Happily, for this project lead by Chris, we were awarded the 2020 Ig Nobel Prize in economics, “for trying to quantify the relationship between different countries’ national income inequality and the average amount of mouth-to-mouth kissing”. Below, you can watch the ceremony (if you want to jump to Chris receiving the prize, go to 28:13).
