Blown Away by Blogpulse

In his recent post on Blogpulse, Ethan says if you are interested in who is looking at your blog, or a blog you are a fan of, Blogpulse's new tools are certainly worth a close look.

He explains "Sources" lists outgoing links, and "Neighborhood" matches one's blog up with other blogs that have links or terms in common.

Following Ethan's tip, I used Blogpulse and found blogs linking to mine that were not even clocked by Technorati.

Spot The Fake Smile

Today, via BBC - Science & Nature - Human Body and Mind:

See Spot The Fake Smile - an experiment designed to test whether you can spot the difference between a fake smile and a real one. It has 20 questions and should take you 10 minutes. It is based on research by Professor Paul Ekman, a psychologist at the University of California.

I got 15 out of 20 correct. Seems it only took 5 minutes. I may have scored better if I could have viewed some smiles more than once. Nifty program but you only get one glimpse of each smile.
