OK, here is the fourth room that has been submitted into the Room With A Cue Project. Who lives here?
I spend quite a bit of time traveling, so am always on the look out for unusual things to do in hotel rooms. I saw this recently, and tried it a few moments ago. It was disgusting and now I have to explain the mess to the hotel staff. Don’t do it.
Hi there. Greetings from New York City (here for meetings and some filming). OK, here is the third room that has been submitted into the Room With A Cue Project. What do you think this time?
For those who couldn’t make it, there is a detailed review of my talk (and all of the other talks via links) of the CFI Weird Science day at No Double Standards here.
OK, here is the second room that has been submitted into the Room With A Cue Project. Once again, test your intuitive snooping ability here!

Who was the mystery occupant? And an opportunity to have your living room analysed!
I am speaking here today (if you do come along, say hi) so this will be brief.
Update: Nice to see so many people at the event. Thanks for supporting CFI.
Also, this is a great video of the stunning stunt in slow motion, showing that (i) it can be performed and (ii) it looks great in slow motion. Enjoy.
I am filming today so this will be brief. I thought the ‘one sentence at a time’ project worked really well, and I am convinced that there is something that could be developed here as a great research tool. So, two questions. First, are you on for doing it again now that we have learned a few lessons from the pilot? Second, it would be great to have some really good opening lines – any ideas? Feel free to post some ideas and comment on others.

A few weeks ago, Rob Jenkins (University of Glasgow) and I asked New Scientist readers to send in a portrait photograph and rate themselves on various personality dimensions. We had over 1000 images, and we would now like to see if you can identify certain personality traits from composite photographs. Click here to take part in the study. The results will be announced in a few weeks.
Once you are done, you might like to discover how the same type of work has helped discover what the offspring of a human and a baboon would look like. Click here (or look at the picture of Milgram in the post above).
Well, yesterday’s mini-experiment was, in many ways, a huge success. So, what did we learn?

Interesting piece in The Daily Mail this morning on why people laugh at bad jokes, and my LaughLab list of the world’s worst jokes. The ‘one line at a time’ stories are looking great. I will delete any REALLY strange entries, and it is neck and neck at the moment in terms of number of comments. Encourage your friends to contribute and we could get them finished by the end of the day. Feel free to write your comments about the stories here, rather than in the stories themselves.
