Submission + - 2011 Ig Nobel prizes: laugh first, think later (networkworld.com)

alphadogg writes: The quirky Ig Nobel prizes honoring some of the world's funniest if not the most practical academic research will be handed out Thursday night at Harvard University during ceremonies that will include help from actual Nobel laureates. The theme this year is chemistry, but that doesn't really restrict which entries might win, judging from research that has claimed Ig Nobels in the past. For instance, last year the prize for medicine went to a Netherlands researcher who discovered that riding roller coasters alleviates asthma symptoms. The prize for engineering went to an international team "for perfecting a method to collect whale snot using a remote-control helicopter."
