This article (Lichtenstein et al. 2016) has been retracted by the Editors-in-Chief at the request of authors James Lichtenstein, Nicholas DiRenzo and Zachary David. After publication the authors found anomalies in the raw data that were collected. The conclusions presented based on these data are therefore unreliable. Katherine Zhao, Sara Geary, Sam Ministero and Inon Scharf agree with this retraction. Jonathan Pruitt does not agree with this retraction. Karen Knutson, Candice Kuo, Hayley Brittingham and Henry Rice have not responded to correspondence from the Editors-in-Chief or the Publisher about this retraction.
