The Ig Noble awards are out.

If you are unfamilar with the Ig Noble awards. They are for discoveries "that cannot, or should not, be reproduced."

They have quite a bit of humor attached to them. Some of this years winners are:
A way to extract vanillin, or vanilla fragrance and flavoring, from cow dung.

A study showing rats sometimes fail to distinguish between a person speaking Japanese backwards and a person speaking Dutch backwards.

The so-called "gay bomb," that "will make enemy soldiers become sexually irresistible to each other".

Sincerely,
Brendhan
