  1. Doctorate degree at the age of 91. Wow!

  2. Kenneth Chang: Man Who Set Stage for a Nobel Now Lives a Life Outside Science [Thanks to Pipa for the link].

  3. Dan Ariely: Who enjoys humor more? conservatives or liberals?. Here's one of the jokes used in this academic study:

    Husband: When I get mad at you, you never fight back. How do you control your anger?

    Wife: I clean the toilet bowl.

    Husband: How does that help?

    Wife: I use your toothbrush.

  4. Michael North: Oxbridge interviews: expect the unexpected. Don't be fazed by weird questions - they're there for a reason. [Her's an example: "Would you rather be a novel or a poem?"]

  5. Blue: Phone-banking for Obama: The undecided voter.
