The 2018 Ig Noble awards
« on: September 30, 2018, 05:28:03 AM »
You have to wonder just how on earth these researchers managed to get funding for some of this shite  lol:

ANTHROPOLOGY PRIZE [SWEDEN, ROMANIA, DENMARK, THE NETHERLANDS, GERMANY, UK, INDONESIA, ITALY] Tomas Persson, Gabriela-Alina Sauciuc, and Elainie Madsen, for collecting evidence, in a zoo, that chimpanzees imitate humans about as often, and about as well, as humans imitate chimpanzees.

MEDICAL EDUCATION PRIZE [JAPAN] Akira Horiuchi, for the medical report "Colonoscopy in the Sitting Position: Lessons Learned From Self-Colonoscopy."  eeek: eeek:

NUTRITION PRIZE [ZIMBABWE, TANZANIA, UK] James Cole, for calculating that the caloric intake from a human-cannibalism diet is significantly lower than the caloric intake from most other traditional meat diets.

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.
