在过去的一年里,好奇的科学家们又取得了许多重要的发现,比如为什么袋熊的便便是方的?多吃披萨能长寿??男人左右阴囊哪个温度高???

这些了不起的发现,都在2019年的第29届搞笑诺贝尔奖颁奖典礼上得到了表彰。

Ten awards were handed out on Thursday at the annual ceremony at Harvard University in the US.

星期四,美国哈佛大学举行了一年一度的搞笑诺贝尔奖颁奖典礼,共颁发了10个奖项。

Now in their 29th year, the awards included a chemistry prize for Japanese scientists who calculated how much saliva a typical five-year-old produces in one day (half a litre); an engineering prize for an Iranian inventor’s nappy-changing machine; and an economics prize for Dutch researchers who discovered that banknotes can spread infectious microbes.

搞笑诺贝尔奖今年已经是第29个届。日本科学家因为计算了5岁儿童一天产生的唾液量 (半升)获化学奖; 伊朗科学家发明出换尿布机 获得工程奖;荷兰研究人员发现钞票会传播传染性病菌 获得经济学奖.

意大利科学家:多吃披萨能长生不老?

Italian scientists won the medicine prize for pursuing the idea that pizzas offer protection against death, a question they never quite managed to answer.

意大利科学家因为提出吃比萨能预防死亡 的想法而赢得了医学奖,虽然这个问题他们从未完全证实过。

Silvano Gallus won an Ig Nobel for his research that found yes, pizza is good for you. Well, maybe just pizza that’s made and consumed in Italy.

意大利科学家Silvano Gallus研究发现吃披萨有好处。好吧,也许只是因为意大利是披萨的制作和消费大国?

“We found that pizza consumption in Italy was protective for many chronic diseases that are known to be influenced by diet: digestive tract cancers and infarction,” Gallus said in an email.

“我们发现意大利人吃披萨对许多已知受饮食影响的慢性疾病有预防作用 ,比如消化道癌症和梗塞,”Gallus在电子邮件中说。

男性左右睾丸哪个温度更高?为了研究这个羞羞的问题,生育专家Roger Mieusset和Bourras Bengoudifa测量了11位法国邮递员的睾丸的温度……

The researchers explained their experiment involved measuring scrotal temperatures with probes every two minutes.

研究人员解释说他们要求实验对象每两分钟用探针测量阴囊温度。

They asked 11 postal workers to stand for 90 minutes while they measured the temperature of their scrotums.

11名邮政工人要保持站立90分钟,测量阴囊温度。

According to his studies, the left one is warmer, but only when a man has his clothes on.

根据他的研究,左边的一个更温暖,但是,只是当男人穿着裤子的时候。

Mieusset has invented heated pants for men to wear as an aid to contraception.

Mieusset之前还发明了男士加热内裤作为避孕的辅助手段。

为什么袋熊的便便是方的?

Patricia Yang and David Hu, both engineers at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, celebrated their second Ig Nobel prize at the ceremony.

Patricia Yang和David Hu都是亚特兰大乔治亚理工学院的工程师,他们在颁奖典礼上收获他们第二个搞笑诺贝尔奖。

This year, the two share the physics prize for working out how wombats make cube-shaped faeces. The feat, thought to be unique in the animal world, helps them construct stable piles of dung to mark their territory.

今年,两人因为研究袋熊排出方形粪便的方式和原因,共同获得了搞笑诺贝尔物理奖。正方体的便便被认为在动物世界中是独一无二的,可以帮助袋熊建造稳定的粪堆来标记它们的领土。

按照传统,所有这些赢家都会获得一笔“巨款”。

The winners received $10 trillion Zimbabwean dollars, which is virtually worthless, and each was given one minute to deliver an acceptance speech enforced by an 8-year-old girl whining “Please stop. I’m bored.”

每一个获奖团队或个人将获得:10万亿津巴布韦币,实际上在津巴布韦,由于惊人的通货膨胀,这点钱几乎可以忽略不计。所有获奖者发表获奖感言的时间只有60秒,如果超时就会有一个8岁小女孩对着你大吼大叫:“快停下吧!太无聊啦!”

每一年的获奖项目,都是一开始让你发笑,但是背后却有重要科学意义。
