I'm sure that you heard about that Academy-Award winning guy receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. But do you know who got this year's Ig Nobel Peace Prize? Why, it was the Air Force Wright Laboratory, Dayton, Ohio, USA, for instigating research & development on a chemical weapon -- the so-called "gay bomb" -- that will make enemy soldiers become sexually irresistible to each other. In 2004, the Ig Nobel Prize in this category was won by Daisuke Inoue of Hyogo, Japan, for inventing karaoke, thereby providing an entirely new way for people to learn to tolerate each other.
The Ig Nobel Prize: you can waste the whole afternoon reading this stuff.
