Game of Knowns

Author(s): Karl Kruszelnicki

Popular Science

There are Known Knowns, Known Unknowns, and Unknown Unknowns. And then there is Dr Karl. The inimitable Dr Karl is back again with more scintillating science scenarios, techy tales and tasty morsels to sate even the most haemoglobin-thirsty of his army of Twitter followers. In Game of Knowns, he tells us why psychopaths make good kings, how smart phones dumb down our conversations, explains why the left side of your face is the most attractive, how the female worker bee gets a raw deal, and why we drink beer faster when it is served in a curved glass. He also gives us the low-down on comets, explains the magic of hoverboards, solemnly shares why dark matter matters, and spills the scientific basis of wealth distribution. It is thereby decreed: science is the only true ruler of the kingdom, and there is none better to claim the crown than Australia's most trusted scientist - Dr Karl.
