Violin Cleaning Journal Article Wins Noble Prize

Ig Noble, that is.  In Chemistry, not Violin Repair....   :wacko:  My favorite set of prizes, from my favorite journal

From the Journal of Irreproducible Results,  (now an unfortunate name change to Journal of Improbable Research) a highly respected journal out of the bastion of intellectual perspicacity in Cambridge, Hahvad.

See here: https://www.jstor.org/stable/1506167?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

And for press reports of this momentous occasion, we turn to the BBC, for those of us who favor Swans :Dhttps://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-45513012.

Reemember when there was a discussion(s) about violin cleaning?  Here is the link for one of them:

Everyone wanted a substitute for spit. Some recommended water; others Hill's polish, etc.  Or maybe no one recommended violin polish, especially not Hill's from Shar.  I offered to have sent our esteemed moderator something I picked up from a vendor that was called "Violin Spit."  The vendor claimed that she analyzed spit and created a substitute with enzymes, etc.  Turns out she was on to something...

Someone also mentioned cleaning kid's faces with mother's spit, but that came from Ahn Ahbah, not Hahvahd. :ph34r::lol:

Puns, you say?  Not by maestronutters....

BTW, there is what I believe to be a genuine Don Noon at Shar. https://www.sharmusic.com/Instruments/Violin/Professional-Violins/Don-Noon-Violin-Carlsbad-CA-2013.axd   I guess you now have really made it! 'Grats!

No certificate however, so maybe anyone's guess.  :(

7 -up?  :lol:

It is indeed one of mine, loosely based on the 1714 ex-Jackson.
