from the urls-we-dig-up dept
There are a lot of online contests, sponsored by all sorts of organizations (usually non-profits). Some of the contests are challenging, and others are just a little strange. Here are some examples that caught our eye.
- A professor of cybernetics promotes the Google Science Fair by encouraging kids to explore and experiment.. and by telling students that one of his own projects involves putting human brain neurons into robot bodies. Great, now kids everywhere are wondering how to scrape brain cells out of their younger siblings. [url]
- Play matchmaker for a guy named Chas... and get a chance at winning $10,000. If Chas marries the girl you recommend for him, collect the money -- or cut out the middlemen, ladies. [url]
- PETA has a $1 million prize for anyone who can sell the first in vitro chicken in "commercial quantities" by June 30, 2012. The lab-grown meat also has to pass a taste test from a panel of PETA judges -- hmm, but how do those judges know if it tastes authentic? [url]
