comment Is StackExchange.com Addiction Dangerous?
Stackexchange sites are still relatively new. Sites like hubpages.com have bigger audience, and bigger incentive to write (more badges, plus affiliate revenue). I was writing on that site for quite some time. I think the addiction is due to ranking numbers and social interaction. people like to "grind stats" :)

comment How do people visually recognize their own reflection?
Very interesting! I did notice that with the exception of several people, I did know how most of them looked like before the experiment. So it may very well be the case of different groups of neurons firing.

comment Is happiness a result of cognitive or a side effect of neurobiological processes?
Thank you, what I'm trying to express with "completely independent" is that the cognitive process alone may be responsible for the experience of mind wandering, and stuff like neurotransmitter levels do not play a significant role in the process. I've adjusted the wording of my question. As for the second example, I will think of how the two questions may be split

comment Do lucid dream eyemasks work?
No, there is no reliable cue that has been shown to get integrated into dream content, while remaining recognizable. Highly trained people can recognize light, but there's no evidence that laymen can put on an LED mask and become lucid.

haha, and here I was "wondering" why my questions are edited so frequently. Thank you for the heads up!

comment What makes people easily subscribe to pseudoscientific theories?
I'm wandering if this desire for an "explanation" plagues scientists as well, only in the form of "publication bias", where positive explanations are far more likely to get published than "I tried, but still don't know" ones.
