I'm so super duper stoked right now, I get to go on an high tech easter egg hunt, like when I was a kid!!!

I'm salivating right now at the prospect of gaining that reward, that oh so sweet "candy".




Classical conditioning (also known as Pavlovian or respondent conditioning) is a learning process in which an innate response to a potent stimulus comes to be elicited in response to a previously neutral stimulus; this is achieved by repeated pairings of the neutral stimulus with the potent stimulus. The basic facts about classical conditioning were discovered by Ivan Pavlov through experiments with dogs. Together with operant conditioning, classical conditioning became the foundation of behaviorism, a school of psychology which was dominant in the mid-20th century and is still an important influence on the practice of psychological therapy and the study of animal behaviour (ethology). Classical conditioning is now the best understood of the basic learning processes, and its neural substrates are beginning to be understood. ...

Pavlov noticed that the dogs in the experiment began to salivate in the presence of the technician who normally fed them, rather than simply salivating in the presence of food. Pavlov called the dogs' anticipatory salivation "psychic secretion." From his observations he predicted that a stimulus could become associated with food and cause salivation on its own, if a particular stimulus in the dog's surroundings was present when the dog was given food. In his initial experiments, Pavlov presented a stimulus and then gave the dog food; after a few repetitions, the dogs started to salivate in response to the stimulus. Pavlov called the stimulus the conditioned (or conditional) stimulus (CS) because its effects depend on its association with food.[7] He called the food the unconditioned stimulus (US) because its effects did not depend on previous experience. Likewise, the response to the CS was the conditioned response (CR) and that to the US was the unconditioned response (UR). The timing between the presentation of the CS and US affects both the learning and the performance of the conditioned response. Pavlov found that the shorter the interval between the CS (e.g. metronome) and the appearance of the US (e.g. food), the stronger and quicker the dog learned the conditioned response.

I'm disapointed.

I learned today that more than 1 person can catch the same Pokemon.

And I was all excited, I was catching them all around my neighborhood thinking that I was keeping little kids from getting them.

Today, my dreams to be the Pokegrinch died.

Well, no, not really. Not a condition I recommend for everyone. But believe it or not, I can actually be fun at parties. I'm still called "the party man" back home.

On the money. I think the only question left to ask is which.
Which candidate will be the first to pander to the poki-crowd and take it to the street.

You do realize this is how most games work right? What's the point of playing if not for a reward. Be it physical, mental, or emotional.

You've actually just discovered a secret to game programming? Congratulations.

Says a lot about the state of things when all the world is in turmoil and this fad comes along and sweeps so many people away and a thread about the knee jerk reactions of the public goes almost unnoticed on the finest conspiracy web site in the world.
