The PF wishes you good luck with all those final projects, papers, and exams and hopes this issue serves as a nice study break.
The secret editors of The Pink Flamingo have been working hard to think of a way to help you prepare for those upcoming final exams. Our answer was to provide you with a fun distraction and a way to practice your test-taking skills. That’s right, hone your test-taking skills with the First Annual Human Development Baby Picture Matching Contest!
Click here to see what cute kids we were and reach the survey. Take your best guesses. The person who gets the most correct answers (and successfully navigates our host of tie-breakers) wins a Psychology and Human Development Club T-Shirt. Make sure to enter your name and email address at the end so we can give you your shirt if you are the winner. Results will be revealed on Wednesday, December 19th.

Who won last month’s contest and will be immortalized as a trivia genius on the World Wide Web (and get a candy bar)? Read on to find out!
Question: Which lobe of the brain is believed to play the most significant role in judgment and decision-making?
Answer: We actually had in mind “the frontal lobe” as the answer to this question, but student Shanna Sanford responded with “Ventromedial Prefrontal Cortex,” and it sounded so impressive that we just had to give her credit. We may have to get an official ruling from Dr. Lorenz before we award the candy bar, but congratulations, Shanna, on showing up your professors!
Question: Which faculty member helped to support herself through college by serving as the culinary artist (i.e., cook) for a fraternity house at an Ivy League school?
Answer: Nobody managed a correct answer to this question even after we eliminated about half of your options by using “herself” in the question! We’re not giving up, though. Having the correct answer to this question will now be the tie-breaker on the Human Development Baby Picture Matching Contest.
