Ever wondered why geese honk when they fly overhead? Or whether identical twins are actually identical? Or why the monarch butterfly bothers to come back to Canada after wintering in Mexico? Or whether a black hole can eventually swallow an entire galaxy?

Wonder no more. You can get the answers to these questions and more on the Quirks & Quarks Question Roadshow, which is being recorded at Concordia University on May 25.

Among the scientists with the answers will be many from McGill, including Dr. Tracy Webb, Dr. Gil Holder, Dr. David Bird, Dr. Laura Timms, Dr. Andre Costopoulos, Dr. Kathy Mullen, and Dr. Isabelle De Bie.

Join host Bob McDonald for the brain-teasing, audience-pleasing, Google-seizing Quirks Question Roadshow.

We'll be in the D.B. Clarke Theatre at Concordia University on the evening of May 25.  The theatre is located in the Hall Building, 1455 De Maisonneuve Blvd. West.

Admission is free, and no tickets are required.  Doors open at 7:00pm, and the show starts at 7:30pm. First come, first seated. So get there early to get good seats.  See you there.
