My favourite from this year’s crop has to be the Chemistry prize. I hope @Richard.Dane will allow a link to an open access paper
but in case it doesn’t survive here’s a quote from the abstract.
“ In order to determine whether these emissions vary predictably in response to audiovisual stimuli, we have continuously monitored carbon dioxide and over one hundred volatile organic compounds in a cinema. It was found that many airborne chemicals in cinema air varied distinctively and reproducibly with time for a particular film, even in different screenings to different audiences. ”
The Medicine prize for a paper on the effectiveness of orgasm as a nasal decongestant was also of note.
