It could mean important advances in the field of science (http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/improb/air/2006/00000012/00000005/art00006)!

(Hint: It's a PDF, but it's nothing frightening or dangerous, promise)

Apparently, my authentication to this fulltext delivery has expired, by which I mean the link probably requires you to be logged in or something. Could you give us the gist of it?

Yep, my linking just sucks. BUT I FIXED IT. Although now it requires a second link to download the PDF. But there's a nice button there that says PDF to move you to it. Sorry about that.

I think it has something to do with chicken.

All I know is, I know who to blame when I get into a car accident with a Rolls Royce, cutting short my dreams of becoming a rock star.

I'm mostly just excited that there is a Journal called "Annals of Improbable Research" that that was published in. I am skimming what issues that site has online and am thoroughly entertained.

Also, I wanted to quote The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra.

I damn near died laughing the first time I encountered this paper: Get Me Off Your Fucking Mailing List (http://www.scs.stanford.edu/~dm/home/papers/remove.pdf)

Everyone gets directed spam, and academics are no different. People set up scam conferences where they accept everything and just collect registration fees. I ran into this while reading the site of a legit academic. The x and y axis of Figure 2 kill me.
