Mother Jones has a list of songs that are played to detainees as a way to keep them disoriented. Now, Mother Jones claims that these are "torture." Since the definition of torture is the infliction of "severe" pain, it seems hard to argue that these songs really qualify. Except for the Barney song, and the theme from Sesame Street.
Why, the more I think about it, that really is inhumane for anyone whose kids are older than six.
