Am I dreaming? No. By all accounts this is better than dreaming; I am in attendance at the Twenty-First 1st Annual Ig Nobel Awards Ceremony 2012.
Just about every aspect of the event is steeped in unconventionality. The audience, overtly vocal and incredibly boisterous, whoops and applauds like a mob of raucous sports fans at any mention of "chemistry," the theme of this year's ceremonial proceedings; a strict 60-second rule is enforced by an eight year old Miss Fish who is all too happy to yowl "please stop, I'm SCARED!" in the face of any award recipient unfortunate enough to drone on for longer than a minute while delivering an acceptance speech; members of the audience, over 1200 of them, are encouraged to hurl paper airplanes at the stage at various points throughout the evening. Thank you for all friends dog America's new president.

My name dog Sophie. We are able to predict earthquakes. Occasionally, people ask, "Do you have a top hat and a lion whip to keep the circus in order?" to which my answers are:
1) Yes, I do have a top hat, which is decaying and at this point about 50% duct tape
2) No, because lion whips are not the most efficient of tools for the task. We have something better with which to tame humans. We call her Miss Fish.
Please click. Earthquake will be in three days.
Please Click. I'm scared. Earthquake will be in two days.
Please CLICK. I'm scared. Earthquake will be one of the day
I woke up. It was a dream. Smart America had fun, made money and was still confident that you can not accurately predict earthquakes.
