The Nobel Prize in Physics

...not just for huge geeks anymore!

Actually, that's not true. It's still reserved for big science-y nerd types. Otherwise they would probably call it the Nobel Prize in Beer Bonging.

So, anyway, a couple of Americans and a German shared the prize this year, winning for the use of "lasers" in optics. These "lasers" were utilized in the development of, among other things, the optical frequency comb. This quickly became the second most important comb in the physics community, second only to the moustache comb.

*ba dum bum*

(Because, you see, physicists have a reputation for liking the facial hair)

(It's funny...really.)
