"ECONOMICS PRIZE. Geoffrey Miller, Joshua Tybur and Brent Jordan of the University of New Mexico, USA, for discovering that professional lap dancers earn higher tips when they are ovulating"


Some groundbreaking research being done at the University of New Mexico.

But I guess it does make you think.

One of my favourites (not this year, though) was someone who did a study to find out where belly button lint comes from. :)

Very funny, and the people who win them always seem to really enjoy it.

It is helpful for advertisers. They like using ovulating models to sell whatever they're selling.
