Quirkology

Richard Wiseman is an English psychology professor well known within the skeptic community for his debunking of fraud and his gifts as a public speaker. He won an award from CSICOP in 2000.

He has a site called “Quirkology” where he posts surveys, and you can also watch the Quirkology videos he posts on Youtube.. Currently on the website he’s running a survey to examine people’s thoughts about romance. It’s a brief survey that just asks for your country, age and sex and then asks you to rate a couple of dozen actions by a man towards a woman on a scale of romance from 1 to 10. There are also online experiments, such as one to find out whether laughter is contagious.

If that’s not your cup of tea, you might like to visit his Laughlab website, about his year long quest to find the world’s funniest joke.
