Update and Signs

It's been a while since I've posted much about what's going on in my life. So what's going on? Well, not a whole lot. I've got a few studies I'll be starting in October, so I've mostly been focused on getting the measures finalized, and getting approval from the ethics committee (a necessary formality - these are pretty tame experiments). But I'm looking forward to starting them. There's nothing quite like fresh data.

Other than that, I'm heading to Kent (Canterbury) in early September for a social psychology conference held by the British Psychological Society. I'm not presenting any research (thankfully!) but I'm looking forward to getting to see what interesting new research other people are working on, and getting to do some networking. I really don't know many social psychologists outside of Exeter, so it should be a great opportunity.

Well I don't know about you, but the previous two paragraphs were a bit too dull and work-oriented. Now, how about some unintentionally unfortunate signs from around the world? They've all got one thing in common...

Umm... I hadn't planned on it, but thanks for the reminder!

Ehh... I guess it's safer to pull over and get out of the car when that happens.

Err... From a park in Germany... and you know what those are like.

I think the third one is just a reference to a human wheelbarrow. You'd have gravity working against you if it was a sexual position, but perhaps I don't know what the Germans are like?

Hmm... you're right. Gravity would make that pretty hard. Maybe it's an extreme kegel exercise?

Eric said...

Yes; in fact, that position is often known as "the wheelbarrow."
