Shower Thoughts: Does Facebook monitor drug dealing?

From Nights, 9:15 pm on 28 May 2024

Have you ever had a burning question in the back of your mind that you just can't find the answer for, when suddenly, the noise in your brain clears and, in its place, appears the perfect thought.

That's a Shower Thought, and here on Nights we're aiming to answer those unshakeable questions lurking in the back of your mind.

Robin van der Sanden is a postdoctoral fellow at Massey University's SHORE & Whariki Research Centre and picks up the phone to provide some answers.
