Top Selection of the Day
LabLit is dedicated to real laboratory culture and to the portrayal and perceptions of that culture – science, scientists and labs – in fiction, the media and across popular culture. The site is intended for non-scientists as well as scientists, and the goal is to inform, entertain and surprise. In this forum, you will find essays about lab culture and lab-based fiction; profiles and interviews of scientists, novelists, playwrights, artists and other notables; humor; opinion; reviews; and artwork (with short fiction and poetry coming in the future). We also highlight outtakes from real laboratory life, including photos, quotes, links and other observations Launch
Add-on: These are some interesting articles that you can find inside LabLit:
> Killing Me Softly: Are iPods changing lab culture? (Launch)
> Sweet Somethings: Can a PhD attract the opposite sex? (Launch)

Anomalies of Nature
Throughout history there have always been individuals who possessed the amazing ability to "see" things either at a distant place or at a distant time, both past and future. But it wasn't until around 20 years ago that serious research was started by scientific groups. They found that the human mind had the amazing ability to "see" events at a distance even though under normal circumstances the "viewer" had no knowledge of these events. They further found that under certain mind-states a person could "see" reasonably accurately into the future or into the past. Not only that but distance didn't matter. Successful Remote Viewing has been achieved over a distance of 6000 miles!

Deja Vu
A physiological explanation of the deja vu phenomenon may exist. The optical and neural paths from the two eyes may be slightly different. Or, alternately, a "newer" and "older" brain processing method might be responsible. Of the five human senses, it appears that the deja vu phenomenon only occurs to the sense of sight. Whether the other senses can be affected is unclear. Since deja vu is such an undocumentable experience, even this is not a certain statement. Going under the assumptions that it is exclusively a visual phenomenon, that it only seems to occur to certain people, and that there must be a physiological cause for the phenomenon, we consider some possible explanations

Make yourself cleverer
A lot of people feel they are under-performing in their life, that they are letting themselves down, in terms of their ability to handle events or thinking that people at work are cleverer than them. This programme shows everyone can get smarter, and feel better, if they do these things

Shoe Lacing Methods
Whilst mathematics tells us that there are more than 2 Trillion Methods of feeding a lace through the 6 pairs of eyelets on an average shoe, this section presents a (somewhat more realistic) typical cross-section of traditional and alternative lacing methods that I've either found or created or that have been sent to me by web site visitors

Mental typewriters [Weird News]
A computer controlled by the power of thought alone has been demonstrated at a major trade fair in Germany. The device could provide a way for paralysed patients to operate computers, or for amputees to operate electronically controlled artificial limbs. But it also has non-medical applications, such as in the computer games and entertainment industries

Sleep Positions [Weird News]
Scientists believe the position in which a person goes to sleep provides an important clue about the kind of person they are. Professor Chris Idzikowski, director of the Sleep Assessment and Advisory Service, has analysed six common sleeping positions - and found that each is linked to a particular personality type
