Successful psychology studies

So Jim Dandy and I were walking through Sproul Plaza today on the campus of the University of California, when two guys flashing a handful of money asked us if we wanted to make a dollar. All we had to do was let them take pictures of our faces. They are conducting a study on how well people remember faces when shown for just a few seconds. So we did our part and walked away each a dollar richer. However, the study was put to the test about 45 minutes later when we walked back through Sproul and the same guys flagged us down to have our pictures taken for a dollar. Beaudry and I glanced at each other, shrugged, and said, “Sure, why not?” I feel like I should tell them not to spend much more time on their study. We got their answer right there.
