From now on, you're prisoner number 6!! Shut up and obey the rules of this prison!!!
I'm really confused!! Can you tell me what is going right now?
Experiment Day 2
I want to sleep in a comfortable, warm bed.
You know, you look like your mom really f*** you up when she had you.
Line up based on your ID number! Count starts from ID #1 to #10!!
Experiment Day 3
Oh, yeah! I'll get you those. Show me the way!
What a stupid thing to do! I would not do something like that.
Hey, Mr. guard. Prisoner #2 has hidden something in his room. If you could give me a nice room and some good food, I'll tell you where it is.
Today is the first day of the study. James did not expect this. He was arrested in his own house, blindfolded, and taken to jail as a criminal. Then he was stripped naked, had his belongings taken away, and was given a white uniform. Also, the prison guards called him not by his name but by "# 6". He was very shocked and confused.
Experiment Day 4
You, #5, be sure to do 30 push-ups for what you did. You, #6, will sit on his back while he does the push-ups. #8, shut your mouth next time, or else I'm going to make you do 50 push-ups.
At 2:30 am, the prisoners were awakened from sleep from the sound of the whistle. The guards pulled everyone out of jail and began "counting". James was very tired and sleepy from this study. Since he was treated as a criminal, he was forced to sleep on cold, hard prison beds. During the "count", one of the prisoners was harassed by the guard.
Experiment Day 5
He seems like he's out of his mind. I wonder if I'll be like him one day. When will I be able to get out of this place?
Ever since the rebellion yesterday, the guards became more aggressive and derisive towards the prisoners. The prisoners became more dependent. Also, some prisoners become dependent on the guard for everything that they would often tell on other prisoners to please the guard.
Experiment Day 6
Listen, you're not #6. You're James. My name is Dr. Zimbardo. I'm a psychologist, not a prison superintendent. This is not a real prison. It's just an experiment. Those that you have met are students, not prisoners. Now it's the end of the experiment. Let's go.
James's prison mate #5 disobeyed the prison guard by talking back to the guard. The prison guard ordered him to do 30 push-ups and made James sit on his back while he is doing it. Sometimes the guard would even step on the prisoner's back while he did push-ups. James wants to get out of prison life.
Prisoner #8 has been acting very strange today. He went around telling everyone "You can't leave. You can't quit." Soon he began to act crazy like screaming, cursing, and crying uncontrollably. James wonders when this will all of this end.
You can't leave. You can't quit. Hahahahaha!!!
Prisoner #8 was released yesterday. After seeing him acting crazy, James does not want to be like him. A voice in his head tells him that he had enough of everything in this prison. He doesn't want to be harassed by the guards, forced to do push-ups, and clean the toilet anymore. Finally, James breaks out crying hysterically. Then a man came in...
