The 2016 Ig Nobels
Chemistry Prize: Volkswagen, for solving the problem of excessive automobile pollution emissions by automatically, electromechanically producing fewer emissions whenever the cars are being tested.

Psychology Prize: Verschuere, for asking a thousand liars how often they lie, and for deciding whether to believe those answers.

Rats in tiny trousers, pseudoscientific bullshit, the personalities of rocks, and Volkswagen’s, shall we say, “creative” approach to emissions testing were among the research topics honored by the 2016 Ig Nobel Prizes. The winners were announced last night at a live webcast ceremony held at Harvard University.

The #Skittles - they keep on a-giving!

#Drumpf #NeverTrump #Hillary2016
No. No, I wouldn't.

This is not hard.

* I have not yet seen a Trump fan come up with a clever Skittle retort worth leaving intact, therefore, comments closed.
@Paulhitsheet @NicholasPegg @ianmodmoore Remember, like Colbert said, that skittle doesn't like M&Ms. Well, not the brown ones at least. amycrea. 11h11 hours ago. amycrea @amycrea. @NicholasPegg @heideland Hope they got permission from the photographer.

So yes, it's a bit further north than, oh, downtown. But it is *so* worth the trip. The banh-mi (stick to it, and it's variations), the ché, and pretty much any other vietnamese item you can find there is spectactular and authentic, worthy of the streets of Hanoi.

Its up north, near Chago's (awesome sandwiches!), on a side-street, in what is clearly a converted wee house. Tables outside, a bar and a few tables inside, your basic hole-in-the-wall establishment. But the food is *excellent*, the cocktails are crafted with care, the staff is friendly, and the entirety is a place that you will find yourself coming back to repeatedly. Can't recommend it highly enough...

Excellent beer list, so so bar food. But, then again, did i mention the excellent beer list? And a "just right" ambience to boot...

So, this is one of those "chinese, but with excellent ingredients" kind of places, where the dishes actually taste quite good. The soup dumplings, in, particular, are really quite good (if pricey). As for the rest, the flavors are somewhat spot-on. Now, if the prices were around 20% lower, I'd max out the rating :-) (oh, there is also an excellent beer and wine list)
