Come to the annual Improbable Research Session at the AAAS Annual Meeting, in San Jose, California.
- Saturday, February 14 (Valentine’s Day), 8:00 pm
- Hilton San Jose Hotel, in the Almaden Ballroom
- It’s open FREE to the public
The show will include, in addition to me, rare appearances by:
- Dr. Ivan Schwab, Ig Nobel Prize winner (for showing why woodpeckers don’t get headaches)
- Gale and Don Sturtevant, nearest living relatives of George and Charlotte Blonsky, Ig Nobel Prize winners (for inventing a device – US Patent #3,216,423 – to aid women in giving birth — the woman is strapped onto a circular table, and the table is then rotated at high speed)
- Yoram Bauman, performing economist
The event always spills out the doors, so if you want a seat, get there a little early.
Please spread the word.
Here’s a glance at the patent for the Blonsky device:
BONUS NOTE TO BAY AREA JOURNALISTS: The Blonskys lived, in their final years, in the San Jose area, with the Sturtevants.
BONUS: Full schedule of Improbable Research events, including the March 2015 tour in the UK, Belgium, Denmark, and Sweden. (Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists (LFHCfS) Man of the Year Alex Dyson will appear at the Imperial College London show, on March 20.)
