The Null Device
From July 1, the Victorian government will require the state's
proliferation of Kennett-era gambling venues to have clocks and natural light
Why? Because gambling venues traditionally eliminate any cues as to what
time it is outside, even to the point of keeping the air temperature and
humidity constant, so that gamblers become disoriented, losing sense of time
and suspending their better judgment. (Tellingly, similar techniques are used
by interrogators to weaken prisoners' resolve.)
