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".


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

Waste anyone?
