Ah, the Ig Nobels. Where else are we supposed to hear about papers on homosexual necrophilia among mallard ducks?

Did you see what the Engineering Prize went to?

Collecting whale snot?

: Karina Acevedo-Whitehouse and Agnes Rocha-Gosselin of the Zoological Society of London, UK, and Diane Gendron of Instituto Politecnico Nacional, Baja California Sur, Mexico, for perfecting a method to collect whale snot, using a remote-control helicopter.

Tell me it's not true!

Aaagh! I've been had!

Nuts, I'm trying to find the story you had on the the city employee who researched the subject, then gave the Power Book presentation, that demonstrated beyond a shadow of a doubt that "Money = Happiness."

I like the Economics award, though legimately it ought to go to Proshares which through leveraged short ETFs like SDS, SKF and SRS gives the unsophisticated individual investor the opportunity to profit mightily from market collapse. What a country!
