These are three-minute videos about research that makes people laugh, then makes them think.
Each collection – each episode – is composed of bits and pieces and people from the magazine Annals of Improbable Research, from Ig Nobel Prize lectures and ceremonies and other live events, and from many other sources. We have been collecting this material for almost twenty years.
