It’s Nobel Prize season again, and again I’ll have my annual contest, which almost nobody ever wins. Your job is to guess the Nobel Prizes for this year in all four following categories:
- Physiology or Medicine
You must get all four right to get the prize, which is an autographed copy of either Why Evolution is True or Faith Versus Fact (your choice). And in the book, besides making it out to you, I will add a genuine PCC(E) drawing an animal of your choice.
You can make only one guess per category (no saying “it could be X or Y or Z”). For areas in which more than one person can win—science prizes can be shared by up to three people—it’s best to name just one person, for if you name someone who doesn’t win, you lose the whole category.
Put your choices below. What do you have to lose?
If several people guess all four right, the first entry wins.
