What I learned this week

1. Ricky Perry is slightly bow-legged. He says it's from practicing standing like a cowboy when he was younger.
2. Psychopaths have a hard time identifying fear and sadness. When people with antisocial personality disorder see facial expressions, they're a lot more likely to be able to recognize happy ones than sad or scared ones. This is probably why psychos don't feel remorse, since they don't emotionally register that they are harming anyone.
3. James Bond's a weenie. Fine, it's the actors who play James Bond who are the weenies, but still. Stunt doubles do all the really stupid things that make guys go see those movies. Like 800-foot bungee jumps and ski jumping off a cliff or sliding from one plane to another at 15,000 feet in the air. And a lot of the times, they go uncredited in the films.
4. Some of my grad school classes have come in handy. I wrote an article on famous sociologists and some of their contributions to the field, and I actually remembered some of the ideas that I learned in my communication theory class a couple years back. Ah, the good old days.

I also learned that Leonardo (of TMNT) uses katanas, one of the Bee Gees was named Maurice, and that Will likes "Nights in White Satin" at a pub quiz on Thursday. We didn't do too well...

  1. Raphael had sais, Donatello had a staff, and Michelango had nunchucks. Did we not watch that movie enough with you around?
