  • The infamous Stanley Milgram experiment instructed participants to press a button (though it wasn't big and red) that they were told would deliver an electric shock to a human victim. In spite of clear warnings written on the switches and vocal complaints from the victim, most people pressed the button repeatedly when the experimenter told them to do so.

Irrelevant, this is more like Punch-Clock Villain.

Potential candidate for new Big Red Button page image.

I GIMP'd together a control panel featuring a BRB and a molly guard; thought I'd get some feedback on it replacing the current one (Kim Possible isn't likely to have been seen by enough people to warrant having it as the page image). Take a look and let me know what you think.

This is as it currently sits on my hard drive, without being resized to better fit on the page. If this were used, I figure the sides would have to be trimmed a bit, and the whole image scaled down. If the text itself needs to be changed, I left the project as several layers in GIMP, to allow for changing the text without changing anything else (I figure I'll eventually want a button for random stuff like "Release Flying Monkeys").

Image changing suggestions should go to the Image Pickin' forum. As it is, I prefer the current; it's amusing and shows what the button does.

Okay, I'll move it there.
