YAWN

OK, here's something cool I just noticed. If someone announces on an IRC channel that they are yawning, it actually spreads to other people on the channel as well. I mean, I understand if you put up a picture of a yawn, the visual cues can get you yawning, but through text? Is the intention truly enough? Do we really want to be so desperately a part of a crowd? (Well, obviously this works only on some people, but that it works at all is amazing :-)

Yawning has amazing power. We truly are social creatures.

(And BTW, if this entry made you yawn, drop a comment =).

The power of suggestion is not to be underestimated, as hypnosis has shown. And no, I'm not talking about "ping, you're a chicken" -type of sideshow garbage, but helping with phobias, anasthetics and performance training.
