It went to the Air Force Research Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio. The group invented a chemical weapon, nicknamed the "gay bomb," that when dropped causes heterosexual men to become attracted to one another instead of aggressive.
Meanwhile, the Ig Nobel prize for medicine went to Dan Meyer and Brian Witcombe for studying the side effects of sword swallowing.
As for the research into the bomb that would cause heterosexual men to become attracted to one another instead of being aggressive, I really think it sounds a good idea. I have worked as a nurse for many years and so I have come into contact with many gay men(and women) because the gay men that I have met seem attracted to working in the caring professions. I have also lived next door to gay men on three occasions and would choose to live next door to them rather than my fighting neighbours that I live next doo0r to now, ANYTIME. The men that I have known would just not be interested in fighting and that sounds like a good idea to me, if they were involved in politics then they would probably spend the entire defense budget on the NHS and Education. The only complaint that I ever had was that one neighbour loved to play the Spice Girls, VERY LOUDLY! However, the daughter of the previous owner of this house was OBSESSED with Jason Donovan and stuck every picture that was ever printed of him on my large bedroom walls with what must surely have been super glue, now surely the super glue and Jason Donovan was the more heinous crime!
Beauty went out with her new child minder on Sunday and Beauty seems to have had a brilliant time, apart from when they passed the ice cream van and Beauty didn't get an ice cream because the child minder wasn't sure if she was allowed one!Oops.
I however spent the time catching up on my rest time and had a nap, pure bliss.
When Beauty was approximately 3 years old she made 2 bids for freedom in quick succession, through the living room window! Since then the windows have been changed and with her love of the computer and videos, nothing seems to have enticed her to attempt to escape again. However, yesterday she tried twice to leave the house on her own.
The first time I caught her with the front door open and the second time I found her unlocking the back door!
The keys will definitely have to be kept out of the doors in future.
