A work of art it's OK to be puzzled by
http://www.timesonline.co.uk/arti...from Mike, Wed 22nd Dec, 11:57am
Turner Prize winning sculptor Keith Tyson has come up with a work of art/puzzle consisting of 13 cubes, each of which has a message encoded on the faces; The Times is publishing all the relevant images so you don't have to visit Regent's Park to see it. If you can successfully decode the message before anyone else, you can win the sculpture itself. Personally, I've got nowhere with any of it, but I'd be interested to see what people can come up with.
The rest of the cubes are being linked from here. (9 comments...)

Black Prince website?
haven't a clue!from Sarah, Fri 3rd Dec, 11:37am
Alex and I have been adding 'our clubs' to the website www.coxie.com (it's a coxes thing) and I wanted to add BP as one of my 12 clubs (or something like that, am beginning to lose count now)

I definitely remember there being a BPBC website of some sort, although it was lame into the extreme and consisted of a black screen with the cat and buns on it... anyone any ideas where it's gone? and are there plans to revive it... c'mon the Boars Head *spit* can manage it...

What Am I Like?
http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/huma...from Idealist, Fri 10th Sep, 11:44am
A similar thing was previously discussed here, but as it was on TV last night, I thought it might be fun to revisit.

Answer a few questions and find out which of 16 personality types you fit into, based on whether you are Introvert/Extrovert, Ideas/Facts, Heart/Head, Planner/Spontaneous. Is there a typical rower type?

For the record, I am an Idealist (Introvert, Ideas, Heart, Spontaneous). (35 comments...)

Athens 2004 Rowing Media Guide
http://dps.twiihosting.net/fisa/d...from Mike, Fri 27th Aug, 8:25am
A must for rowing Stattos everywhere. The media guide for the Olympic Rowing Regatta contains all the info you could wish for on past medal winners and future prospects, the schedule, the venue and the finer points of the rules. It also includes a guide on how to row and a glossary of rowing terms. Nice to see that even for an Olympic Regatta they feel the need for a definition for "crab"... (14 comments...)

The BBC is going to stop televising the boat race after this year. Clearly this is going to mean a lot less sponsorship money, and probably a resulting drop in standard. Is this going to be good / bad for Cambridge rowing? Discuss :) (3 comments...)

Snapple Factoids
http://snapple.com/index.asp?Page...from gf206, Thu 6th Nov, 4:52pm
A few disclaimers.....

* rawd2 sent me this link - I didn't find it myself.
* Of the 38 wrong answers I gave, 36 were after a 5-pint liquid lunch, so I can kid myself than I'm not such a dolt after all.
* Many of the answers rely on making very American-centric assumptions; a few rely on pedantically precise interpretation of the wording; quite a lot rely on pretty loose interpretation of the wording.
* Every answer could be looked up and there's no time-out (that I found - I did leave it over lunch, after all), so you could just look stuff up and get 100% but that would be pretty sad.
* Nonetheless, it's good fun. (16 comments...)
