Ig Noble Prizes for 2012

The 2012 Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony took place on Thursday, September 20th at Sanders Theater, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Ten (10) prizes were awarded. The winners have all done something that first makes people LAUGH and then makes them THINK.

This somewhat farcical ceremony never fails to delight in its mocking style of the seriousness of traditional scientific research. Presented here is a 10 minute highlight (my personal choices) of the 1 hr and 40 min presentation. The pixelated (in parts) video and the raucous music is in keeping with the ethos of the event.
