minimovie: Bottomless soup bowls

Filmmaker Bahram Sadeghi made a six-episode minimovie documentary about Ig Nobel Prize winners. We are showcasing one episode a day here. (If you can’t wait to see the others, watch the entire set in hi-def at the web site.)

Episode 5: Brian Wansink explored the seemingly boundless appetites of human beings, by feeding them with a self-refilling bowl of soup. That creative experiment was good enough for the Nutrition prize in 2007.
