Improbable and Wacky Science

The 2008 Ig Nobel Awards are out!

My favorite this year_

PHYSICS PRIZE. Dorian Raymer of the Ocean Observatories Initiative at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, USA, and Douglas Smith of the University of California, San Diego, USA, for proving mathematically that heaps of string or hair or almost anything else will inevitably tangle themselves up in knots.

I like the Chemistry prize. Care to try it? "Have a Coke and a smile."
