Maybe this explains why we see kids zoned out, open-mouthed, unaffected by
external stimulus glued to the Cartoon Channel (or similar animation venue).
Conspiracy buffs could have a field day with this. I can see it
now...conspiracy theorists claiming evil advertisers are plotting to program
kids to buy the latest toy fad, or sugar coated cereal by employing 12fps
animation. It sounds like a potential movie of the week, or perhaps the
next episode of Dexter or Jimmy Neutron. ;-)
FYI: If you search with "The Sky Is Falling, The Science Is Fine" the
Discover article is in the book review section.
I do not knowingly work for any purveyors of mind altering animation; but
then again, if I did, would I know? ;-) oops!
