The 19th annual IG Nobel Prizes have been awarded and here are some of the silly winners:
BIOLOGY PRIZE: Fumiaki Taguchi, Song Guofu, and Zhang Guanglei of
Kitasato University Graduate School of Medical Sciences in Sagamihara,
Japan, for demonstrating that kitchen refuse can be reduced more than
90% in mass by using bacteria extracted from the feces of giant pandas.
PEACE PRIZE: Stephan Bolliger, Steffen Ross, Lars Oesterhelweg, Michael
Thali and Beat Kneubuehl of the University of Bern, Switzerland, for
determining â€” by experiment â€” whether it is better to be
smashed over the head with a full bottle of beer or with an empty bottle.
ECONOMICS PRIZE: The directors, executives, and auditors of four Icelandic
banks â€” Kaupthing Bank, Landsbanki, Glitnir Bank, and Central
Bank of Iceland â€” for demonstrating that tiny banks can be rapidly
transformed into huge banks, and vice versa â€” and for demonstrating
that similar things can be done to an entire national economy.
