the physics nobel prize has been awarded to a guy who noticed thin layers of pencil lead on scotch tape, stuff now called graphene. his earlier work, which got him the ignobel prize, concerned levitating frogs. speaking of frogs, i saw a guy at the cvlub with a shirt that said frogtape.com, so i googled it. it turns out that frogtape is like duct tape (ducktape) except it's green and has a scientific way of making nice clean lines when you use it for painting. dunno how much it costs.
update Gein is one of the few Nobel prize winners to have coauthored a paper pdf with a hamster, reports boingboing.
