Anyone who has spent a little time a psychology course is probably familiar with the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment, wherein volunteers playing the part of guards and prisoners quickly (and eerily) adapted to those roles, and we collectively got a harsh look at the sadist and submissive that lurks just beneath the surface in all of us.

What I wasn’t familiar with, however, was footage from the 6 day experiment, which you can see to the right.  Creeeeeepy.

    If you are interested in this topic, there is a areally good german Movie Called “Das Experiment” which is loosely based onthe Stanford prison experiment.

    It’s really good. Check it out.
