All The News That's Fit: Toilet seat stunts, sandwich records and concussive coconuts

Many, if not most, published research papers have titles that defy comprehension. They use specialized jargon, complex words and opaque phrases like “nonlinear dynamics.” Sometimes they don’t, and yet they’re still hard to figure out. Here’s an actual title of actual published research study: “Injuries due to Falling Coconuts.”

Writing in the Journal of Trauma in 1984, a doctor reviewed four years of trauma admissions at the Provincial Hospital in Alotau, Milne Bay, Papua New Guinea. He determined that 2.5 percent were due to being struck by falling coconuts, and because coconuts can weigh up to 10 pounds and fall from trees as high as 100 feet, the impact when hitting a person’s head can exceed 1 metric ton.

Four cases of patients with coconut-caused head injuries were described. Two required craniotomies, a surgical operation opening the skull to relieve internal pressure from bleeding and swelling, and two died instantly.
