Improbable Research - Kansas

The middle of the US is often quoted as being "as flat as a pancake". Such statements are typically subjective but you can always rely on some anal scientist to come along and test such hyperbole.

So in a peer reviewed article  Fonstad et al (2003) tested that hypothesis and concluded that Kansas was indeed flatter than a pancake.

They didn't manage to explain why Kansas was so dull
