In preparing a talk for a workshop I've organized tomorrow, I realized there was one simple experiment that would tie several pieces together neatly. Unfortunately, I hadn't run it. But I figured, hey, I can get data quick on Amazon Mechanical Turk.
Turk let me down. I don't know why, but today there aren't a lot of fish biting. So I turn to my usual, pre-Turk subject pool: you. The experiment takes 1-2 minutes -- it's really just 3 questions. As an added inducement to get people to run the experiment now, I'll be posting the results later this week or early next week.
