Since a few #medlibs asked... I've dug up some of my favorite examples of bad / wtf MeSH indexing, along with a few of my go-to searches to show how automatic term mapping (ATM) in #PubMed can do unexpected things.

A thread šŸ‘‡
"The importance of good images in using hair to screen for breast cancer" (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11333872) has been indexed with "Magic"[Mesh]. I'm guessing it's because the next letter, on page 2 of pdf, has the title "Science or Black Magic?" #medlibs

I mentioned this one during the #medlibs chat: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21640057

MeSH fun includes being indexed with "Telepathy"[Majr]. I assume based on context it should maybe have been "Telepathology"[Mesh]. But also... did you know there is a Mesh term for telepathy?
