What makes you forget why you entered a room? Why is it safer for a cat to fall from 32 stories than from seven? And why do you feel more drunk from rum and diet cola than rum and regular cola? Join Australia’s science legend Dr Karl for a whirlwind tour of scientific explanations and bizarre facts. Find out how photos of eyes make you honest, why the phrase "sinister buttocks" gets into students' essays, and what the ‘big cover up' is on kissing.
Dr Karl is a well-known Australian science communicator and populariser, who is best known as an author and science commentator on Australian radio and television. He has many strings to his bow having done a degree in Physics and Mathematics, a Masters in Biomedical Engineering, and a degree in Medicine and Surgery. He has also studied Computer Science as well as reading for a Masters in Astrophysics.
