Marc Abrahams on the Ig Nobels

While I’ve long enjoyed the Ig Nobel prizes — the annual awards for unusual and entertaining science — I’ve never seen the award’s creator, Marc Abrahams, speak. Having now watched him give an NSF lecture, it’s highly recommended. Very funny stuff — and the video snippet in the opening with Troy Hurtubise in his anti-bear suit is priceless.
