Improbable TV

If you haven't been reading Annals of Improbable Research, you're missing a good thing. You probably know them as the people behind the incredibly popular IgNobel Prize or the Luxuriant Hair Clubs for Scientists (covered ages ago on Neatorama).

But what you probably don't know is that they have a very cool video clip section called Improbable TV. It's a series of 3-minute long bits-and-pieces videos that highlight the weirdest, funniest, and most amazing moments from science papers and research talks.

Take, for example, this one about a book filled with a million random digits "written for and by people who love numbers" (beware the line 2080!)
