    Author: ABRAHAMS MARC

    Marc Abrahams collects the odd, the imaginative, and the brilliantly improbable from around the world. Here he investigates 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 soldiers in Pakistan's army have?If you add an extra henchman to your bank-robbing gang, how much more money will you 'earn'?Why is it so impossible to estimate the number of stupid people in circulation?How many dimples will be found on the cheeks of 28,282 Greek children?Who is the Einstein of pork carasses? He also shares unlikely medical cases, including a boy with an 'Eiffel head injury' (involving the tower), and even more unlikely inventions, such as a patented system for attacking your enemy with a biowaste bomb. Abrahams' latest tour of improbable science is guaranteed to make you laugh, then make you think about your body in a whole new way.
