The awards cover physiology, chemistry, medicine, psychology, literature, biology, physics, mathematics, peace, and public safety, just like the real Nobel Awards, and the ceremony (held at Harvard University) is presided over by real Nobel winners. This year brings an interesting twist, in that the mathematics prize was awarded to non-scientists; specifically, it was awarded to the folks who vehemently predicted the end of the world, due to spurious mathematics, from Pat Robertson to Harold Camping. That particular prize is curiously dominated by Americans (U-S-A! U-S-A!).
