How to stop fisticuffs (Serious report)

Tempers can fray, there are difficult times of the month, on occasion there is nothing you'd like better than knock Friar Tuck out of someone you generally like....

Interesting piece in the Economist/New Scientist. It is the third bystander who gets involved who decides whether it is going to get physical, if the first two stay with the script, "Calm down, etc". If the third person takes sides it will tend to end badly, if they also say, "Calm the feck down" it typically will.

Hey, that's pretty interesting (in a geekish sort of way*). The bystander effect's been pretty much orthodoxy for years.

Now, if only there'd been a third man on that balcony it might have all ended peacefully.




*Geek, and proud.
