Television Is Arousing

Ever wonder what happens in your sympathetic nervous system while you watch television?
Above is a plot of the electrical conductivity of one participant's palm while watching two minutes of ER.
Each peak represents a skin conductance response, which reflects activity in the sympathetic nervous system.
And we can measure and plot that activity.
How cool.

I wonder what the graph would look like if it was measuring me yesterday the moment the Browns traded up and took Brady Quinn at #22?

Nice draft pick, but the Browns always find a way to draft a player I despised in college. (also see Braylon Edwards & Kellen Winslow Jr.)

It is a plot by Browns management to drive you crazy.

I just find it odd that there will be two NFL quarterbacks next year whose high school was within 0.25 miles of where I lived.

I lived literally next to Bloomington South HS (Rex Grossman), and I lived about two blocks from Dublin-Coffman (Quinn).

And in each case, I lived there after they had played and while they were in college.
