The Ig Nobels Are Awarded

The Journal of Improbable Research awarded the 2011 Ig Nobel Prizes tonight at Harvard. The BBC covered the event: Beetle’s beer bottle sex wins Ig Nobel Prize.

As strange as some of these projects are, some are actually serious science [well, not the mayor of Vilnius having cars run over with a tank, or the whackos who keep predicting the end of the world].

Whatever happened to the Journal of Irreproducible Results? I have a bound volume of that, several decades old, that I purchased at a garage sale.

I haven’t heard of that one. Sounds like something the climate change deniers and big PHARMA would bury to avoid questions.

The Journal of Irreproducible Results, founded 1955, still thrives. Find it at http://www.jir.com.

Thank you for the information.

My thanks as well, Mr. Sperling. I have spent some pleasant hours reading through that volume!
