If you've never heard of the IgNobels, take some time out to peruse the list of winners, present and past. The prize rewards that strange kind of research that seems silly but is really profound. My favorite this year went to John Perry at Stanford for his 1996 article, "How to Procrastinate and Still Get Things Done". If anyone wants to collaborate on a study examining structured procrastination habits of undergraduate medical students and senior clinicians, let me know: I've been looking for something to do to avoid some more important and pressing tasks.
