    oh so cool. but i must be a nerd because most of the journal titles seemed quite logical – hence not all that funny.

    but my favourites:
    Russian Journal of Nondestructive Testing (violent Russians)

    Velvet Light Trap (brings to mind Zouk’s Velvet)

    Medieval Encounters (I’ll browse this for sure)

    International Journal of Group Tensions (I suppose those who contribute to it are solitary creatures)

    Extremophiles (v. interesting…)

    Fuzzy Optimization and Decision Making (this is funny if you misread as ‘optimism’ – I’m bound to make such a mistake initially)

    ‘Soft Computing’ just strikes a funny nerve. Computing veli hard leh.

    The ones I’ll read will be:
    International Journal of Crashworthiness

    Journal of Near-Death Studies

    And i suppose if I wanted more wacky info to clobber friends with when we’re bored I’ll take up Expert Evidence too.

    Liver international had better not be a cooking magazine. 🙂
