Ig Nobel prizes

With the Economics Nobel prize announced yesterday (please don't come with the usual it's-not-an-actual-Nobel-prize story), it is always fun to remember research at the other end of the spectrum.

The Ig Nobel prize awards were announced this month as well, which aim is to reward " research that makes people laugh and then think". I particularlly like the "Growing Diamonds from Tequila" Chemistry award.

Perhaps they should have given Obama an Ig Nobel peace prize too! It surely made me laugh and then think... :)
