Interesting article. Apparently sightings of big cats in the wild have
increased dramatically in the last couple of decades. It’s almost certainly
hysteria. Like the UFO sightings in the 50s-70s. But why?

I hope this isn’t a trend, or already a widespread problem.

Good summary of how the online reaction to Daft Punks new single has
progressed. We’ve been listening to various fan edits and fake leaks
all week, and enjoyed them all!
This morning’s ‘leaks’ have previously unheard lyrics, and the latest
rumors are that the single will be premiering on radio tonight. The
wait is almost over! (But what if Daft Punk’s edit isn’t as good as
the fan edits?!)

This paper is pretty interesting about how children perceive the world
and struggle to distinguish between what they’ve imagined and what’s
real. I started reading from the bottom of page 25, about the
experiment where kids are asked to imagine a monster in a box, and
whether its really there. They say “no”, but then often behave like
maybe it is real.
The paper considers a few possible reasons children do this, but also
points out that even adults do this! How many of us struggle to go to
sleep after watching something disturbing or scary?
