Occasionally science reaches new heights; it attains unexpected successes; it moves forwards human knowledge, not merely by a step, but by a mile. This isn't one of those things. On the other hand, a big woohoo for operant conditioning and pop culture! more »

A car programme for those who don't like car programmes

10/22/06 | by Adam | Categories: Silly, YouTube

The Nimblebrain blog logs referrer details, including the search string used to get here. Usually they're pretty mundane ("nimblebrain", "ritchie blog") but sometimes they're just odd. Some examples, in no particular order or importance: alternative… more »

I'm a sucker for trivia sites. The best I'm aware of is "The Straight Dope" which has the most entertaining bits of patter about the oddest set of questions. To person who swore that baked potatoes should always be wrapped in tinfoil with the shiny… more »
