Bayblab #1 at predicting the IgNobels

We have a surge of traffic to the bayblab website today thanks to our successfull prediction of "Termination of Intractable Hiccups with Digital Rectal Massage" as a IgNobel 2006 laureate in medecine. We are currently the #6 hit on google for those particular search terms. It never felt so good to be experts in the science of assology. This is a testament to the superiority of bayblab to sites like thompson scientific. Our team of experts recognised back in June the potential of this reaserch based on the limited scope of this new field of assology and the lack of any references and citation to the work. Other winners include :
Maths: How many photos must be taken to almost ensure no-one in a group shot has their eyes closed, by Nic Svenson and Piers Barnes
Ornithology: Why woodpeckers do not get headaches, by Ivan Schwab and the late Philip RA May
Nutrition: Why dung beetles are fussy eaters, by Wasmia al-Houty and Faten al-Mussalam
Acoustics: Why the sound of fingernails scraping on blackboards is so annoying, by D Lynn Halpern, Randolph Blake and James Hillenbrand
