The Magazine: Annals of Improbable Research


The magazine about research that makes people LAUGH, then THINK.

Real research, about anything and everything, from everywhere. Research that's maybe good or bad, important or trivial, valuable or worthless. Compiled for you, by the producers of the Ig Nobel Prize ceremony. Six (6) new Improbable issues every year!
