Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists

It may sound hard to believe but it’s true. The people at Improbable Research sponsor the LFHCfS as well as their better known awards for improbable research (the Ignoble Prizes) – which they define as ‘research that makes you laugh and then think’. Have a look at some of their awards and also their gallery of men and women with Luxuriant Flowing Hair. We might nominate our very own Adrian Frost. On the right is one of the early members, Steven Pinker.

This year’s IgNoble prizes included the Medicine prize for finding the roller coasters may help asthma, the Peace prize for finding that swearing does relieve pain and the Biology prize for finding that fellatio by fruit bats prolongs copulation time.
