    None of the above. A nobel peace prize since the 1960s has meant giving it to someone who makes war more likely. (Look at the list of awardees and you will see what I mean.) The other two require PC of enormous nature.

    Plus the nobel people have shot themselves in the foot credibility wise too many times, such as giving it to Arafat the terrorist, to Gore for incredibly faulty, panic-mongering pseudoscience, and to the Obamanation for…let’s see, what was that for? Oh yeah, for doing absolutely nothing.

    An Oscar. If I ever get one, my speech will be remembered long after the movie I win it for is.

    And again, some of you manage to turn a harmless comic into a political rant.
    It WASN’T EVEN about the Nobel Peace prize!

    I wonder what it is with US citizens that makes them want to drag politics into everything… on the other hand, why do I even bother?

    There’s always someone with an axe to grind out there and it’s extraordinary how often they are off topic.

    Please try to have some patience with us. Nab brings politics into everything, and I’m frequently amazed at how many don’t know that the Nobel prizes are more than peace and literature. It’s just people here don’t want to try to think about science and math.

    I just thought it nice how Caulfield came right back with “Genius.”

    The MacArthur’s are often referred to as the “Genius Awards”

    so, mlk jr’s nobel is meaningless? einstein’s nobel is meaningless? or, gb shaw, sinclair lewis, thomas mann’s nobels are meaningless? faulkner, hemingway, camus, pasternak, steinbeck, sartre, unicef, red cross, docs without borders, nobels are meaningless? and, even crick, watson, wilkins’s discovery of the dna is meaningless?

    Nah, the PC doesn’t need to be of enormous nature. Anything with a word processor is enough to get the Pulitzer, and maybe throw in a C compiler and a few discipline-specific tools for the science Nobels.

    Well said.

    Do what I do, scroll past the trolls.

    You are absolutely right. The obsession with politics that some people display here is extremely disturbing.

    Debt Free, ExoticDoc, Nabuquduriuzhur, and others of like “minds”: The Nobel Peace Prize is awarded by the Norwegian Storting (parliament). The other five Nobels are awarded by the Swedish academies. What does the judgement of the Norwegian politicians have to do with the judgement of the Swedish academics? Or is this just another example of people spouting off about something
    they have no understanding of?

    peterhuppertz: It is because Fox is incapable of discussing scientific or artistic achievements, and so their worshipers know no other subject than Reich-wing politics.

    Funny, I would’ve said that the best prize is to be a fond memory in the mind of a stranger. But what do I know?
