Sunday Burst of Weird and AWESOME!

Oddities and Awesome abound!

:: What happens if you eat that little packet of stuff that says "Do Not Eat"?

:: In general, 62 percent of people like spicy food. But among those who think flag burning should be illegal, 78 percent like spicy food. How do we know this? Correlated.org, that's how!

:: I did not know that the Taco Bell chihuahua ads actually led to decreased sales at Taco Bell. The things you learn.

:: I'm of mixed mind on this super-patriotic paint job on a Camaro, which a friend e-mailed me last week. On the one hand, yes, that's a really impressive bit of car painting. But on the other hand, I'm really tired of the brand of patriotism that seems to only define national greatness in terms of wars we've fought.

More next week!

I'm giving you a standing ovation in my heart! I've SO wanted to hear someone say this. Especially on Fb on any given national holiday!

Never heard of Correlated.com before but LOVE the concept. I'll be using this in my SOC class when I talk about research. Thanks!
