Slag's Nobel Prize Challenge!
What nation has the most Nobel Laureates (prize winners) per capita?
The answer may surprise you, and it will certainly lead to some interesting ruminations from me, and hopefully from you as well.
So, have at it, Total Drekkers! Comment to this post with wild guesses and/or carefully researched answers. E-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) for a hint. A big useful hint. If you do research the answer, please provide your first guess as well - I'm interested in seeing people's unresearched responses.
Each winner will receive some kinda prize! Um, not a Nobel prize. Maybe a sheet of notebook paper with the words "Nobel Prize" misspelled on it.
Note: there are acutally two possible answers depending on the way things are counted. I will accept either answer.
The answer, and the winner(s), will be revealed at 9:00 PM Eastern Time tonight.
Further thought: Pope John Paul II was considered the frontrunner for the last two Nobel Peace Prizes, but he never won. Now, he'll never win one - prizes can only go to living people. John Paul II certainly got a lot of other recognition, but it's kind of sad he'll never win this one.
