One of this year's winners of the Ig Nobel awards has me laughing out loud. After a series of what must have been highly amusing experiments, scientists have demonstrated that the notorious ‘beer goggle' effect where we judge others to be better looking once we've had a few drinks also works on oneself. As the alcohol flowed, people found themselves increasingly attractive.

Ig Nobel awards are supposed to make you laugh… and then think. My thoughts are… should I be dating in pubs?
