The mind behind the infamous Ig Nobel Prizes presents an addictive collection of improbable research all about us - and you

 What's the best way to get a monkey to floss regularly?

 How much dandruff do Pakistani soldiers have?

 If you add an extra henchman to your bank-robbing gang, how much more money will you 'earn'?

 How many dimples will be found on the cheeks of 28,282 Greek children?

 Who is the Einstein of pork carcasses?
