- Sex advice for Christians. Married Christians, of course.
- Geckos - made of COOL!
- Worth reading just for the graph of who slept with who amongst a group of students. Sleep with one of them, there's a 50% chance you've "slept" with all of them...
The most interesting thing being what people's views tell you about the way they view the world.
The majority of them, in this case, believing that they are in the middle - that they are 'normal'.
Which rings true with my experience talking about this with people - where nearly everyone from my just-about-employed-in-a-crap-job ex-student friends to my earning-in-the-top-5%-in-the-finance-sec
I mean, I'm on 50% more than the UK median income (which is £450 a week), and _I_ feel normal.
The other interesting bit is that people feel that those above them must have earned it, while those beneath them are just lazy. Which also rings true - after all, if _I_ can get this far, then anyone who put in a bit of effort could do it? The answer, obviously, being no, but that doesn't match with human intuition.
Which means that if you want to get people motivated to help the poor then you need to make it very clear where people actually fall on the spectrum of income.
Which reminds me - anyone got a graph showing how much (working age) people in the UK earn? Or some figures I could turn into a graph?

Also - if you earn more than £49k then tick the £49k box.
When it comes to money I think of myself as
When compared to the people I spend most of my time with I am
My income is equal to or less than (£weekly/£yearly/$yearly)
Those figures are the income percentiles for the fully employed UK workers, which you can get from here. If you're in the second group (£312 a week) then at least 10% of the population earn less than you, if you're in the third group then at least 20% of the population earns less than you. If you're in the first group then your life sucks.
