Today I came across this gem on the internet: apparently an Australian science journal posted this as part of their Christmas Crackers.

https://www.mja.com.au/journal/2013/199/11/hobbit-unexpected-deficiency

One of the best pieces of pseudo-science I've come across :)

It would be wonderful if it was ;-)

And secretly I still hope I can one day study something Tolkien-related. Perhaps which personality traits are characteristic for readers of Tolkien's work? Or how reading Tolkien can improve your overall mental well-being?
