Ig Nobel Prizes

Ig Nobel Prizes are the not-so-well-known alternative of the famous Nobel Prizes. Each year since 1989, ten scientists receive prizes for “research that makes people LAUGH and then THINK”.

The Stories

Watch six scientists uncovering random subjects such as botomless soup bowls and necrophilia amongst ducks. Their studies pertain to the most important subjects of our daily life: having sex, food, money, death, and having sex again.
