Ig Nobel Awards Webcast — Tonight!

In hilarious on October 1, 2009 at 1:46 pm


If you missed the Igs, you can still catch a list of the Improbable Research Ig Nobel winners. One of the more distinctive winners holds a patent on a bra that turns into a face mask. Apparently bandanas and handkerchiefs are passe for that use.

The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think. The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative — and spur people’s interest in science, medicine, and technology.

If you’re available tonight, and in Cambridge, MA, trot over to beautiful Sanders Theater to watch, cheer, laugh, and throw paper airplanes.

If you are free tonight elsewhere, catch the live webcast. Honestly, it’s the most fun awards show I’ve ever had the pleasure to attend.
