The fates thwarted my Ig Nobel attendance (well, actually, it was my stupidity)
Posted by David Brooks | Friday, September 13, 2013
I have attended 17 (I think) Ig Nobel award ceremonies over the years, but I missed last night's because I stupidly didn't notice until the last moment that it was starting earlier than usual - at 6 p.m.
Trying to rush from N.H. to Cambridge at rush hour, even if you're going against it, is a Very Bad Idea; my wife and I didn't make it. So we went to a bar and had a couple drinks, pretending we were young!
Until I watch it online, I'll depend on press coverage. I remember the first few years, the Igs were excited to get coverage even from a little paper like The Telegraph. These days, even the BBC covers them.
