  • Inspiring Neil Gaiman

    http://www.neilgaiman.com…/demon-days.asp I think we can all agree that Neil Gaiman is a very imaginative and atmospheric writer.

For too long, the rising threat of the undead has been ignored or glossed over with empty sound bites by our complacent political establishment. The rhetoric continues to pour forth from city hall and the empty message is getting through loud and clear; If we…

  • Are you looking at me?

    http://cognitivedaily.com/?p=11 I do hope Munger and Munger keep up their excellent (almost) daily reporting of interesting recently published cognitive psychology papers. They aim to explain actual research in simple language but without simplifying the conceptual complexity. So far they are succeeding admirably. Whenever I dip into current editions of psychology journals I find stuff that,…

  • How the Pope is chosen

    Any poodle under ten inches high is a toy. Almost always a toy is an imitation of something grown-ups use. Popes with unclipped hair are called corded popes. If a Pope’s hair is allowed to grow unchecked, it becomes extremely long and twists into long strands that look like ropes. When it is shorter it…
