Ig Nobel quest?

March 14, 2003

Glynis Breakwell ("Bath gets nod for double vision", THES , March 7) must be angling for an Ig Nobel ("Lab laughs", THES , March 7) with Bath's £200 million Swindon move.

Courses offered at Swindon's Oakfield campus include past-life regression, psychic development and other new-age nonsense. Injecting Bath's clutch of 5*s and Breakwell's £200 million into such a syllabus must result in at least one or two articles in Marc Abraham's (in)famous Annals of Improbable Research , and perhaps a coveted prize.
