Re breastsize / sexism correlation - it would be interesting to see the sexism test results if they tested that first. The experiment (viewing a semi naked womanand being asked to rate her breasts) seems designed to prime people to respond to the sexism test in a sexist way.

The new BMI calculator makes me more obese than the old one. That kind of bites.

As someone who is perpetually scared that the loss of benefits will leave me in a position where I have no choice but to have my cat put down (and for whom the death, from an age-related illness, of another cat last year came, in part, as something of a relief, for precisely this reason), I cannot adequately express the disgust I feel towards Nadine Dorries right now. Suffice to say I hope she ends up going to prison for a very long time indeed.

Liking the neurotypical rant for obvious reasons- didn't even realise there was a school of thought that said Aspergers "didn't count". Should've expected it really, given, well, people...
