This is Improbable : Cheese String Theory, Magnetic Chickens, and Other WTF Research Paperback

Description

Marc Abrahams, the mind behind the internationally renowned Ig Nobel Prizes, is on a mission: to gather the bizarre, the questionable, the brilliant, the downright funny, the profound - everything improbable - from the annals of science research.

What's the best way to slice a ham sandwich, mathematically?

What makes Bobs look especially Bob-like? Is the right or left ear better at discerning lies? Could mice be outfitted with parachutes to kill tree snakes?
