Nothing seems to ensnare me like loosely related information. Readying through wikipedia on a subject I recently encountered (see previous post), I ran across the Breaching Experiment.

'The inexplicable do-gooder': Social science researcher Earl R. Babbie writes that "it is a social rule that ordinary citizens should not pick up garbage from the street, or mend street signs, or otherwise fix problems." Babbie claims that people have negative reactions when they see somebody fixing something that isn't 'their job' to fix.

I found that interesting.

I'll escape this trap... Maybe I should visit Arizona.. Haven't been there for a while... But now I'm being vulgar. :)
