Entertainment stuff from the week 27/5 - 2/6/13

Hi, skinnymalinks

My computer's been working rather... well, 'working' would be the wrong word, for this week!

So, unfortunately, this week's post is shorter than usual.

To see the rest, sign here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here, and here....

Thunderf00t has announced the winners of the first round of his video contest, as chosen by Eugenie Scott, Harry Kroto, and Beth Adler.

The guidelines for the first round of the competition were:

- To speak on just how juicily awesome science is!

- Further, the topic and terminology must be understandable to nonspecialists and nonscientists.

- A topic that catches the imagination, and a treatment that makes the viewer want to find out more.

'Some great entries and winners to the video contest!'

Expression Of ...and here.... The Week: "Get yer rat out" -- an exclamation by young men, passing in their fast cars, to beautiful girls at the side of the road (in this context, 'rat' is a euphemism for vagina)

Last week's quote:
"I was bullied at school, called all kinds of different names. But one day i turned on my bullies and said, "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me". And it worked! From then on, it was sticks and stones all the way." - Harry Hill
