Ig Nobel Prize

Leave a comment

In 1991, Marc Abrahams created the Ig Nobel Prize to recognize research that, according to Abrahams, “makes people laugh, then makes people think.” The best part is that the awards are handed out at the ceremony by actual Nobel Prize recipients. This is a pretty entertaining TED Talk, especially when he describes some of the winners of the award. I listened to this one but then had to actually watch the video because there are a lot of visuals. Enjoy!
