    Fi, I am gutted that I didn't spot you. Were you tempted by the cheese - looked good!

    In Scotland, the views of 100,000 people have been ignored.

    They were excluded on the grounds that they were unable to complete a couple of slips of paper.

    Might this not be a good thing?

    You couldn't go out and make a crop circle tonight - it's May - there are no crops big enough to make circles in

    My brother lives near Avebury and did many designs in the area including many famous ones see front cover of led zeppalin boxed set!, which are considered authentic by so called experts like Lucy pringle.. But interesting to hear about chris seeing three lights in the sky zooming away from each other because the same thing happened to my brother when he did a design at westbury which really freaked him out.

    Saturday Live Team,

    Great morning, (comment rather than a greeting)

    Hot buttered toast, cup of green tea, Saturday Live and this week's New Scientist. Perfect morning.

    There's a couple of features in the New Scientist that I thought Saturday live could do a dry take on;

    'How to make better choices' - A ten point article with a mine of stuff on how, despite thinking of ourselves as rational beings, most of our choices are based on emotional factors. I was reading one snippet and listening to Ray Kluun. The limbic system plays a key part in decision making and researchers found that when people make decisions coloured with anger - we become more selfish, impetuous and risk prone....hmm.

    Cue Saturday's Live listeners disgust at Ray's behaviour, the article goes on 'Disgust makes us more censorious in our moral judgements.

    People who had read a word that cued disgust went so far as to express moral censure of blameless Dan, a student councillor who was merely organising discussion meetings.'
    I might try that out later.

    Loads of other stuff - from the paradox of choice - watch out maximisers, to anchoring - when we have to make decisions based on very limited information, we latch onto irrelevant information to inform our decisions - which explains George Bush - "I glance at the headlines just to kind of get a flavor for what's moving. I rarely read the stories, and get briefed by people who are probably read the news themselves."

    Speaking of bad choices, I should have done the shopping by now. Looking forward to next week's programme.

    Carla
