This is why I love NPR: Scientists Befuddled in Missing Teaspoon Caper
The best part of this is that the article that NPR reports on was published in BMJ:
The case of the disappearing teaspoons: longitudinal cohort study of the displacement of teaspoons in an Australian research institute
“…the scientific literature is strangely bereft of teaspoon related research”? “The tragedy of the commons applies equally well to teaspoons”? Poetry. I’m totally nominating this for an Ig Nobel.
