comment Why do people avoid taking the last “donut”?
I agree with the culture thing - I heard the very same thing in the context of Chinese culture, where it's apparently rude to take the last of anything. The "guests are still hungry" statement makes this tradition a lot clearer - if they werent hungry, there would be more than 1 left.

comment What makes disengaged participants tired / exhausted after corporate meetings?
I've clarified the question to specifically exclude speakers or meeting host. Those people may not feel the effects as acutely as people who are not engaged for an hour.

comment Why people “awaken” to spirituality around age 30?
I have found this link with onset of different mental illnesses. Apparently each has a specific median age of onset. thekimfoundation.org/html/about_mental_ill/statistics.html The kind of "change" that I'm talking about is less researched, but I've seen at least two references to the age 30 as mean age when people become interested in spirituality.

comment Do lonely people get addicted more easily than social counterparts?
@ChrisStronks I agree with the peer context strongly linked to relapse to addictive behaviors. This is why a lot of addictive games strongly push the "Social" element to them. I would say that ALL examples of incredibly addictive video games are social in nature. For example farmville or online MMORPGs. It's possible to quit these games, but when multiple friends are playing them, they will continuously pull each other back into the game.

comment Memory - Remembering a Source
As a programmer, I would suggest that knowing the source is not that important. As long as you can formulate a search query for google or stack exchange sites, you are good. You are bound to find alternatives to the same information you found before. This means remembering keywords from articles is far more important than the author.
