Booksthatmakeyoudumb


I thought this was interesting.

A Cal Tech student decided to do an experiment where he gathered data from facebook, taking people's favorite books and comparing them to the college they attended and that college's SAT average of its students. Then he made a nifty graph illustrating the correlation between the books people read and how "smart" they are.

Amusing to me: People who listed "The Holy Bible" as one of their favorite books are "dumber" than people who listed "The Bible".

Best movie of 2007 available on DVD this Tuesday!



That would be the outstanding gamer documentary King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters (my original review here).

I wish the real Olympics were this awesome

Who needs visual effects when you can just do the same thing with people dressed in black?

Important Culinary News: Dunkin' Donuts Coffee Now Available in L.A. Stores


Anyone who has ever set foot east of the Mississippi (and even a few points west) knows that Dunkin' Donuts' coffee is only, like, the best coffee ever. Every so often, I will even order their coffee grounds or beans (via their website).

But NO MORE! As of last month, Dunks has been offering their coffee at retail stores. I have personally had sightings of DD coffee at both Target and Ralph's in the Los Angeles area. Look for it next time you're shopping. You won't be disappointed. If you don't believe me, you can even request a free sample!
