I'm currently re listening to the course on how to listen to music (Open Yale courses). I can't say I manage to follow along completely but maybe I will learn something and the Corelli variations in lesson 10 are so wonderful.
It's time again for the nobel price ceremony, and if you do not have a new revolutionizing theory on branes, a elixir for eternal youth cooking in the kitchen or the big Uzbeki novel in your typewriter the chances of you going to Stockholm and participating in the event are rather slim. To make amends here's a short resume of what awaits the nobel laureates.
Arrival at the airport be prepared for some screaming fans swedes love science.
The laureates stay at Sweden's top hotel (the worlds only skyscraper completely built out of wood) in the heart of gamla stan (the old city).
Nobel laureates sometimes get lost that's why each laureate get one nobel shepherd and one nobel shepherds dog assigned when checking in at the hotel.
the laureates gets a sightseeing in Stockholm.
At the same time the food is being prepared in the Nobel kitchen, in this kitchen everything get's cooked by the help of dynamite.
At the actual award ceremony the medal is given to the laureate by the royal robot (there has been some concerns about the Swedish kings moral, rest assure the robots pedigree is spotless)
the Dinner after the ceremony is a great opportunity for the laureates to mix with the cream of Sweden's top celebrities. To keep the dinner short and sweet all candles are dynamite sticks with a slow fuse, Swedish people loves punctuality.
As a goodbye gift each laureates is given his or hers weight in dynamite
this might be a reason why it's so hard to get a flight from Sweden.
Most laureates instead stays in Sweden and are signed in to Sweden's ambitious breeding program, a program that aim to make Sweden self sufficient in Nobel laureates by 2050.
