Random Whimsy – NCBI ROFL

8 Jul

Are you getting tired of reading heady intellectual journal articles but don’t want to be caught procrastinating? Do you want to have fun while also reading proper academic papers?

If you answered yes (and even if you didn’t), I bring you NCBI ROFL

The writers at NCBI have scoured the PubMed database to find published scientific articles that will keep you entertained for hours.

They post real scientific articles with funny subjects from the PubMed database

Some of their favourite posts include

Accidental condom inhalation.

Does garlic protect against vampires? An experimental study.

Finding the frequency of Fido’s farts.

Harry Potter and the curse of headache.

A woman’s history of vaginal orgasm is discernible from her walk.

    In the vampire one, I really think they should have used vampire bats, not leeches. Should we replicate?
