Horrible Science: Evil Inventions

Dare you discover the bottom-stabbing bike seat? Or test-drive the terrible toilet snorkel? From gruesome gadgets to murderous machines, shudder at these evil inventions! You might think scientists exist for the noble advancement of mankind. You might think they want to make people’s lives better! But in fact those sickening scientists have made some of the most awful gadgets you could ever imagine, from the atom bomb to the electric chair! That’s not 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!
