Ig Nobel 2015

The annual Ig Nobel Awards is always a favourite and this year some Australian scientists have excelled themselves with the chemistry prize for developing a process to un-boil an egg. However I think the overall winner this year should go to the biology prize:
BIOLOGY PRIZE  — Bruno Grossi, Omar Larach, Mauricio Canals, Rodrigo A. Vásquez [CHILE], José Iriarte-Díaz [CHILE, USA], for observing that when you attach a weighted stick to the rear end of a chicken, the chicken then walks in a manner similar to that in which dinosaurs are thought to have walked.
