I'm not a scientist-nor do I play one on tv-but I can generally get an idea of what the original article is about just by the excerpt, but some of them leave me doing that head tilt thing that dogs do when they hear a high pitched noise:
Here are a few examples:
"it is optimal that she be exposed to the number of planets between five and eight days later"
"to our knowledge, this represents the first description of nasal packing with strips of cured pork for treatment of life-threatening hemorrhage"
"The wrinkly balls did not yield all of their mysteries."
