Extreme Experimentation

What would it be like to always tell the truth about what you were thinking?  This is one of the month long experiments A.J. Jacobs reports on in his book My Life as an Experiment.  Jacobs made his name trying to live a full year according to the rules in the Bible and writing about it in The Year of Living BiblicallyMy Life as an Experiment includes details of ten other challenges he gives himself such as:  living by the 110 rules George Washington wrote in a notebook, impersonating an actor at the Academy Awards, and my favorite, outsourcing personal tasks to a company in India.  In fact, it made me wonder if I could have that same company write my blog post.  Jacobs book is a good, funny, simple summer read.
