And now for your enjoyment pleasure - the Ig Nobel Awards for this year


Every year a committee decides who wins Ig Nobel Awards which is for the weirdest (as in why on earth would anyone study that?) research someone has done. This link goes to an article that lists this year’s winners. The article itself is worth a read as someone with a really good sense of humor wrote it.

From the article (copy/paste):
“Winners receive a paper cube (which the recipients printed and folded themselves) and a note for $10,000,000,000,000. Not US dollars, of course, but a relic from the days of Zimbabwe’s hyperinflation. According to reports, this was the sum required to buy a loaf of bread in 2009.”

Anyway here is the article which is good for a laugh:
