Smelly Science (Horribles)

BookBucks Review and collect 20 points.
In ancient Egypt, a cure for a scabby head was to rub it with hippopotamus fat and mouldy bread. Strangely enough it worked. What the Egyptian doctors did not know was that they had discovered penicillin.
When aspirin was first developed by the German chemist Felix Hoffmann in 1897, the salicylic acid used to make it came from the bark of the willow tree.
in 1973, a scientific research station at Cranfield, England, had its roof blown off. The strange thing was that the establishment was set up to study the effects of the wind.
