Are you partial to an odd conspiracy theory? This piece considers just why even the most rational people might buy into conspiracy theories.
And whether or not you are a fan, The Apprentice has recently returned to our screens, and this ‘psychological assessment’ gives a somewhat amusing account of just why we might love/hate the show.

Have a good weekend, everybody!
