Yes it is a 'shits and grins' thing, but LOTS of people know about it, and it's been going on longer than your sorry ass has probably been alive.

Really? Older than 51 years? Listen, Anon, I've worked for universities, chip fabs, and the DoD longer than you've known how to masturbate.

The Ig Nobels are awarded annually by Improbable Research...

In other words, these "awards" have nothing to do with the Nobel Prize, and are essentially a "shits and grins" thing put on by some "organization" that few people have heard of?

No kidding? I saw it on the Intertubes...

I know everyone is all over Uber and and the other one because the cars are "nicer" and the service "better" than cabs. But I have a basic problem with Uber and Lift, and that is in the fakery of their liability claims. The facts are ( as presented in MANY news stories) if you get injured in an Uber or Lift car, those CORPORATE entities will deny virtually all liability. So you go after the driver, right? But guess what? He's not insured for paying passengers. SHELL GAME.

The story implies that COBOL is an ancient outdated language. But this is not true. COBOL serves a specific niche and does so quite well, and indeed like C and FORTRAN has been enhanced through the ages. Sure, you can't really code a bleeding edge website with COBOL (and FORTRAN), but that's not what they are for.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
