Ig® Nobel Winners
The 2009 Ig® Nobel Prize Ceremony took place yesterday evening and the 10 winners were announced. The Peace Prize was won by a team from Bern, Switzerland, for determining whether it is better to be smashed over the head with a full bottle of beer or an empty bottle. The Physics Prize went to researchers who determined why pregnant women don't tip over. And the Public Health Prize was won by a team that invented a bra which can be swiftly converted into a pair of gas masks, one for a friend, if the wearer doesn't mind flashing her boobs in an emergency.
