snarXiv is a site the generates parody abstracts for high-energy physics theory papers, a la arXiv. While the abstracts don’t quite make sense, they eerily resemble the real thing.

snarXiv versus arXiv is another site that gives you a random snarXiv and arXiv paper title, and asks you to tell the fake from the real thing. The fake titles are much harder to recognize than the fake abstracts. Initially, I got the first 5 right, but after about 25 I was down to random chance.
