    Digital TV Favouring during Transition from Analogue TV - Why SBS botched the Walkleys This pisses me off. the digital/analogue "war" is dumb. The way the commercial networks are handling it is fine.. and besides we *want* people to want digital so it makes sense for the digital broadcast to be favoured. Grr. People are dumb.

    SBS is good because of the foreign movies. We like subtitles!!

    The National IQ Test. I wonder how many people took it.. This site will let you do it for $5.50! Whoopee! Not interested. Not that I believe IQ tests are even remotely accurate or anything but that one was apparently really shite.. lots of general knowledge questions and not much in the way of IQ questions. Not that it would have helped really, since you can learn to do IQ questions better (to a degree) and that's why their so wildly innacurate. Anyone doing an IQ test for a second time should do better than their first because they learned from the first time. Well, unless they have had some brain damage in the meantime anyway. :)

    Ooh.. and will you check out the results! That's both wildly innacurate and statistically unsound. Heh.. Lets take a subset of people who watch TV on a Tuesday night. Then lets get the subset of people who want to do an iq test. Then the subset of people that can be bothered submitting their results (possibly online which is an even weirder subset). Then lets run a dodgy IQ test and see what results we get and what that says about our strange subset of Australians. Hehe. It says "Statistics are fun!"

    But wait.. there's more! Mensa is an elite club you an join if your IQ is higher than 98% of the Australian population. Which brings me to another thought.. What if the Nation gets smarter? Do you get kicked out because now you're only higher than 97% of people? Heh. My mind works in weird ways.. sorry :)

    Flash Slideshow from the Hubble Telescope
    This is a pretty neat slideshow of views from the Hubble telescope. Most of it's pretty basic knowledge.. but if you're like me and are a bit forgetful of your basic Astronomy knowledge then it's cool. Oh, and even if you aren't forgetful.. it's pretty!

    Ice Skating and Beach Bumming
    Last night I went ice skating at the Noarlunga ice staking rink. It was great! Plus, I've now found a few more people with rollerblades to go skating with. Yay! Must've worn me out though, cause I slept for 10.5 hours last night. :)
    Beach bumming today! Yay! And if it's warm enough I'm going to learn how to surf! Woohoo. Well most likely I'll learn how to suck at surfing.. but whatever. :)

    Friday Night Pressure
    Is there some unwritten rule that you *must* go out on a Friday night? I just want to splat in front of the TV or read but I feel obliged to make an effort to go somewhere. This society is so consumer driven. Spend Spend Spend. Nup. Staying home. Not going to pay for anything. So there!
