The world of science can teach us so much about the complex networks, forms, and laws that make up our universe. Usually these result from decades of complex research by dedicated scientists and highly intelligent scholars conducting extensive research in their chosen field.
Alas, for most of us (well me, anyway) we can only dream of speaking with authority on a subject that will show to our friends and peers our superior knowledge about a subject so scientific that it that will prove conclusively to them that you are not the loser they thought you were.
Well, that scenario is about to change. No longer will people laugh at you behind your back (or in your face) as you dazzle them with facts that they will never dare refute thanks to the world of Fake Science, a website dedicated to untruths, that can teach us so much about, well, not a lot really. But it is very, very funny.
"Fake Science is a less-than-factual guide to our amazing world." runs the site. Using pictures that look like they come from a 1950s children's textbook or encyclopedia of old that would've taught generations about the way the world works, the site overlays these with hilarious nonsense.
You'll begin reading it and it will start off sounding OK, but then will come the punchline.
For instance it explains the reason cats can purr as... bees. Yes, those bees. According to the picture they live inside a cat and create the purring sound.
Now you know.
