Fun with Science

Today’s look at what is on the library shelves was inspired by April Fool’s Day. From the lists I have seen of famous foolishness, it would seem that scientists are not always the serious, eyes on the slide kind of people one might assume them to be. My favorite example of this behaviour is “The Journal of Irreproducible Results”, a science humor magazine which we stopped getting in 1993, but is still on our shelves. The spoofs and parodies of scientific concepts have not gone out of date and make a good study break. We also have “The Best of the Journal of Irreproducible Results” which is a book compilation from the journal.
