The 2015 Ig Nobel Prize or It Seems That scientists have too much of free time

CHEMISTRY PRIZE — for inventing a chemical recipe to partially un-boil an egg.
 PHYSICS PRIZE — for testing the biological principle that nearly all mammals empty their bladders in about 21 seconds (plus or minus 13 seconds).
 LITERATURE PRIZE — for discovering that the word “huh?” (or its equivalent) seems to exist in every human language — and for not being quite sure why.
 MATHEMATICS PRIZE — for trying to use mathematical techniques to determine whether and how Moulay Ismael the Bloodthirsty, the Sharifian Emperor of Morocco, managed, during the years from 1697 through 1727, to father 888 children.
 BIOLOGY PRIZE — for observing that when you attach a weighted stick to the rear end of a chicken, the chicken then walks in a manner similar to that in which dinosaurs are thought to have walked.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
