Garfield minus Garfield

Did you ever imagine reading your favourite comic without the main character of the comic? Well, Dan Walsh did, and he unfolded his creative idea (apparently with the blessing of Jim Davis) by making the website:

I love it! Thanks Dan, I will keep an eye on your blog to see what else fun you are up to.

The usual suspects 2

You know them. You have met them before. And coincidently, they are always around where something is going on. They stay to one side, look pleasant and rather innocent, but you KNOW, you KNOW who to blame in the end. The CSI dept, once again lines up the usual suspects.

The usual suspects were seen recently at

Laughing at lunch

The other day we had it over Futurama quotes and anecdotes. Today we continued to giggle over Black Adder and the Funniest Joke in The World (by Monty Python). I spiced up the conversation with some quotes from Danish radio comedy shows...

Have a laugh yourself, take for instance the Worlds funniest jokes from wikipedia.

Top 10 reasons to become a Statistician

I found these 'Top 10 reasons to become a Statistician' in the R-help mailing list archive:

1. Deviation is considered normal
2. We feel complete and sufficient
3. We are 'mean' lovers
4. Statisticians do it discretely and continuously
5. We are right 95% of the time
6. We can legally comment on someone's posterior distribution
7. We may not be normal, but we are transformable
8. We never have to say we are certain
9. We are honestly significantly different
10. No one wants our jobs

Salsa anticorrelation

Yesterday Radek introduced me to a new concept: anticorrelated abilities. Think of the ability to be really good in languages or really good in math. Radeks hypothesis is that the co-occurence of these two abilities is smaller than expected by chance if the abilities were independent. To illustrate his point he told me that he has observed multiple examples of anticorrelation between being a good salsa dancer and the ability to ride a bike well...
This is of course just a hypothesis, and I do not have any examples myself to strengthen or disprove it, but I must say that I am delighted to be introduced to such a interestingly new point of view on salsa.

Zitzakken at work

Two weeks ago I was at a party arranged by NXP where they had the brilliant idea of using sandbag chairs everywhere. Good quality I thought, so we ordered some of the same type to our department. And then what happens?

I dare to say that if a beanbag chair cannot resist the full weight of a jumping professor, the bean bag is certainly not of academic quality...

Bright idea

Philip got struck by a bright idea during lunchtime today: He will start a lightning company. Customers can approach the company with orders of lightning to strike at specific locations at specific times. The cost of the service will depend on the charge and precision of the strike. Expected customers are fun fairs (in competition with firework events) and private people who wishes to surprise or scare a friend with teeny weeny lightening charges that make your hair stand out in a funny-looking way.

Of course, the company needs a flashy name, maybe something like Thor Inc...

Words are wise..

My friend Allan has made a cool application to generate random quotes mixed from quotes by Einstein, Descartes, Vonnegut, Twain and Voltaire. Allan postulates that if we wait long enough and if we are lucky, one of these randomized quotes might someday explain the meaning of life...

Ban Bamse & Kylling

The recent events in Poland, where Ewa Sowinska has pointed out the danger of homosexual tendencies expressed by the purple Teletubby Tinky Winky, gives inspiration to further investigation. We should seriously scrutinize all the innocent-looking children series for such more or less apparent "Bad Influence". For example I suggest we start with the Danish tv-series "Bamses Billedbog", where the two male characters Bamse and Kylling often hug, hold hands, or even dress up as husband and wife (Sven Herlig and Dorthe Elisabeth, see picture). This is of course an apparent example of how simple games is a direct suggestion for your children to become homosexuals.

Bunny Kill You

There has always been a nice contrast in letting something cute and cuddly turn dangerous and even deadly. You can find lots of animations, pictures and movies featuring soft small creatures e.g. deadly bunnies. My favourite incarnation of this stereotype is still Big Bunny.
However, please notice that there is a limit to this dramatization effect, for instance, letting sheep turn deadly and were-like did not do it for me...

Man vs. Woman

I can't help wondering what it is that make Men and Women think in different ways. It often leads to misunderstanding and frustration, and a lot of generalisation such as "Men/Women are always like that" usually expressed by women/men respectively.
The funny thing is, I know more than half a dozen women that I do not understand, and I know for certain two men which I do not grasp. This small statistic shows that it is not always the case that you can understand the ways of the people of your own gender.

When in doubt, I go to the Uncyclopedia to clarify things.

Why Danes are smug - a scientific study

The World Map of Happiness published from the University of Leicester, showed that the Danish population is unrivalled the most satisfied in Europe. Why is this? Because blondes have more fun? Because of the infamous "Danish Cuisine"? Or just because Danes love football?

Have fun reading the full article in the British Medical Journal: Why Danes are smug: comparative study of life satisfaction in the European Union
