Grey Thoughts
Science - Dangerous new discovery
The washington times reports that scientists have discovered that inhaling a hormone called Oxytocin more the recipient more trusting.
Could unscrupulous stores pump the air full of oxytocin to boost sales?

Perhaps, said University of Iowa neurologist Antonio Damasio, but advertising already uses tricks to get people to trust a brand that probably work "exactly the same way."

Talk about naive, this is another extra boost to peoples ability to manipulate others. We already outlaw spiking of drinks, especially with date rape drugs....hopefully this will be put in the same category. Although preventing administration of a scent is a lot harder.
