I would like to see the same experiment in the 2010's, to see if there is a difference.

#1 No there isnt. We tryed it as a school experiment. >:) Maybe someday i gonna tape it too. Only once. People just feel uncomfortable when everybody is facing the other way. Interesting to notice is the way everyone looks in an elevator. Their faces just go blank!

We actually have a set of neurons for doing that, they are called Mirror Neurons, and we share those with many vertebrates. 8-)
Let be said this is just one of many variation of this kind of experiments and the results even now are consistently the same.
