The Schnebel Prize Committee has been in existence for 27 years;
all these are comedians of the magazine “The Unbelievable Research” (Annals
of Improbable Research), and such a prize is awarded for the most
absurd inventions in any field of science.
For example, one of the winners of the Ig Nobel Prize of this year

hundreds of patients from thirty to ninety years. True, prove that
big ears allow you to hear better – and could not …
An entire group of scientists from the USA were awarded the Nobel Prize
Canada, Switzerland, Holland (Otto Braendli, Christian Lo Cascio,
Alfred Zahn, Alex Suarez, Milo Puhan, Markus Heitz), which
proposed to treat snoring with the help of the Australian musical pipe
natives – didgeridoo. The result is obvious: four months
for half an hour, the patient begins to snore every day
much smaller and quieter.
Another team of scientists from the United States, Singapore and France under
the guidance of Marc-Antoine Fardin (Marc-Antoine Fardeen) proved that
cats are liquid. Because they also easily occupy volume
any vessel (suitable for their size). This is evidenced by
numerous examples and photographs of these pet people, and now

Another group of scientists (something this time they rushed

Great Britain (Ilaria Bufalari, Matteo Martini, Salvatore Maria
Aglioti, Maria Antonietta Stazi) made a truly world discovery:
It turns out not only outsiders, but the twins themselves are confused
