quirkEver wondered why bad musicians always win the Eurovision Song Contest, or how incompetent politicians get elected?  Using scientific methods to investigate unusual topics Quirkology brings a new understanding to the backwaters of the human mind and takes us to places where mainstream scientists fear to tread. Findings include: How does your surname influence your life? What does the way you walk reveal about your personality? Why should women have men write their personal ads? What is the funniest joke in the world?
