    @Magnusisasillyname - hey, anything's worth a punt...

    My first thought when I saw that was 'Is that Andy Kadir-Buxton?'. But it wasn't. Anyone who isn't familiar with Mr Kadir Buxton, you're well advised to check out his particular brand of cosmic batshit:

    William and Mathew Burrard-Lucas like to take pictures of cats and post them on the internet.

    They use a special device for that.

    Holding a gun makes you more likely to think other objects are guns.
    As the investigation continues into last month's fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed black teenager killed by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida, psychology researchers can point to one aspect of the tragedy: how easy it is to "see" that someone is holding a gun when he is not.
    In the latest research, scientists found that simply holding a gun, as George Zimmerman was when he confronted Martin in a gated community in Sanford, Florida, has an effect.
    "The mere act of holding a gun makes it more likely that you will perceive an object as a gun," said James Brockmole, associate professor of psychology at the University of Notre Dame and co-author of an upcoming paper on that phenomenon.

    @The Mighty Foamhead

    Studies have also shown that holding a weapon of any sort, knife, gun, whatever (as long as you identify it as a weapon), keys people up and makes them more aggressive.

    Did you mean this?

    Wait never mind you fixed it.

    Cool link. Weird transition between the hate and the zen at the end.

    Is that pythagorean proof that people who use the word swag are idiots?

    @Bob - yeah, but it works if you substitute a second 'him' for a 'her' and vice versa. And for that matter, it works if you substitute 'God' for 'kittens' or 'cheese'. And then , because it's not an equilateral triangle, it'd actually be quicker for them to run across the bottom and meet in the middle, leaving God out of the equation altogether.

    So all round FAIL really.

    @JP Carpenter - And if you run towards someone, and they run towards God, either you'll miss each other entirely or you'll get the weirdest game of baseball ever.
