    The annual Dance Your PhD contest challenges grad students to dance their dissertations, interpreting their science with awesome, kinetic, expressive body-language. The 12 finalists have been announced, and are up for your voting. From "Sperm competition between brothers and female choice" the "Multi-Axial Fatigue for Predicting Life of Mechanical Components" (above) and all the others, they are spectacular.

    Ironically, the sun worship makes much more sense than any other religion or cult. 

    One thing: we know for sure the sun exists.

    Second: it significantly improves the quality of our lifes.

    I had an auto-repair man once, who, on these intelligence tests, could not possibly have scored more than 80, by my estimate. I always took it for granted that I was far more intelligent than he was. Yet, when anything went wrong with my car I hastened to him with it, watched him anxiously as he explored its vitals, and listened to his pronouncements as though they were divine oracles - and he always fixed my car.
    Well, then, suppose my auto-repair man devised questions for an intelligence test. Or suppose a carpenter did, or a farmer, or, indeed, almost anyone but an academician. By every one of those tests, I’d prove myself a moron, and I’d be a moron, too. In a world where I could not use my academic training and my verbal talents but had to do something intricate or hard, working with my hands, I would do poorly. My intelligence, then, is not absolute but is a function of the society I live in and of the fact that a small subsection of that society has managed to foist itself on the rest as an arbiter of such matters.
    Consider my auto-repair man, again. He had a habit of telling me jokes whenever he saw me. One time he raised his head from under the automobile hood to say: “Doc, a deaf-and-mute guy went into a hardware store to ask for some nails. He put two fingers together on the counter and made hammering motions with the other hand. The clerk brought him a hammer. He shook his head and pointed to the two fingers he was hammering. The clerk brought him nails. He picked out the sizes he wanted, and left. Well, doc, the next guy who came in was a blind man. He wanted scissors. How do you suppose he asked for them?”
    Indulgently, I lifted my right hand and made scissoring motions with my first two fingers. Whereupon my auto-repair man laughed raucously and said, “Why, you dumb jerk, He used his voice and asked for them.” Then he said smugly, “I’ve been trying that on all my customers today.” “Did you catch many?” I asked. “Quite a few,” he said, “but I knew for sure I’d catch you.” “Why is that?” I asked. “Because you’re so goddamned educated, doc, I knew you couldn’t be very smart.

    Vergeltungsschlag : Google will Obamas Lieblings-Pornoseiten verraten - Nachrichten Satire - DIE WELT

    Jetzt droht der Kampf der Datensammler: Der Internetkonzern Google verspricht fürchterliche Rache dafür, dass er vom amerikanischen Geheimdienst NSA angezapft wurde.

    Da haben US-Präsident Barack Obama und der amerikanische Geheimdienst NSA nun den Datensalat: Nach den Worten von Chefjustiziar David Drummond ist der Internetkonzern Google "aufgebracht darüber, wie weit die Regierung scheinbar gegangen ist, um Daten aus unseren privaten Glasfaser-Netzwerken abzugreifen."

    Wie es aussieht, will Google nun ein bislang nie dagewesenes Zeichen für die Privatsphäre im Netz setzen. Man müsse der US-Regierung und ihrem Geheimdienst einmal klipp und klar deutlich machen, wie unantastbar persönliche Daten im Netz seien, heißt es aus dem Konzernsitz im kalifornischen Mountain View. "Ausspähen unter Freunden, das geht gar nicht", erklärte der aufgebrachte Google-Chef Eric Schmidt jetzt in einem von der NSA abgehörten Anruf.

    Google stellt als Vergeltungsaktion einen umfangreichen Maßnahmenkatalog in Aussicht. In den nächsten Tagen wolle man unter anderem Barack Obamas Lieblings-Pornoseiten, sämtliche Passwörter von NSA-Chef Keith Alexander sowie die sexuellen Vorlieben ausgewählter Geheimdienstmitarbeiter veröffentlichen.

    "Nur so verstehen der Präsident und seine Schergen, dass die Regierung im Privatleben von Internetnutzern nichts zu suchen hat", gibt man sich bei Google kämpferisch, "so etwas sollte man lieber Profis wie uns überlassen."
