The crucial – and amusing – importance of words

Have you heard of Call My Bluff? It’s a ‘retired’ radio/TV show from Britain, in which contestants hear three definitions of an obscure word and guess which is true. The definitions given range from straightforward to outlandish – with no indication of how silly the word actually is!

For the latest Inside Knowledge post, the crew (Anna, Lizzie and Ben mainly!) concocted a scientific version of the show. Check it out here!

PS:

A little taste of Oxford, from my slightly doomed expedition to meet a neuroscientist last week... (doomed by the delayed train ride home, the actual interview and wander around the city was great!)

    I liked the “call my bluff” trivia game :) (the merry music was a nice finishing touch!)
