Pebbles, Vol. 45

6. Short research article: Evidence against the hypothesis that red sports clothing causes winning (Thomas V. Pollet and Leonard S. Peperkoorn). If I read that correctly, though, assignment is not random.

7. 15 types of movie posters (Houke de Kwant). Arguably, this is a rational business strategy. If you have a way of signaling "This is an action movie with lots of explosions", that's what you should do. After all, posters are marketing devices first.

12. Correlates of polygamy in Africa (James Fenske) (via)
