Most Improbable

Here are some interesting tidbits from the latest issue of Mini-AIR.

(1) An article in Journal of Forensic Sciences called
Blood and Tissue Spatter Associated with Chainsaw Dismemberment
. This reminds me a bit of a problem that I thought would be great for Physics 103 (on 'order-of-magnitude physics') on the mean free path of a person after they exploded in a certain way.

(2) An article called Self strangulation by hanging from cloth towel dispensers in Canadian schools. Blame Canada, indeed.

(3) An article in Journal of Food Science called Magnetic Resonance Temperature Mapping of Microwave-Fried Chicken Fingers. I wonder if any of the chicken fingers were shaped like Italy?
