Saved you two clicks. Based on five events, as one doctor was unable to find the head.

If he can’t find it after almost two days he must have his head up his ass.

The only difference between science and screwing around is writing it down.

Haha! FART

Sounds like the writer was blowing hot air.

Honestly thought this was going to be PNAS.

They always publish goofy stuff like this.

Can't wait to say "That's about a 7 on the fart score" next time I let on rip

I'm guessing the Lego heads came out


TarMil t1_j67xsf4 wrote

Lego heads but with a different facial expression than the one they swallowed.

Rare vader head half melted by acid!

That's just EU damaged Vader from the Starkiller game.

They do know they (or anybody) can do this with corn, right?

Gotta be, right? Otherwise what’s the point of Ig Nobel?

I think I’ll need to see the Shart Chart shitistics on this.

Let me guess......

Legos came out.


popejubal t1_j68j88u wrote

I’m looking forward to seeing these results show up on r/dataisbeautiful


random980 t1_j69aoj8 wrote

Not sure I really want a detailed look at "what came out" of those 6 doctors to be honest.

I don't think those yellow bits were corn...

Next you swallow them Duplos Mr. Doktor.

So just checking, where are we at on that cure for cancer? Global food stability? The island of trash in the Pacific?

Thanks scientists for tackling the big issue here


precinctomega t1_j67rn0n wrote

First, this research is designed to raise awareness among parents of the fact that swallowing Lego bricks is harmless to children, in order to reduce demand of Accident & Emergency teams, thus reducing waiting times and improving outcomes for people with serious emergencies. So it's worthwhile in its own right.

Second, even if it didn't have immediate impact value, almost all progress is made incrementally. All advancements of our knowledge are good, because we can never predict when a new finding will have an unexpected relevance.


ImhereBen t1_j682zld wrote

Sounds like this progress was made excrementally


PermanentTrainDamage t1_j695gly wrote

Wouldn't that depend on the type and amount of legos swallowed? Lego heads are one of the smallest and smoothest pieces, of course they don't pose much danger. My idiot nephew swallowed a lego treasure chest and ended up with a cut on his esophagus.


SailboatAB t1_j6a7gcu wrote

Well sure, but I'm dubious that scientific results will calm down a panicky first-time parent who thinks their child might have swallowed something.

Where are you at on those issues


IAmTheClayman t1_j67mr1s wrote

Dude I’m a game designer. I’m not nearly smart or talented enough to be a scientist.

That said, that’s some solid false equivalency. Great food critics aren’t all great chefs. Most movie critics have never directed a film. Also I was mainly making a joke buddy
