Ig Nobel Prizes, 2010

Announced. As usual, Wikipedia has a brief summary of the winners.

Nakagaki wins another Ig Nobel for his work on slime molds (work which CF flagged in an earlier post here).

The Physics prize actually piques my interest. I can contemplate a half-dozen theories that could explain the result, but am hard pressed to say what’s actually going on.



  1. Maybe the socks have been salted. I like the medicine one, too.

  2. CF, I would have thought you’d prefer the public health one.
