Coming next: a study of how Wile E Coyote survived all those falls

July 3rd, 2011

Astonishing:

Academics have carried out a detailed analysis of the 700 head injuries suffered by characters in the Asterix comic books, in a paper published by a respected medical journal.

[...]

The researchers, led by Marcel Kamp of the Neurosurgical department at Heinrich-Heine University in Düsseldorf, conclude: "The favourable outcome is astonishing, since outcome of traumatic brain injury in the ancient world is believed to have been worse than today and also since no diagnostic or therapeutic procedures were performed."

@Peanutweeter matches images from Peanuts cartoons with text from tweets.

It's sometimes quite funny, but I'm not sure how long it'll last before the estate of Charles M Schulz send a cease-and-desist notice, so if it sounds like something you'd enjoy you might want to follow that link sooner rather than later.
