Ig Nobel Prize 2010

I haven’t seen the ceremony award 2010 so far but read of a prize for discovering that symptoms of asthma can be treated with a roller-coaster ride (Simon Rietveld of the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and Ilja van Beest of Tilburg University, The Netherlands) and of the management prize for demonstrating mathematically that organizations would become more efficient if they promoted people at random (Alessandro Pluchino, Andrea Rapisarda, and Cesare Garofalo of the University of Catania, Italy), yea, yea.
