Irrelevant: Ig Nobel ceremony 2007

Last year, the Ig Nobel Prize in ornithology went to Ivan R. Schwab and Philip R. A. May of the University of California Los Angeles, for their paper Woodpeckers and Head Injury. This year, it is likely to go to Doug Zongker of the University of Washington for his enlightening paper Chicken Chicken Chicken: Chicken Chicken (see also his PowerPoint presentation on the subject). Why do I speculate so? The theme of this year’s ceremony: Chicken.

The 2007 Ig Nobel ceremony is tonight, and you can watch the live webcast starting at 7:15 PM Eastern/US. If you can’t do that, you should at least check www.improb.com tomorrow to read about the honorees.

  1. You cant tell me what to do. I do what I want when I want. Likeright now, i want to misspell your last name: Gigerik. Hah, that won’t have any reprocussions whatsoever.

  2. I’m sure its Evan, but that’s not important

    What is important, is that that is one of the most brilliant things I have seen. Certainly it is the most brilliant work I have seen that used only one word. The perfection in this was the subtlety: the use of colons, the believable look of actual data, a scatterplot. Very funny.

    I look forward to updates, but are unable to pursue them at this time.
