Dear friends, friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends,

I don't normally use the blog for such things, but I need your help and participation. We're conducting a social experiment that categorizes how people respond to cute things. Some people squeal. Some people look hypnotized. Some people grit their teeth and squeeze the air.

We'd love it if you could help us out by recording your reaction to a video clip of something cute (aka "stimulus" as the scientists say). All you need is yourself, a web cam and a desire to have your heart melt a little. Below are a few steps to follow. We'll prompt you as you go along, but this is to prep you. We promise, it's easy. And worth it. Five minutes or so.

With your help, we'll advance cute reaction research for the benefit of all humankind. Thank you.
