I suppose there are a lot of oddball studies out there. Competition to get published is stiff, so you need eye-catching hard data to penetrate journals.
But this upstanding one just gave me the giggles.
It was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, better known by the acronym PNAS.
Dr. Mautz's co-authors included Drs. Wong and Peters, of Melbourne.
And, inevitably, Dr. Peters' first name is........ Richard.
Thank you, SMOD!
