The *cool* Nobel award winners

There's a patent on the combover?!?


Also, for proving the 5-second rule is really true:

"...The Ig Nobel in public health went to Jillian Clarke her for investigation into the "five-second rule," which says that food dropped on the floor is safe to eat as long as it's picked up within five seconds.


Her research showed many floors had surprisingly little bacteria. The conclusion: If the floor is clean, it's safe to eat what's dropped on it, even after five seconds. Abrahams said Clarke's research also studied how the sexes reacted to dropped food.


"A lot more women than men will pick up food from the floor and eat it when they dropped it," Abrahams said. "That's unexpected..."

I'm really surprised that women are more likely to still eat stuff than men

I don't even eat food that's touched the counter.

"...The medicine prize went to Steven Stack of Wayne State University and James Gundlach of Auburn University, for their 1992 report, "The Effect of Country Music on Suicide." The research of 49 metropolitan areas concluded "that the greater the airtime devoted to country music, the greater the white suicide rate." ....."

I'm sorry, but

This however, doesn't surprise me at all.

I'm sorry, but
Well, when I hear country music I feel like blowing my brains out too!

And I love the 5 second rule too, but the damned dog always gets there first!
