Experimental psychology's long since proven that memory is tied to saliency, a concept you'd remember, had it not been crammed in a textbook next to a lot of other psychological crap that sounded the same. From a Boulder experimenteur who's betting you rarely see hot women: Facts & Figures.
Just created by a Boulder writer whose psychological mastery stems from him once reading Moonwalking with Einstein and taking robust margin notes, F&F aims to burn interesting (if admittedly random), site-cited facts into your mind by juxtaposing them with images of the world's most beautiful women (plus amusing "bonus facts"), a concept which promises to be fun, if slightly trivia-l. To the women!:
Fact: "The guy who invented headphones was a Mormon with multiple wives."
Bonus Fact: "With multiple wives, I'm surprised he didn't also invent noise-canceling headphones."
Fact: "According to the EPA, ocean levels have risen 6 to 8 inches in the last 100 years."
Bonus Fact: "Six inches of something else has risen since I looked at this photo. Ok, it's more like 2.5. :("
Fact: "There's new evidence that the Vikings were more cultured settlers who offered a 'good historical model' of immigrant assimilation."
Bonus Fact: "Brett Favre is actually older than the vikings this article references, and rapey-r."
As the tumblr's still brand new, you're more than encouraged to submit your own interesting facts paired with hot pics, lest the whole site become an experiment in stale-iency.
