It's true they're a small group, but they are REALLY dedicated.

Why do Brits find Gingers so horrifying?
Only 4 percent of women think they are beautiful?


At least, 96% of British women find gingers horrifying.

Fermi Paradox. What am I missing?
When did mold become evil?


We can't communicate with the intelligent mold that is inhabiting most other solar systems. On the other hand, it's evil, so that might be a good thing.

Was there ever a time in your memory when people were optimistic about the future/economy?

The mind is pictures?



I picture people snuggling up with cuddly, big GNP numbers.

Heh! I looked through that second title looking for a typo and totally forgot that one, and I've made dozens of jokes about it myself. Way to go!

Bumping headlines on the Wikipedia home page.

There is a Did You Know item next to a picture with a caption pertaining to a different item on the list.

The item is

Did You Know ... .. that the jellyfish Sanderia malayensis has a life cycle that includes a number of different types of asexual reproduction?

And the picture caption is
The Duke of Windsor inspecting German troops in 1937

But the lines are arranged so the first item reads
Did You Know ... .. that the jellyfish Sanderia malayensis has a life cycle that includes a number of German troops in 1937

is it illegal to talk to the driver while the bus is in motion?
Physics problem - mass of a container plus its contents


Taken together, the mass of a bus and all its passengers is equal to the outrage that will ensue if it goes off a bridge, because you were yakking with the driver about cellphone apps.

Like the canary in the coal mine, if a budgie freezes into a statue in your living room, it's time to turn up the thermostat.
