So I heard recently the IgNobels were announced!!! I <3 the IgNobels. Someday, Sci would like to be JUST famous enough to live blog the IgNobel ceremony and cover all the winners. SO FUN. But until that day, Sci will have to cover them from afar! And to that end, I thought it’d be fun to take a few Friday Weird Science posts and make them about the IgNobel prizes, with my particular favorites, and of course all the weird science behind them. You can see the full list of this year’s winners here.
The only hard part was…which one to cover FIRST! They are all SO GOOD. But Sci had a clear fav. I love funny beards.
But you know, I do worry about these soupcatchers. After all, if they are SOUPcatchers…what other things do they CATCH!?
Apparently, quite a bit.
