Assuming you believe lie detector results, it sounds like they were just measuring how honest the participants were about how many naughty words they new. And from that perspective it goes without saying that there would be a correlation between being honest and reporting more words.

Also, as regards holding back on the actual use of naughty words (which, BTW, they didn't measure), they need to consider the difference between "dishonesty" and "manners".

Comment Re:Former CVS pharmacist here (Score 2) 372

I'm the parent of a kid whose doctor has said we should have a pair of Epipens around and had the joy of paying quite a few for them out of pocket for a few year.

I was slightly annoyed when I learned of the Adrenaclick as no one had mentioned it previously at the doctors office, though a quick call to them got the Rx changed to the Adrenaclick which is an order of magnitude cheaper than the Epipen... and a generic version is also welcome news.

Interesting... your only complaint with my comment was who I credited... yet you didn't follow the logical course of actions to their conclusion.

I'm not sure if you are aware... but books or speeches do little on their own. Either they inspire legislation, or other action... like litigation, which is what happened and why involuntary confinement is so limited today.
