2.  A study that found chimps imitate humans about as well as humans imitate chimps.

3.  A study that found wine experts can smell a single fly floating in a glass of wine.

4.  A study that looked at how good saliva is at cleaning dirty surfaces.

5.  A scientific paper called, "Colonoscopy in the Sitting Position: Lessons Learned from Self-Colonoscopy."

6.  A study that found most people don't read instruction manuals.

7.  A study that found that cannibals don't get a ton of calories.

8.  A study that looked at why people yell and curse while driving, and measured the frequency of their screams.
