Fifty Facts that Should Change the World

Posted by Martin Poulter on 20 May 2004

I bought this book recently and was a bit disappointed. The facts are very thought-provoking, but some seem arbitrary or even dubiously factual. All the research for the book seems to have been done on the Web. The author is alarmed that there is no mention of God in the EU constitution- why?

I recommend reading a list of the facts rather than the whole book. Fortunately here’s a blog post with the facts and some notes.

The Economics of Faking Orgasm – No, really

Posted by Martin Poulter on 18 May 2004

A layman’s summary of some fascinating research applying economic reasoning to questions of sex and honesty. Worth blogging for the quote “Sex and academic research complement each other nicely, since you can do either one while thinking about the other.”

Stockstock

Posted by misterchristophe on 11 May 2004

Stockstock challenges entrants to knock up three-minute movies constructed from the same 40-minute film stock compilation tape of old US infomercials, educational films and forgotten B movies. See:

http://www.stockstock.org/

An in particular the Oppositional Libidinal Potentiality, in which men and dogs stage an epic battle against the massed forces of women and monkeys (“Women take the preparations seriously. Men do not. Women win”). See:

I saw this and thought of Martin.

Fun with http://www.tripadvisor.com and humorous place names. Fancy staying at the Big Horn Lodge, or taking a trip to Minge House? And I’m not even going to mention the The Black Cock Inn Cider…

Arguably Not Safe For Work because of explicit male nudity, this short comedy film made in Cardiff is worth blogging for its exceptionally catchy song.
