Horrible Science: Evil Inventions

An epic new look. A roomier layout with bigger pics. Loads of gross facts to cause chaos in your brain. Laugh yourself sick. We all love a good invention, don’t we. But not all inventions are good. You might think scientists exist for the noble advancement of mankind. You know, to make people’s lives better. Trouble is, when science is bad it can be very naughty indeed. Atom bombs, electric chairs. The bottom-stabbing bike seat and the terrible toilet snorkel. That’s not quite so nice, is it? In fact, it’s really quite nasty. Your teacher probably won’t tell you these things in science class – but Horrible Science will!
