalty as justice served and another view it as the failure of law? Are these reactions taught or intrinsic? It's a road that branches in as many directions as people choose to walk, but we take a stab at figuring out some of the signposts along the way.

Good show as usual.

I was waiting to figure out what the title of the show was referring to (for some reason I thought \'Spider Solitaire\' was a comic book character), and even when it became obvious I couldn\'t help but laugh out loud at the time, much to the amusement of my co-workers.

Here\'s a stupid little anecdote about human reaction: when Lando said the word \"fantabulous\", I couldn’t help but mentally cringe. To explain, on one of the local television stations here in Australia there’s an advertisement about a local psychic convention in which a tie-dyed, peppy woman with a gap between her front teeth appears and exclaims \"Fantabulous!\"

And so now every time I hear or read that horrible word my mind conjures up her face and I remember how much I loathe that vacuous ad, the women herself, and everything they stand for, namely pseudoscience and intellectually barren new-age mysticism.

I would punch her in the face if I didn’t already have a two star threat level.
