Indiana University Cinema film holdings include Alfred Kinsey's sexually explicit films and videos.

The “Kinsey Collection” refers to the roughly 14,000 films and videos belonging to the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction, which has offices on the school’s Bloomington campus in southern Indiana. Biologist Alfred Kinsey, who started the institute in 1947 and died in 1956, and his researchers collected the films as part of his world-famous (and the institute’s ongoing) research into human sexuality.
The Kinsey Collection most historically valuable, consists of the one-reel historic stag films made independently from the 1920s through the 1960s. Liana Zhou, Kinsey’s director of library and archives, knows of no other public collection of stag films like it. Kinsey Institute employees make it emphatically clear that all materials are owned separately from the school and are acquired without tax dollars.

Why you can't have more than 150 friends.

The ultimate brain teaser

Gittin’ Jiggy wid it.
Relative to their body size, monkeys, apes and humans have unusually big brains. It has been suggested that this reflects the complexity of their social lives. This hypothesis is gaining support thanks to ground-breaking research by a University of Liverpool scientist, whose methods have been taken up by primate researchers around the world. These same methods could soon shed light on the story of human evolution.
So how many monkeys would it take before you stopped caring?
That’s not a rhetorical question. We actually know the number.

 
The Monkeysphere is the group of people who each of us, using our monkeyish brains, are able to conceptualize as people. If the monkey scientists are monkey right, it’s physically impossible for this to be a number much larger than 150.
