Fun Paper Friday
Have you ever thought about how much force a beer bottle can exert when you strike something with it? Bollinger et al. have! Do you think full or empty bottles are more dangerous?
Bolliger, S. A., Ross, S., Oesterhelweg, L., Thali, M. J., & Kneubuehl, B. P. (2009). Are full or empty beer bottles sturdier and does their fracture-threshold suffice to break the human skull? Journal of Forensic and Legal Medicine, 16(3), 138–142. http://doi.org/10.1016/j.jflm.2008.07.013
