Here piggy, piggy, piggy

Have you heard of the Marsden Fund? No! Well it is a fund of about $38 Million of public funds administered by the Royal Society.

So what, you say.

Well they have just awarded grants and  a fair chunk of the grants were awarded to members of the judging panel.

Pigs, snouts, trough anyone.

For example;

One panelist, award-winning lesbian novelist Annamarie Jagose, won close to $500,000 for a new cultural history of sex that will include research into "the hustler, the modern orgasm" and "the sexual culture of Auckland".

or;

The extended mind in early modern England, to be studied by panellist Professor EB Tribble at a cost of $455,000.

Waste anyone?
