I think I ignored further links because the earlier links lead to meaningless content.
As I assumed, this academic or his University is trying to get attention with hyped up headlines which are, as you have stated, misleading.
Yeah I learned from my first Mrs Mac's pie in primary school, I indeed had a thermonuclear pie. Holy shit I've almost forgotten when I would have a laugh with police officers back in the day. I remember when 2 turned up on my door step when some kid broke in while I was sleeping and stole my electric tooth brush (without the charger), we were laughing for half the time. I didn't even call it in, one of my neighbours noted someone jumping my back fence when I lived in Sydney.
These days they're mostly all so fucking uptight.
