Lack of news is the best news?


Ten years ago I was a difficult teenager and regularly got into some dubious stories. For example, one day I was on a Saturday overcast in the desert town of Priozersk without a penny in my pocket, and I urgently needed to buy a medicine. I did not find anything better than asking for money from passersby. But if in Moscow or in St. Petersburg to informal youth, shooting ten rubles, are treated with benevolent indifference, then in provincial Priozersk I aroused keen curiosity among the respondents. The person who added me the missing amount, after that, contrary to expectations, did not lose interest in me, but, on the contrary, went with me to the pharmacy, watched how I make purchases, and then, when we left this pharmacy and I finally accepted my a tablet, hinted that it would be nice to pay now, namely to retire to the nearest bushes and have sex there.
I was very surprised. According to my ideas, borrowed by this man thirty rubles absolutely did not cost such a reward. Therefore, I tried to mildly deny, but in response, my interlocutor demonstrated that he has a chainsaw with him. And he added that I, in fact, have only two options: to have sex or be cut to pieces. I honestly were not satisfied with both, but I considered the chances of running away as dubious (physical training was never my strong point), and there was absolutely no one to call for help: in the city of Priozersk, at nine o'clock in the evening, there is a deep night, and there is no street literally not a soul. So I had to say that I'm not that refusing, but I want, as a decent person, first to walk and chat. And we began to cut circles around the city, and I made sure that these wanderings led us to the railway station: I naively hoped that there would be a police, but alas, there was not a single policeman at Priozersk railway station, and there was only an unlit park with one side, a dump on the other, a railway depot with a third and a thicket near the river with a fourth. And in the middle - a tiny illuminated asphalt patch, through which we with the new acquaintance and circled the next three hours: he to me, I from him.
And all these three hours, without ceasing for a second and controlling the timbre of the voice so that he was not afraid, I maintained a secular conversation. Every time my interlocutor remembered that he is wasting his time and it's time to turn on the chainsaw and drive me into the thickets, I answered: "Wait, I did not have time to tell you another cool thing!" At this place in it for the incomprehensible I was awakened by politeness, and he said: "Okay, let's tell you quickly." The most ridiculous circumstance is that all this time I was talking only about biology. However, this is logical: I also do not know anything about it so far, so that I can broadcast for three hours without stopping. During this time, I managed to expound to my interlocutor (basically I turned to the chainsaw, of course) the entire systematics of the living world; my enemy even shared my sincere indignation that the protists are a garbage heap into which the unicellular ancestors of fungi, the ancestors of plants and the ancestors of animals are dumped like a horrible one. I outlined all the reactions of photosynthesis, without missing either nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate or ribulose-bisphosphate carboxylase - it is hardly possible to repeat this feat without a chainsaw! - and my interlocutor was seriously inspired by the new fact for him that plants, it turns out, eat only water (with dissolved minerals) and carbon dioxide and build from them all their proteins, fats and carbohydrates. And at the moment when I was going to move from biochemistry to the structure and work of the human nervous system (you can easily talk about this all night!) People finally met the station, meeting the last, midnight train from St. Petersburg, including a flock of local workers youth with polyethylene bottles of beer. They watched us from afar for some time, and then they asked: "The girl, will you help?" "Yes !!!" - I screamed, rushed to them and was rescued: my unsuccessful fan waved a chainsaw, quarreled and went into the night, and the boys threw a jacket on me, gave me their disgusting beer, calmed down and put me on that very midnight train that took me to the forest to friends.
But if I still had to read a chainsaw lecture also on higher nervous activity, then it would be worth starting, of course, with the stress and the ways of reaction to it. The fact is that the above story is a good example of biased activity. I had absolutely no thoughtful plan of salvation, I did not try to arrange for the interlocutor to break the template and not even deliberately delayed the time. I simply had no idea what to do in this situation, and therefore unconsciously chose the most habitual form of behavior for me: talk about biology. All animals in difficult situations do the same thing - though, they usually have a simpler behavior.
The concept of biased activity was first introduced by the classic of ethology Nicholas Tinbergen. He cites the example of fighting birds, who, not knowing who wins the fight, can suddenly stop it - temporarily or permanently - and do something completely outsiders. Tinbergen, in particular, observed larks who, in the midst of a fighting clash, begin to look for food on the ground; starlings and drakes, who pause in a fight to brush feathers, and then pounce on each other with the same fervor; silver gulls, which immediately before the attack begin to pick up material for the nest - then, gathered with spirit, discard these twigs and attack the opponent, and immediately after that, in order to calm down, they fly further to collect twigs, although there may not be a nest nearby .
