‘Tis IgNobler in the mind …

I doff my cap to the latest set of Ig Nobel Laureates. These two awards in particular will, I’m sure, prove beneficial to my colleagues and me:

Ig Nobel Peace Prize: Gordon Pennycook and colleagues, for their study “On the Reception and Detection of Pseudo-Profound Bullshit”

Ig Nobel Perception Prize: Atsuki Higashiyama and Kohei Adachi, for investigating whether things look different when you bend over and view them between your legs.
