The 2011 Ignoble prizes have been announced.
My favorite is for the research reported in this paper:
"Dizziness in Discus Throwers is Related to Motion Sickness Generated While Spinning," Philippe Perrin, Cyril Perrot, Dominique Deviterne, Bruno Ragaru and Herman Kingma, Acta Oto-laryngologica, vol. 120, no. 3, March 2000, pp. 390–5.
These folks are having even more fun than economists do.
It's really quite easy.
