"His visits with eccentric celebrities have made Louis Theroux an authority on weirdness. But here, writing for the Magazine, he says his time off from TV has made him ask whether weird is just in the eye of the beholder. "
(Incidentally, looking at the photo reveals the nature of his eye ailment. Where his glasses are you can see his face looks smaller --> he's short sighted. The profile of my face is magnified by my glasses as I'm long sighted. When they put fake glasses on characters on screen to make them look nerdy, you can see they're not real as you don't see any distortion at the kind of angle of this photo.)

"Aqua Teen Hunger Force are ready to hit the big screen – the movie has been picked up by a US distributor and is set for release there in March.
For the many who won’t be familiar with the cult cartoon, it focuses (loosely) on three living pieces of fast food – Frylock, Master Shake and Meatwad, who live in New Jersey and often have adventures involving their neighbour's pool. In the early days of the show they used to fight crime and teen hunger, but the twisted nature of the show meant that by its fourth season anything resembling an ongoing plot had gone completely out the window."
"People in the public eye are often drawn into promoting theories, therapies, and campaigns that make no scientific sense. The leaflet, entitled Need to Speak to a Scientist? includes numerous examples of quackery and pseudo-scientific nonsense attributed to celebrities."
