Do you know why snoring students write worse exams? Why do men misjudge the number of their sexual partners? Or why do stupid people find themselves particularly attractive? On behalf of the Committee for the Nobel Prize for Fun, Mark Benecke has made many more mysteries in search of explanations. And shows once again: Scientific work does not necessarily mean just counting, measuring and documenting, but can be absolutely exciting!


In this issue, Mark Benecke shows the craziest and most bizarre scientific findings. The motto here is: laugh first, then think.


"Kat Menschik's and Mark Benecke's Illustrated Animal Life"


From fairy fireflies, guilty dogs, drunken reindeer and playful octopuses. “Any animal in this beautiful book would make an amazing tattoo. The rockabilly aesthetic contrasts excellently with the claim of scientific venerability that this title calls for. The bat, the pug, the silverfish, the creatures portrayed here in bright colors, with their reduced details on a black background, look like emblems of great coolness.” Kathleen Hildebrand, Süddeutsche Zeitung, Oct. 23, 2020
