ahhh good 'ole chapter 6.

the most controversial of all chapters, wherein we find that Manito has been having an illicit gay affair behind Rosita's back and secretly taken phone snaps are now appearing all over facebook!!!! eek the suspense, the drama, the controversy!!!! exclamation keys will be breaking on keyboards from Warsaw to Juarez!!!!

this is such a must read chapter :lol: :-D

Problems with the reliability of memory have been getting more publicity. Now they're even creeping into the presidential election.
Quote:
On Saturday, (Trump) the real-estate magnate insisted that after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, he watched news footage of "thousands of thousands of people" celebrating in northern New Jersey -- "where you have large Arab populations," in his words. Journalists have searched news archives for any evidence of such footage and turned up empty handed. Public officials and law enforcement in New Jersey say Trump's account is utterly false.

But Trump's assertion might not be a bald-faced lie. Psychologists suggest that people unconsciously fabricate memories all the time, and that Trump might have done the same. "I can't say that he's not lying," said Deryn Strange, a psychologist at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. "But my research, and the research of my colleagues, certainly supports a more charitable interpretation: that this is a false memory."

..."I can easily conceive how he could have developed this memory," Strange said. "All you need is a suggestion."
