- What researchers are finding in centuries-old latrines from Denmark, Turkey and other parts of the ancient world.
- Nasal mucous (boogers) pressed into library books.
- Penis-shaped mushrooms. (What’s gross about that?)
- Fatbergs – globules of fats, oils and assorted trash clogging sewer pipes around the world.
