“Bee Sting Secrecy”– an Ig Nobel Prize favorite moment

This historic Ig Nobel Favorite Moment video stars Michael L. Smith, Ig Nobel Entomology & Physiology Prize winner for carefully arranging for honey bees to sting him repeatedly on 25 different locations on his body, to learn which locations are the least painful (the skull, middle toe tip, and upper arm). and which are the most painful (the nostril, upper lip, and penis shaft).

The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that make people LAUGH, then THINK.

The 30th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony will be webcast September 17, 2020 at www.improbablecom.wpcomstaging.com.
