In a 1974 volume of the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, this remarkable bit of research was published on the self-treatment of “Writer’s Block”:
I’m not sure if you can read the tiny block of comments left by the reviewer, but it would appear that not only was the paper deemed scientifically sound using advanced technologies like lemon juice and x-rays, but it was also “a pleasure to examine.”
Ah, what it must have been like to be a sardonic scientific researcher in 1974! And seriously, this was actually published.
Thanks to Jesse for this great find.
