  1. Pigeons can classify a Picasso from a Monet at an expert level and peck their answer within 300ms [...] They were tested on assembly lines to pick out defective parts. They did better than humans but were not used due to decreased moral of other humans on the line.

  2. Last year I messed with my mate's computer and changed the Windows startup sound. I made it an hour long file, 20minutes of silence so he wouldn't suspect anything and 40minutes of groaning (not continuous, it'd be a soft groan for 2 seconds, then silence then a few minutes later there'd be a louder groan and vice versa). It was extremely hilarious when I heard him shouting "what the fuck".

  3. As a Quebecois, I can attest to the fact that we often seem castrated on sexual subjects, and europeans are seen as more casual. Quebecois girls are often seen as "easy prey" to europeans, as they are not used to be around men who are being openly seductive.
