ig Nobel 2014 prize winners

Well, it's one of my favourite times of the year - the Ig Nobel prizes have been handed out. I liked the Economics Prize (winner being the Italian government's National Institute of Statistics, for proudly taking the lead in fulfilling the European Union mandate for each country to increase the official size of its national economy by including revenues from prostitution, illegal drug sales, smuggling, and all other unlawful financial transactions between willing participants), but the most useful one for me was the Medicine Prize (for treating "uncontrollable" nosebleeds, using the method of nasal-packing-with-strips-of-cured-pork) as my daughter has nosebleeds every now and then - next time I might try this!
