Ig Nobels-Awards for funny and improbable research


Recommended Posts

I just came across the Ig nobels. They are awards for research that make people laugh and think.


Winners have included a woman who developed a bra that can be converted into two protective face masks, a study into why leaning to the left makes the Eiffel tower seem smaller, why coffee spills when you walk with it and lots of other strange things. The Literature prize this year went to the the US Government General Accountability Office, for issuing a report about reports about reports that recommends the preparation of a report about the report about reports about reports.
