…Scientists study strange things?

Sexy Chicken

Though science is responsible for many of the greatest discoveries ever made, it’s not always so serious.

Oddee put together a list of the 10 Most Bizarre Scientific Papers, and despite the topic of study, each was a serious paper, conducted by serious scientists with serious tests and serious results.

Want to know what the effect of country music is on suicide?

Done. (It does.)

Want a comprehensive list of foreign bodies that have been found inside of people’s rectums?

Done. (Among the items: A frozen pig’s tail.)

Want to know if chickens prefer beautiful humans?

Done. (They Do.)

Seriously.

…Perfect breasts have a formula?

Victoria Beckham and Caprice Bourret - BreastsIn what must have been one of the most difficult and most painstaking research projects of all time, a cosmetic surgeon spent hours studying photos of topless models to determine the perfect pair.

Apparently, his findings indicate that the perfect chest isn’t about size. Instead, it’s all about proportion.

“The ideal is a 45 to 55 percent proportion – that is the nipple sits not at the half-way mark down the breast, but at about 45 percent from the top.”

So who came out on top?

Lingerie model Caprice Bourret, who apparently has the best of the breast.

And the worst?

It’s a sad day for Victoria Beckham, who apparently has “unnaturally round” mounds.

Tough job indeed.

…Jennifer sutton can see her own heart?

Jennifer Sutton’s Heart

I can only imagine what this experience must feel like:

Jennifer Sutton, a 23-year-old Londoner, received a heart transplant after her old one said ‘no more’, and she then put that old heart on display at an exhibition in London.

    “Seeing my heart for the first time is an emotional and surreal experience. It caused me so much pain and turmoil when it was inside me. Seeing it sitting here is extremely bizarre and very strange. Finally I can see this odd looking lump of muscle that has given me so much upset. It’s tremendous it has become an object of fascination and will get people thinking about the disease, heart transplants and organ donation.”

I guess she really can wear her heart on her sleeve.

…You can build a rocket?

Launch It Challenge

If buying a rocket kit to get to space seems like cheating, then build your own with a little help from Instructables.

The guide includes a rocket, a launch pad, and an electronic igniter, so all you’ll need is the motor to start invading the sky.
