As promised, I drew the two winners for the signed copies of Dr. Karl’s latest book “Short Back & Science” earlier today. Everyone who commented on the original post was entered into the draw and the winner’s were chosen using random.org’s true random number generator. The winning numbers were number 1 and 4.
Congratulations to ANTHONY* and JULES FABER, you’ve each won a copy of the book.
The two winners have been notified by email and books will be shipped once I get address confirmation.
Please note; there were two Anthony’s who entered this giveaway. The winner was the first Anthony to comment on the post about Jet fuel. An email has been sent to your email address re: the prize.
Thank you to everyone who entered. Unfortunately I only had a couple of copies of this book this time to give out. I do however have a month long giveaway going this month, where I will constantly be giving away signed and unsigned books, bookmarks and book swag in honour of this blog’s 3rd birthday anniversary.
Lean back and settle in for cutting-edge scientific snippets from the trend-setting Dr Karl Kruszelnicki.
In Short Back & Science , Dr Karl combs through some of the greatest scientific conundrums of our age, such as what is killing half the bacteria on Earth every two days and why don’t mole rats get cancer? Why would anyone pay $40 million for a cup of tea, and how did a toilet seat help to end the First World War?
Are bananas really slippery, radioactive and loaded with potassium? What do clouds weigh? And why are there scientists running around naked in the Antarctic?
Brushing aside any hype about coconuts and antioxidants, there is no one better to trim down to the facts than Australia’s most trusted scientist, Dr Karl.
