I found this site, outofcontextscience.com a while ago and thought I’d share. It’s a collection of quotes from scientific articles that taken out of context make you stop and say ‘Wait, what?!’
A few emaples include:

- the class clowns of today shouldn’t fear an early death
- To the animals, it is inexplicable that suddenly dinner is an hour later or earlier than expected.
