I would remain skeptical of the 80-20% claim without any sources to verify that.

Iron Man 3 simply was not shot in 3D but had a few scenes added in post-production (through the process of post-conversion). That explains it all.

I don't think it does. This movie had no 3d effects what so ever. No even a little. I kept checking.

The other movie goers could have all been zombies and failed to notice.

So I have a pretty active and sometimes paranoid mind sometimes, but something odd happened tonight.

My wife had won a prescreeing to see the new movie iron man three in 3d.

A few minutes into the film i noticed that nothing was actually in 3d. I took of my glasses, and it was a regular film. Then I looked around and everyone is still wereing their glasses. Thinking there might be something wrong with me, I alert my wife that the movie is not actually in 3d. She takes her glasses of checks a few times, and realizes that I'm right and continues to watch the movies without her glasses. I check occasionally during the action sequences to see if Mabey it turned on or something but... Nop... It was a non 3d movie all the way through.

At least no one that I could see never removed their 3d glasses. Very strange. I felt like the group was being tested.

It's scary how suggestable and unaware people are. All we needed to be told was that the movie was 3d and here are the glasses and everyone ( except my wife and I as far as I could tell) wore them for the whole movie.

What do you think, was this some experiment on the sugestability of the populace, or did the kid in the projector room just put in the wrong one and hardly anyone noticed?

Even if it were an accident, what does it say about how easy it is to control people?
I gotta say Seeker, sounds to me like either an honest mistake or a case of the oh sh**'s..
You know the moment you realize you screwed up so bad that there is no fixing the problem..

But it does say a lot about the people who sat there and left the glasses on, they never even challenge the validity of the claim of the 3D addition.
Most people seem to be easily deceived due to their innate nature to build social relationships, which are internally needing of some sort of trust.
Power of Suggestion depends on our social drawbacks, and focuses on our tossing of blind trust around..

Here's a social experiment for those of you who haven't personally noticed how ridiculous Power of Suggestion is:

Go to a busy mall or store and introduce yourself as "Mike", say a few words to validate your social relation with that person and then have someone else come and ask them what your name was... Almost guaranteed that they put blind trust in you to provide your real name, in order to establish that social link.(Most people will say "his name is Mike", not "he said his name was Mike")

(I personally liked going to the mall and saying as "Hi my name is Mike, do you think the blue shoes or the red shoes would look better on my big feet?")

Agreed, but it does yield results which seem surprising to some..

It's not suprising we have to trust. You have to trust the clerk, that he didn't poison your apple and your uncle on christmas, that he doesn't set the house on fire.

Sounds like an experiment to me, but it doesn't really show how easy people are controlled, more like how easy people are deceived.

I think the real think you should be wondering though, is was this experiment one to test tolerance to deception? or was there some background conditioning going on?

I'm glad you brought that up. My wife won it from work. She works for intel. The emphasis on new technologies is rampant in iron man movies.  It's a good blend of interests. But at least half probably much more of the audience are intel employees.

It's possible then that it might have been just a screening of intel employees to see who/which, if any, were above a certain line or layer of awareness, or something a little more sinister as in conditioning.. or like you said it could be paranoia, though I doubt that coming from you.
I recently watched a documentary on mind control, and what we knew about mind control up until 1973.. What is known about the study and evolution of mind control since 1973 is virtually nothing, so it makes you wonder what devices are being used against us.. The cell phone comes to mind.. I left work just under 2 years ago, and returned about 3 months ago.. The change in peoples behaviour at smoko breaks is phenomenal. The general chit-chat and conversations between friends and colleges has been replaced by facebook games on their damn phones.. The left side of my brain says this is just the joys of technology.. The right side says it's part of a hidden agenda..

Well I am a kinda paranoid. Actually more than most. I tech self defense for a living.  I don't think I really believe it was an experiment, but it makes me wonder. It's precisely the kind of thing a corporation might do.

So you noticed the discrepancy that it wasn't 3-d. It made you wonder, it made you seek answer. And like you say, it's precisely the kind of thing a big corporation might do, which is probably healthy questioning as opposed to outright paranoia verging on conspiracy theory..
I guess this should be chalked up to experience and put at the back of your mind for later analysis.. The only other alternative is to take it to the next level, break into the theatre, check the 3-d glasses for conditioning devises, test the popcorn isn't laced with LSD, hire PI's to follow all the other movie goers.. :lol:
TBH I think there was an ulterior motive behind the free tickets for the simple reason that corporations large or small very rarely give anything away for free. There is always a catch, an intention beyond generosity. Some folk will disagree with this quoting they get a Ham at Christmas from their work.. But they should ask themselves if the Christmas ham has more to do with staff moral or boardroom bragging rights than general generosity or thanks.. IMO genuine generosity is as rare as dodo's in the corporate world.
