Go Go Gadget Interesting Filler!

I’ve got a few posts that I’ll be finishing and putting up this weekend.  One’s a response to some questions that my good friend Jonathan asked me in email, and another on the exciting topic of gerrymandering.  For tonight, though, I’m off to celebrate some successes with coworkers, so I leave you with this interesting bit of experimental philosophy1:


1 For the record, I’m unaccountably annoyed at called thought experiments like this “experimental philosophy” as if we were trying to make science of a field of inquiry which isn’t particularly related to science at all. Is the label accurate? Well, assuming you take the steps to properly quantify and analyze the results, then yes it is, but just quizzing people with thought experiments is not inherently scientific.
