Most often any anachronism which one may encounter today has been made palpably obvious; its likely appearance is utilized in a movie; it may be done to obtain a laugh, or to present a mystery which is to revealed or unfolded through the vehicle of the film... ...  Read More

Google Scholar's Citation Index H-index score was mentioned with reverence at a recent meeting in a British University. The speaker was explaining how universities ranked the relevant importance of academics and the impact of their work.

Charles Darwin may not have consumed Dennis Lendrem's hamster (see his excellent blog post here on that precise topic). Without published evidence for such rodential gluttony and smoking gun evidence for Darwin's ownership of a time machine we cannot know about such weirdness. Back in the land of the plausible, however, Charles Darwin did, it seems, quite possibly, eat a brown owl in the...  Read More

The recent news story about imprisoned British offenders smoking marijuana whilst portraying themsleves on social media as living the "life of Riley" is another case of confirmatory evidence for the Rifkin Imperative , which is that successful offenders are often compelled to let others know they committed the otherwise 'perfect crime'.

Adam Curtis's hyper normalisation polemical explanation of how the West came to be currently replicating the same mass state of denial practice that happened in Russia before the end of the Cold War has its analogue in the ideal of hard-evidence led policy making.

In answer to my colleague Roger Hopkins Burke's request today about the earliest known use of the term "social housing". We can now know that the first known published use of the term "social housing" dates back at least as far as 1913.

Interestingly, those who discover paradigm changing and independently verifiable new data are often portrayed by desperately biased scholars, with vested career and in-group establishment interests in the old but newly myth-punctured paradigm, as cranks. But, with painful irony, the real cranks are those who let their bias interfere with their critical reasoning. Dr Arlin Stoltzfus, referring to...  Read More

As soon as a rare and fortuitous opportunity come along, which needs to be capitalised upon to benefit from, we might make the mistake of believing it is nothing unusual and that if we fail to seize it another will soon follow.
