At Last...

...A decision I can agree with:

Nobel Peace Prize: Malala Yousafzai, Kailash Satyarthi win 2014 award

The list of Ig Nobel prizes for this year are pretty impressive, too:


This one is extremely noble:
Economics: ISTAT — 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
Bunga. Bunga.

And this one too: Arctic Science:
Eigil Reimers and Sindre Eftestøl, for testing how reindeer react to seeing humans who are disguised as polar bears.
