5 monkeys are in a cage that contains a staircase with a big reward at the top. at the beginning all of the monkeys want that reward and try to climb
the stairs. when one monkey tries to go up the stairs they are sprayed with water. after a few repetitions, no monkey out of the five will even touch
the stairs, even when the threat of being sprayed again is taken away without their knowledge.
5 more monkeys are introduced, and have not experienced being sprayed with water, so naturally will want to climb the stairs.
the chimps who were subject to the punishment, however, will attackthe one one who tries to climb the stairs as a group, and the others watching will
never try to climb the stairs.
5 more monkeys are introduced and go for the stairs to get their big pile of bananas or whatever it would be. all of the chimps will attack the
newcomers who try to climb the stairs. even after not knowing why they cant do something, they will continue to enforce the punishment for those that
eventually, no monkey that had been subject wo the spraying will be in the cage and yet no monkey will attemp to climb the stairs
the moral is that we need someone to tell us when we are doing something wrong, but it will be sooooooo much better for them to truly see why doing
those little insignificant good things are right, otherwise they wont learn from it. no good deed goes unpunished, so sometimes in a world of laws the
risks outweigh the benefits of being good, and generous. i for one am just a bit happy they had this show and are actually putting their money where
their mouth is.
heh, in reality, a street criminal on the show would probably gain a bit of respect to be exposed on that show. " see i told you i got dat money jus
layin all ova the sidewalk.. bitches were like, this was all setup to see what you would do in this situation, and i was all like, f--- im keepin it,
idgas" do they care if the actual responsible people in their comunity think of them?
so all in all, no bad came out of it.
you cant condition people anymore to a snitch/surveillance society bc its pretty much already here, why dont we at least see good things for what they
are? in this situation, the good outweighs any bad from it, but thats my opinion. let me ask you this,
would you watch a marathon of this, (without forming conspiracy possibilities the whole time) or watch a marathon of jersey shore/all that other
plastic, slutty, bs?
trust me people, priorities here..... then we can take down the surveillance state to only what directly affects businesses. if the cops were so good,
they would be catching more people by using ivestigation, not stagnating, growing corrupt, and having machines do his job
=P sorry for the length, it goes a bit off topic, but its all tied together, good luck to you, and hope you are having luck with your significant
other "issue" (im trying to be psychic over the internet)just remember its not an issue its just a challenge and there is a good and bad way of
solving it (plz let me know if i ballparked it, or if im way offbase here)
