The cat and the didgeridoo, or, my, what big ears you have, Grandpa

Can a cat be both a solid and a liquid? That was a topic investigated by one of the scientists honored at the 2017 Ig Nobel Prizes last Thursday. Other researchers receiving Ig Nobels studied such topics as didgeridoo playing as a treatment for sleep apnea and snoring, how exposure to a live crocodile influences gambling behavior, the size of old men’s ears, walking backwards with a cup of coffee, whether identical twins can tell themselves apart, and other recondite topics.

  1. Hello, I stumbled upon your blog while looking for Alfred J. Kwak subtitled and I saw you had it at some point…
    I know the post is 10 years old, but do you know where can I download or watch it?
    I’ve been looking for a while but I can’t find anything

  2. If you speak Dutch, some of it is on YouTube. If you need the English sub, you’re probably out of luck. I just checked where I found it years ago, and it’s not available there anymore.

  3. youtube also has the uk english dub, but I was hoping to be able to see it subbed since it gives the impression much of the dialogue was dumbed down like in the little prince anime
    thank you for checking, it’s a pity it’s not available anymore

    thank you so much for replying, have a nice day! 🙂
