interesting experiment, but with methodological flaws.  you believed it 
would matter.  you knew which one you were playing, and that it "should" 
matter.  you then perceived that it did matter.

you might be right, who knows?  but the point is that this is not convincing

no, these are your perceptions. potentially, though not necessarily, biased
by your beliefs.
