Back again!

I am back from vacation, with several more ideas for The Corrigendopedia!

First I was writing one, couldn't figure out where to go with it, then I started another but it was going nowhere, so I have started yet another one, and it has this spiffy 'drawring' (greatly enlarged):

sep 369 Plummeting Water Drop

Can you guess what this thing is?

Doubtless you've seen millions, but what are they? Well, I know it's a drawring, but it closely resembles a photo. The vertical lines are meant to be reflections. Also, these things move really fast and we don't get a clear look at them.

How is this thing moving? If you can guess that, you can figure out what it is!

Anyway, the article I started (but did not finish) is called Look Again! Where are your preconceptions from? Someday I'll find a decent middle and ending!

Possibly the lowest form of information.

This is my last pre-vacation post -- I'll be in Georgia until the 13th! -- but when I get back, I'll have tons of cool material!

What is today's Corrigendopedia article about? Well, back in 2005, I was emailed some 'Fun Facts' and found a lot of it false. So, I blogged about it. Finally, I've compiled those posts into one big article and added this ostrich:

a-s 021 Male Ostrich rolling egg

The article is called; Internet Trivia: How much of it is even true?

While I haven't actually gotten around to doing a statistical analysis, I can already tell you that the percentage does appear to be over ten percent.
` I also go a little bit into researching and critical thinking throughout the article. It ain't much for that kind of thing, but for now it'll do.

I may stop in here for a minute while I'm on vacation. If not, my next post will be a post-vacation post!

Finally done with Morristown UFO Hoax article...

...It just took me a good forty hours to work out all the kinks. Really. I now see why I always used to just 'dump' most of my really long blog articles. I still have 'em, though, and a lot of them will be making a comeback on The Corrigendopedia.

For now, here's article #2 Rudy and Russo's Big Gullibility Experiment. And my customary drawring....

aug 126 Launching the Morristown Flares

It took a really long time to fill all that black space in. Maybe next time I won't use a ball-point pen!

As for article #3, since I've busy doing storyboards for a movie (which I'd be more enthusiastic about if I were being paid), I may not finish the drawrings for it and all before going to Georgia for the first time ever, to visit my mom.
` That will be during September 6-13. But, rest assured, I'll still be working on other Corrigendopedia material via paper. Good old paper!
