comment How to use Mechanical Turk for longer studies (i.e., 30 minutes+)?
What is the main motivation for using mturk (or generally, online workforce)? Is it because you need more participants than you can recruit using conventional methods? Because you want a long study that won't require your participants to come to the lab every day? Some other reason?

comment Do people estimate combined probabilities differently to uncombined ones?
Welcome to CogSci. This sounds like an interesting question, but after the example in the last paragraph, I'm not sure I understand what you mean by cumulative and non cumulative. The term cumulative as I know it refers to questions like "what is the probability of at least 4 heads in tosses", while non cumulative would be "what is the probability of exactly 4 heads in 6 tosses". Is that what you mean? If not, can you be more specific and define what you mean by the term?

comment Math or Physics: Which is the more relevant background to enter Cognitive Sciences and Psychology?
+1. In physics, most experiments are so reliably reproducible, that you rarely encounter the need for solid knowledge of statistics. At least for me, this was a weak point for some time after moving to cognitive science...

comment Is there a variance in acceptance of conspiracy theories by occupation?
The article you link to is actually a book review about this book: amazon.com/… . From the review it sounds like an interesting book, but doesn't answer your question.
