I just went back and found this in my Yahoo email from 2006.

Do actions literally speak louder than words?

Does a combination of the Nintendo Power Pad, Doritos and Mountain Dew improve cognitive ability?

And exactly how does the Marquette Interchange Project affect booty call rituals?

These and other burning questions will be answered at Weird Science II: Your Physics is Dead.

Milwaukee’s second “science fair for grown-ups” features amateur researchers answering offbeat questions via the scientific method. The results of their wacky experiments will be displayed one night only in a vacant storefront on Broadway.

Here is a preview of some of the noteworthy projects, along with MKE’s own highly unscientific hypotheses.

Project Fool Proof

Question Can subjects go three hours doing nothing but eating a certain fruit or writing a certain sentence?

MKE’s hypothesis The fruit-eaters will be successful if they consume mangos. We could eat mangos all day.

Project The Chotch Factor: An Anthropological Study of the Evolution of the Douchebag

Question Why do guys who try to appear cool come across as losers?

MKE’s hypothesis The angle of one’s flipped collar is directly proportional to one’s lameness

Question Is there a point where electricity stops being deadly and begins reanimating dead tissue?

MKE’s hypothesis The researcher gets arrested for this experiment

Question Is the current freeway construction detrimental to late-night booty calls?

MKE’s hypothesis Those orange cones along the interstate are revealed to be a total mood-killer

Project The Ultimate Conspiracy Hypothesis
