Any good at judging how old people are?

Test yourself in our new experiment, in collaboration with the people behind TestMyBrain.org). In the first part, you'll see a pair of eyes and will try to guess the person's expression. In the second part, you'll see a face and will try to guess their age. You'll get a score at the end that you can compare with friends:

It'll take about 15 minutes.

If you know anyone who works as a school teacher, bouncer / security at a club, liquor store cashier, waiter, staff at a nursing home, one of those carnival age-guessers, or anyone else whose job involves thinking about and determining other people's age, pass this along to them. It would be a great help, in the name of science and all that is good in the world.

Justin Junge and I have created the Visual Quantitative Literacy Test, which measures people's ability to extract information from graphs, maps, charts, and other visual displays. We piloted it on some friends and family, used their feedback to improve the test, and now would love to get a larger sample size. The test is about 15 to 25 minutes long and is anonymous.

Take a swing at it? Pass it around?

 A better tic-tac-toe.
Once at a picnic, I saw mathematicians crowding around the last game I would have expected: Tic-tac-toe.

I just launched SixTweetUnder (six.tweetunder.com), a list of Twitter users, once popular, who for whatever reason no longer tweet. Add?

One of the nicest things about thoughts is that, with some effort, they can be transformed into what they need to be.

Seven things they ought to teach in school, curated by yours truly. 
They may have taught you reading, writing, and arithmetic, but is that really everything you needed to know? Let's fill in the gaps.

I suppose it's time to start practicing the line "No, I'm not that kind of doctor."

"For a show like Radiolab, fascinated by the boundary between what's known and what could be, funded by the National Science Foundation, and listened to by millions, what's most important is not the ideas but the process by which those ideas are tested and confirmed. That's science, and it's where Radiolab misstepped."
