    Lightbulb What is the meaning of "behavior reward simulator test group c" ?

    Hey guys, hope you all are doing great.

    As you could see in the title I don't get the meaning of "behavior reward simulator", what is it? Is it an experiment or something? Here is more information about the context:

    In a TV Series called "Siberia" 14 people are supposed to live in a place called "Siberia" for a period of time and try to survive until the end of the Winter. In their settlement there is a kind of huge metal box which has a timer and once in a while makes a weird sound and actually summons other people to check in order to pick up the item that it gives. It is called " The Revealer" in the show. Gist of the matter is that on this box it is written "behavior reward simulator test group c" and I don't get the correct meaning, is it a name of an experiment or something?

    Thank you in advance,

    I don't think it actually means anything. I understand that "Siberia" [actually filmed in Canada] is not a "reality" show; it's a scripted adventure/horror series with actors playing all the parts. Someone needed to think up some words that sounded vaguely scientific to write on the box, and came up with this.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Thanks for answering "Grumpy". Happy to hear that you watch the show, I'm really big on it and my favorite characters are "Sam", "Daniel" and "Johnny". Hope they extend the it for season 2. So it means nothing special just something which sound vaguely scientific. Appreciate it.

    I had never actually heard of the programme before reading your question, but Google's a wonderful thing.....
    Glad you enjoy it, though.
