1st - Richard Grantham with:
Sleep Deprivation

The Task
Our experiment was tested before Sleep Deprivation and after. Our test involved anagrams. There were 10 anagrams each 4 letters long that the subjects had to solve. The subjects were given one anagram and one plain sheet of paper at a time.
Once the anagram and paper were given to the subject, they had a maximum of 30 seconds to complete each anagram.
If the anagram was completed within the 30 second time limit, the time was recorded in a table. If the anagram was not completed in the 30 second time limit, not solved was written in the table. This was treated as 30 seconds. The average time taken for each subject before and after sleep deprivation was recorded.

The Result
The average time taken to solve the anagrams was 7.26 seconds before sleep deprivation and 6.5 seconds after. This difference is not significant.

Research conducted by Leanne Day, Julia Scott and Laura Hughes.



The Stated Aim
An experiment was devised to investigate a potential correlation between the compulsive creation of new anagrams and utter chronic sleep deprivation.
A subject gave himself three new 300-360 letter rude spamagrams to start and complete each night for fifteen weeks. Every second night he also had an estimated three to five hours of fantastic heated sex. We came and recorded the precise sleeping patterns in fine detail.
A control was given a nice sedate massage and a sweet romance novel, and made to lie down and get some sleep.

The Stated Result
The average (mean) time of the subject nodding off was 10:02 pm before these anagrams, 4:37 am after.
It is conceivable that this 6:35 adjournment could perhaps in part be attributable to anagrams. The subject, alas, doesn't see it like that.

Research conducted by Richard James Grantham and several others who know who they are.


2nd - Dan Fortier with:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Here the patriots had wanted to be quite clear as to why they can no longer remain British peers, but instead must end that life by revolt: We share faith that elected rule helped ensure all attain higher fate.

The following concerns a question in a physics degree exam at the University of Copenhagen:

"Describe how to determine the height of a skyscraper with a barometer."

One student replied:

"Have a nice huge piece of string tied onto the end of the barometer, and lower it down from the skyscraper roof out to the ground. The true length of the bit of string plus barometer too now equals the exact true height of given skyscraper. (Nice and simple to attain, I'd admit.)"

This highly original answer so incensed the examiner that the student was failed immediately. The student appealed on the grounds that his answer was indisputably correct, and the university appointed an independent arbiter to decide the case. The arbiter judged that the answer was indeed correct, but did not display any noticeable knowledge of physics. To resolve the problem it was decided to call the student in and allow him six minutes in which to provide a verbal answer which showed at least a minimal familiarity with the basic principles of physics. For five minutes the student sat in silence, forehead creased in thought. The arbiter reminded him that time was running out, to which the student replied that he had several extremely relevant answers, but couldn't make up his mind which to use. On being advised to hurry up the student replied as follows:

"Now I could drop it off the top of the skyscraper, measuring the precise time (t) 'til it takes to land. Height can then be ascertained using the nice tenet: H = half g x t squared. Sweet formula - even if a bit rough on my poor, dinted, now forever rooted barometer, though. Not too great."
"Or even measure off the length of barometer and of the short shadow when put erect, and the length of skyscraper shadow. Cite simple proportional arithmetic - height can quite easily be gotten out. Trite and/or kind of inexact, true, but good for me (I tend to get vertiginous)."
"You tie a short string to the barometer and swing it like a pendulum - both at the ground level and on top of the skyscraper. The exact height can be deduced from the difference in the gravitational restoring force T = two pi times the square root of g to the power of minus one."
"More trite: if our skyscraper has a fire escape, first wander up to the top while measuring the building in precise barometer lengths. Then add them together to get a height. Not exactly too quick or fluent, however good and effective. (But to do that on and on... no, it's not for me!)"
"Now to be quite perfectly orthodox, of course, one might use a barometer to determine the air pressure up at the top of that skyscraper and then down at ground level, converting that difference in millibars into feet to get a height. And oh God how fucking tiresome that is."
"Exercising true independence of mind, though, might be to thump on the stout door of the poor fat caretakers to ask the direct, level question: 'Want to own a decent barometer? For I can give away this one for starters - after you tell me the proper height of this dang building!'"

The student was Niels Bohr, the only Dane to win the Nobel Prize for Physics.
