Strange Scientific Studies
Wired has pulled together a list of ten scientific papers they consider to be absurd (or at least have absurd titles). They include:
- Effects of cocaine on honeybee dance behaviour. (Journal of Experimental Biology)
- Pigeons can discriminate “good” and “bad” paintings by children. (Animal Cognition)
- The nature of navel fluff. (Medical Hypotheses)
