Clearly our trademark system is working as intended when some schlub can trademark the symbol for Pi. Yep, that is big help to our creative society and not a huge lawyer driven anchor on the free market.
This is the sort of story that is why I love the United Kingdom so much as a villager converts his local hedge into a dragon. Very cool.
This is an interesting study that makes sense when I think about it. The basic premise is that by placing an obstruction in front of the exit crowds will actually move faster through it. Why? Because the obstruction breaks the tendency to pack up and which really slows things down. I will be curious to hear how testing with humans instead of ants goes.
So Mr. Clarkson is in the news again sadly. This time he was accused of using a racist nursery rhyme. In the story there he denied it, but later he issued a follow up apology that says he did use the word. Sad. This may be the one that finally catches up to him. When I first posted about Clarkson on this site he was pretty much unknown in America. That was why his rant struck me as so pompous and overblown, but I have never hated him and do think he is a great entertainer. It will be sad if this is how he ends his career.
