This Is Improbable Too
Synchronized Cows, Speedy Brain Extractors, and More WTF ResearchBook - 2014
Marc Abrahams collects the odd, the imaginative and the brilliantly improbable. Here he turns to research on the ins and outs of the very improbable evolutionary innovation that is the human body (brain included): What's the best way to get a monkey to floss regularly? How much dandruff do Pakistani soldiers have? If you add an extra henchman to your bank-robbing gang, how much more money will you 'earn'? How many dimples will be found on the cheeks of 28,282 Greek children? Who is the Einstein of pork carcasses?
